MINI COOPER

Clos­est to the Lupo for com­bin­ing a qual­ity feel with a fun drive in a com­pact pack­age. £ 4000- 5000 gets you a vast se­lec­tion of nat­u­rally as­pi­rated R56 Coop­ers or blown S mod­els.

PEU­GEOT 106 GTI/ RALLYE

Even more in­volv­ing to drive and in­creas­ingly collectable ( es­pe­cially the orig­i­nal 1.3- litre Rallye), with good cars start­ing from around £ 3500. The Saxo VTS is a cheaper rel­a­tive.

SUZUKI SWIFT SPORT

An­other evo favourite, the Swift Sport is nippy, prac­ti­cal and plenty of fun, if lack­ing a lit­tle ca­chet. Well- main­tained first- gen­er­a­tion cars with 123bhp are priced from £ 3500 to £ 5000.
