Hyundai i20

The Hyundai i20 scores big on value for money, but it also represents a step forward in quality for the company's cars. It's very well built inside and neatly styled outside, making it a formidable rival for more established models like the Vauxhall Corsa. There's lots of standard equipment, reliability is excellent and the reassurance of Hyundai's lengthy five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty means you can buy with confidence.

A good choice of engines, three and five-door body styles, excellent standard equipment and the promise of hassle-free ownership make the i20 a strong contender for top honours in the supermini class. It's great value for money, and while it lacks the driving enjoyment of established cars like the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa, the Hyundai counters with comfort, good build quality and ease of use. It's a somewhat sensible supermini choice, but for buyers on a budget, you'll find a lot of deals that make a lot of sense.
