What's the used Vauxhall Agila estate like?

The Agila is very much a city car for people with practicality in mind. Above all, it only takes up a tiny amount of road, meaning you can park it just about anywhere.

Despite these tiny dimensions, though, its MPV-like styling means that interior space is better than in the majority of city cars. There's lots of headroom and the upright seating position means adults shouldn't struggle for legoom in the back. The boot is a useful size, too.

This design has its price, though, because the Agila isn't much fun to drive - the engines are weak and the handling is stodgy. That said, the ride is pretty good, coping admirably with pot-holed city streets. Refinement would be pretty good, too, if it wasn't for the noise of the rowdy engines.
