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, 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.

Trim: SE L

SE L trim is worth considering because it still represents good value and adds micro-suede seat inserts, bigger 17in wheels,front fog lights, LED rear lights, dynamic indicators, privacy glass, climate control, electrically folding door mirrors, and keyless entry and start. You also get a bigger 9.2in infotainment screen with online connectivity. 

Engine: 1.5 TSI

We wouldn't turn you away from stepping up to the 148bhp 1.5-litre petrol. It’s the smoothest engine in the range, pulls strongly from low revs and is punchy in the mid-range — just the ticket for those who'll regularly be carrying a car full of people and luggage.
