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

The Chevrolet Spark, successor to the woeful Matiz, is less green but considerably more green. Of all the cheap cars here, it's the one making the most effort to look modern. Perhaps too much effort: the Spark has the faint whiff of something your gran might describe as ‘trendy'. Creases and angles abound, while those headlights are simply enormous, taking up a good third of the length of the car: clusters of similar proportion on a long-wheelbase Jag XJ would require measurement in furlongs.
