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 90 petrol is our pick. Stick with the mid-range Techno trim and you’ll have yourself a very well-priced and practical family car, although it can’t compete with its German Volkswagen Polo rival for interior quality or infotainment.

This sporty trim sits at the top of the regular range, gaining a more aggressive front bumper, aluminium pedals, red accents and stitching plus an oval exhaust tip over S Edition. As you’re mostly paying for styling tweaks, we wouldn’t bother.

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.
