The TG Nan Prix
Four of Britain’s least expensive cars. One Stig. No optional extras. Will any survive?

The Suzuki Alto - identical in all but badge to the equally budget Nissan Pixo - does indeed possess some options over and above the standard specification. Because it's a big cheat. While the other cars here have been plucked from the basement end of their line-ups, the only Alto we could get hold of was the plush, top-of-the-line (OK, it's a relative description) SZ4 model, which comes with split-folding seats, body-coloured door handles, foglights and - most nefariously of all - 14-inch alloy wheels. Ooh, alloy wheels, eh? Aren't we Mr La-Di-Dah? Bet you've got one of those new-fangled ‘tape decks' too, haven't you?
