What we are looking for
- Compact dimensions are key here; thus, so is clever use of interior space.
- And while small engines usually mean cheap insurance and good fuel economy, they can’t be too weedy, because they need to be able to hack the odd motorway journey.
- Agility and manoeuvrability are important, too, because these cars will spend their lives in town traffic and parking in tight spots.
