Citroen's Fiat Panda - character over driving thrills, but none the worse for that.
Cracking supermini is one of the best cars Ford makes. Britain’s top seller? It makes you proud.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it; updated Captur is still one of the better small crossovers on sale

It's a sizeable leap, and enough to shove the Polo up to the upper reaches of the supermini order.
Good but not great supermini for dynamics, but a thoroughly enjoyable object
Cheery and characterful, the new Clio is a genuinely appealing supermini.

An appliance carefully targeted at people who are uninterested in cars.
