The UK’s best-selling car, and the car people immediately think of whenever the supermini class is mentioned. For good reason, too. The Fiesta is simply brilliant to drive, with a ride and handling balance that puts many more expensive cars to shame.
For many, the Ford Focus embodies the whole small family car sector. It’s one of the best cars of its type to drive, with agile handling, a comfortable ride and punchy engines. It’s also affordable to buy and run, and it’s practical enough for a small family.
The Yaris does a solid job in most areas, but doesn’t really dazzle in any, either. That said, it’s well equipped, easy to drive and should be faultlessly reliable. If that’s what you want from your next supermini, the Yaris fits the bill.
