What alternatives should I consider to a used Toyota Yaris hatchback?
If driver enjoyment is a priority, then small cars don’t come any better than the Ford Fiesta – which, although not quite as spacious in the back as the Toyota Yaris, is still a practical proposition.
For an alternative small car from Japan, the Mazda 2 is worth a look. Like the Fiesta, it’s not as big on the inside as the Yaris, but it is great to drive and more frugal than the Fiesta in day-to-day motoring.
Other small cars worth considering include the Kia Rio for its seven-year warranty, the Vauxhall Corsa for its low purchase price and the Volkswagen Polo for its classy image and grown-up driving experience.
