The Mini is an excellent hatch, but does it have to be so grown up?
Cracking supermini is one of the best cars Ford makes. Britain’s top seller? It makes you proud.
The Sandero is deservedly doing well: a reasonable car for a frankly astonishing price.
If you need a roomy supermini this is about your last stop before a Honda Jazz. But it lacks the involvement of some older superminis.
