Best small cars and superminis
Small cars and superminis are still big business for car makers. Figures from the SMMT (Society of Motoring Manufacturers and Traders) prove that superminis still make up a massive percentage of UK car sales.

Big names in this class include the best-selling Ford Fiesta, along with the Vauxhall Corsa and Volkswagen Polo. That said, almost every mainstream manufacturer has a small hatchback in their range, which is why it was so hard to compile our top 10 list.
