The Seat Ibiza has always faced stiff competition from other brands within the VW family, but it makes a great little city car. Now Cupra is where Seat is focussing, you could bag yourself a future classic (maybe) with this one.

Aimed deliberately at young city dwellers, the Audi A1 was the brand’s answer to the Mini. It’s an easy way to get into Audi ownership and the fact the A1 Mk2 is the last (at least until some all-electric successor arrives) means any secondhand purchase, such as this 2010 listing, could be a worthwhile investment. Probably.Advertisement - Page continues below
Vauxhall Corsa VXR
The Vauxhall Corsa is another long-standing best-selling supermini. This ULEZ-friendly 1.6-litre Turbo VXR comes in at a really great price. It's got a decent spec and has also been upgraded with a Kenwood head unit. Perfect to drown out the nagging feeling you should have saved up for a Nürburgring edition instead.
The Toyota Yaris has a long had a reputation for great fuel economy (be still thine beating heart!), due to its mild hybrid system coupled with a diddy 1.3-litre engine. While it doesn't offer the wildest drive, low running costs keep it popular. This 2012 one in white is a lower price than usual too.Advertisement - Page continues below
