What alternatives should I consider to a used Skoda Rapid hatchback?

The Seat Leon is one of our favourite used cars, and was our overall Used Car of the Year in our 2017 Awards. It’s stylish, comfortable, comes with a strong range of engines and low running costs, handles brilliantly and above all is great value for money.

The Vauxhall Astra feels more substantial than the Rapid, and it’s decent to drive, too, with a practical interior. Used examples are good value, and there’s almost as much room inside as the Rapid.
