The Volkswagen Up offers plenty of choice to appeal to a wide market, including electric and hot-hatch variants. It combines fun driving manners with generous standard equipment, while a high-quality interior sets it apart from rivals such as the Kia Picanto. It’s a shame the entry-level engine is a little underpowered, though, and automatic emergency braking isn’t available.

The Black Edition gets appropriately coloured 16in alloy wheels, dashboard fascias and a black roof, as well as and tinted glass. It’s only a couple of hundred pounds more expensive than the regular Up, but we don’t reckon it’s worth it for the sake of some extra paint.
