If you’re after something that’s stylish, comfortable and practical, the Taigo could be a great option for you. It's not as capable or fun as the Ford Puma but that’s forgivable given the superb ride, generous rear passenger space and the fact that you get plenty of toys with even the entry-level version.

Despite being the entry-level trim, Life comes with a generous amount of equipment including 16in alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, rain-sensing windscreen wipers, an 8in digital driving display, a touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio, Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring, wireless phone-charging and a leather steering wheel.

The second most powerful engine in the line-up is also our chosen version. That’s because it has a little more power, at 108bhp, and will get you up to motorway speeds with less fuss. It’s not the fastest thing in the world, but it responds quickly to your inputs and gives you sufficient performance for everyday driving. We’ve only tried it with the optional DSG automatic gearbox but imagine the six-speed manual gearbox will be great.
