Don't discount the Scala on the basis that it's cheap. It ticks almost every box, with a smooth ride, decent handling, a good infotainment system, amazing rear seat space and an excellent boot.

Trim: SE L
We'd suggest going for the SE L trim because it still represents good value and adds micro-suede seat inserts, bigger 17in wheels, 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 and strong low down in the rev range with a punchy mid range — just the ticket for those of you who'll regularly be carrying a car full of people and luggage.
