Don't discount the Scala on the basis that it's cheap. It ticks many of the boxes that some more expensive family cars fail to do, with its supple ride, decent handling, good infotainment system, amazing rear seat space and vast boot. Only its cheap-looking interior and weaker-than-average resale values mark it down.

We'd recommend upgrading to SE trim. This gets added trinkets including a front centre armrest, cruise control, front-seat lumbar adjustment, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a height-adjustable passenger seat, rear parking sensors and automatic lights and wipers. You also get an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto, eight speakers and Skoda's ‘simply-clever’ features. These aim to make life easier with the inclusion of a parking ticket-holder mounted on the windscreen pillar, an umbrella stowed away in a compartment in the front door, an ice-scraper that doubles up as a tyre tread-depth gauge clipped to the fuel-filler cap, and a cap for the screen-wash that unfolds and turns into a funnel. 

We recommend the TSI 110, which is a cracking engine. Not only has it got enough low-end shove to keep up with the general ebb and flow of traffic with relative ease, but also decent overtaking power when you stretch its legs – it can hit 62mph from rest in 10.1sec. It has the pace over the 1.0-litre Kia Ceed, should prove more economical and it's our pick of the Scala range.
