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 Vauxhall Corsa is one of the most familiar sights on British roads, thanks to its popularity as a first car. It’s stylish, practical, easy-to-drive and, in VXR-spec, a proper hot hatch. It’s also excellent value for money and cheap to run, too.
