Which used Vauxhall Tigra sports should I buy?

The entry 1.4 is the best all-round buy as it keeps insurance and fuel costs down. It has only 89bhp and you might be tempted to opt for the 1.8-litre car with 122bhp, but in reality the larger engine doesn't feel much faster.

There's also a smooth 1.3 CDTi diesel (even slower than the 1.4 and very hard to find on the used market) and an auto option available on the 1.4 (which doesn't add anything to the driving experience), but neither are really worth bothering with.
