THE best small car in show­rooms to­day is the Volk­swa­gen Golf. But when you’re shop­ping right on the $20,000 mark and your list has value as first, sec­ond and third pri­or­ity, things change.

When you’re also look­ing at the on­go­ing costs of a new car, from fuel and ser­vic­ing to tyres and in­sur­ance, the run­ning or­der might not be what you ex­pect. Even the im­pres­sive new Mazda3 loses out when you’re look­ing at start­ing-price con­tenders, as the 2014 model gets none of the dol­lar deal­ing of its ri­vals. So here are the three that get The Tick from me as the best buys at $20,000.
