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. In fact, only its cheap-looking interior and weaker than average resale values mark it down.

Trim: SE

Entry-level SE trim offers reasonable equipment, including 16in alloy wheels, a leather gear lever and steering wheel, cruise control, air conditioning, electrically operated and heated door mirrors, plus auto lights and wipers. You also get an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system, front seat lumbar adjustment, rear parking sensors and LED headlights.

Engine: 1.6 TDI

Provides a good swell of low-end shove, but it's no quicker than the 1.0 TSI 115 flat out and it's the least hushed engine in the range. The only benefits are for those looking for maximum fuel economy, because while CO2 emissions are slightly better than the petrol 1.0-litre, don't forget company car drivers will have to pay the 4% diesel supplement.
