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

All of which, backhandedly, compliments the other three cars on this test. They might cost less than a Waitrose ready meal, but the Twingo, i10 and Spark all deal with nasty, twisty, potholey British roads in surprisingly grown-up fashion. OK, that previous sentence must be suffixed with ‘for a trio of sub-seven-grand cars', but honestly, they aren't the tragic clangers you might expect. The i10 is a springy, enthusiastic little thing, while the Spark, though not exactly a lively drive, feels settled and passably solid. The Twingo is a blast, scurrying about with a vim that hints at its distant relationship to the last-gen RenaultSport Clio.
