100. SUZUKI JIMNY
IN almost every way you can think of, the current Suzuki Jimny – which has been on sale since 1997 – trails behind supermini-based SUVS by a country mile. It’s cramped, noisy, short of safety equipment and comically bad to drive by modern standards.
However, if you need what is arguably the most capable small off-roader on sale – not to mention a cheap and incredibly reliable one – and care not for creature comforts, the Jimny is worth a look. Price range: £12,999-£15,299 Our pick: SZ4 (£14,299) Engine: 1.3-litre 4cyl petrol, 84bhp Transmission: 5-spd manual, dual-range selectable 4x4 Top speed: 87mph Economy: 39.8mpg CO2: 162g/km
