An appliance carefully targeted at people who are uninterested in cars.
A far-reaching facelift has improved it, but it's still not a match for the class best. At least you can now justify it.
It's engine range isn't class leading, but overlook that and the Micra is a massively improved contender
Worthy supermini that majors on ease of use and grown-up design. Fun is in short order though
The best 21st Century MG yet. Other faint praise is available
Good but not great supermini for dynamics, but a thoroughly enjoyable object
Not as fresh as it was, but ageing gracefully, and still the best DS of the bunch.
Not as far behind the Ford Focus as you might think. Vauxhall's facelifted hatch is a very competent thing... but an all-new one lurks around the corner.
Citroen's Fiat Panda - character over driving thrills, but none the worse for that.
While still a comfy, useful hatchback, the C4 Cactus's move mainstream has taken away its class hero status
Not sexy, not fun, not a heartstring-tugger, but by gum is this a clever car. Brilliantly fit for purpose
