What alternatives should I consider to a used Vauxhall Viva hatchback?

The Kia Picanto is one of our favourites in this class. You get plenty of kit as standard and a choice of a 1.0-litre or 1.25-litre petrol engine, the larger of which is our choice, if you can find one. The car handles well and has comfortable seats as well as a long and transferable warranty.

The Skoda Citigo is great to drive, with a comfy ride and agile handling. Its interior is well thought out, too. It’s also quite economical, and is even classy inside. There are plenty of used examples at temptingly low prices.

Verdict

The Vauxhall Viva is easy to drive in town and comfortable enough, but it does little to stand out against the best city cars

  • Quiet and smooth engine
  • Good driving position
  • Comfortable ride
  • Small boot
  • Disappointing safety results
  • Underwhelming interior
