1 Seat Ibiza 1.0 TSI 95 FR List price £17,235 Tar­get Price £15,224 Sav­ing £2011

Our cur­rent Small Car of the Year is de­cep­tively spa­cious and great to drive. There’s a strong range of petrol en­gines on of­fer, but the 1.0-litre op­tion is our favourite, be­cause it’s punchy from low revs.

2 Volk­swa­gen Polo 1.0 TSI 95 SE List price £16,310 Tar­get Price £15,108 Sav­ing £1202

If you’re af­ter an up­mar­ket in­te­rior for your small car, the Polo is an ex­cel­lent choice. It also of­fers plenty of space and im­pres­sive re ne­ment, while SE trim gives you 15in al­loy wheels, a leather steer­ing wheel and elec­tric rear win­dows.

3 Ford Fi­esta 1.0 Eco­boost 125 St-line 5dr List price £18,335 Tar­get Price £16,569 Sav­ing £1766

Think of a small hatch­back and chances are you’ll think of the Fi­esta; it’s the UK’S most pop­u­lar new car. It’s also fun to drive and, in St-line form, well equipped.

4 Hyundai i20 1.0 T-GDI SE List price £16,395 Tar­get Price £14,680 Sav­ing £1715

If you’re af­ter a small car that will give you loads of space and equip­ment for your money, the i20 should be on your short­list. Its in­te­rior space dwarfs that of most ri­vals, and it’s of­fered with a ve-year war­ranty and a long list of stan­dard kit.

5 Kia Rio 1.0 T-GDI 99 2 List price £15,260 Tar­get Price £14,466 Sav­ing £794

We like the Rio’s range of re ned petrol en­gines, and this 1.0-litre petrol op­tion should suit you well if you live in the city. With 2 trim, you get al­loy wheels, rear park­ing sen­sors and au­to­matic emer­gency brak­ing.
