Cheap 'n' cheerful Indian-built supermini. As you'd expect from one of Britain's cheapest cars, it comes with few frills, but if economy is what you're after, it will do the job offering cheap insurance and 40mpg.

Cheap 'n' cheerful Indian-built supermini. As you'd expect from one of Britain's cheapest cars, it comes with few frills, but if economy is what you're after, it will do the job offering cheap insurance and 40mpg. You'll have to really want a new car to pick this over a second-hand buy.

What owners say...

 Replacing parts is very straightforward and most parts are very cheap (except for main dealer parts).

 Surprisingly large. I live in university and can easily fit everything in the car in one trip when taking my things too and from uni at the end of each year.

 Economy - Always 50+ mpg and unlike it's replacement, it has a full size boot opening and low loading sill.
