The Renault Clio represents even stronger value than before and its wide breadth of abilities makes it a great choice over its rivals. Indeed, it’s fun to drive without sacrificing much in the way of comfort, but few small hatchbacks combine this with a smart interior and a generous level of standard equipment. While the E-Tech hybrid version is smooth and efficient, it’s the cheaper 1.0-litre petrol engine in Techno trim that makes the most sense.

Our favourite engine is a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol with 90bhp and a 0-62mph acceleration time of 12.3 seconds.
