Medium-sized car for supermini money and there are some great special offers around. Simple, basic transport with a good aftersales package and plenty of equipment.

Medium-sized car for supermini money and there are some great special offers around. Simple, basic transport with a good aftersales package and plenty of equipment. Re-sale values are low, but most owners keep them for long enough not to mind.

What owners say...

 It's a simple-to-use car with no bells and whistles. Good-sized boot and the seats fold down easily to increase the loadspace substantially.

 The radio worked, which was shocking in itself as each time you changed station the face fell of it.

 Fold the seat's down and the boot can swallow an adult bike , and maybe 2 adult bikes I haven't tried yet
