It might not be the most fun or comfortable small car, but the Clio continues to be a great all-rounder. The frugal E-Tech hybrid version will appeal to company car users, but the TCe 100 petrol is our pick. Stick with the mid-range Iconic trim and you’ll have yourself a very well-priced and practical family car, although interior quality and the infotainment system can’t compete with its german Volkswagen Polo rival.

The TCe 90 has a similar amount of power to the VW Polo 1.0 TSI 95 but doesn’t feel as punchy. With a lower torque output, it doesn’t perform as well from low revs, and requires you to work the engine hard to make progress. Get it spinning past 5000rpm and A-road overtakes are possible, but the Seat Ibiza and VW Polo are far more flexible and therefore easier to drive. With that in mind, we’d avoid the less powerful non-turbocharged SCe 65.
