The small car market is incredibly competitive, which is good news if you’re looking for a new supermini vehicle. Not only will you have a great range of models to choose from but you’ll also find that the standards for these types of cars are very high.

To be in with a chance of manufacturing the best small car on the market, the car must be comfortable for city and motorway driving. It must also provide you with enough boot space for your shopping trips, a decent amount of technology and have an interior that can meet up to the daily demands of your family. And, perhaps most importantly of all, it must be affordably and competitively priced.

So, to help you find your next supermini car, here are three of the best:

Ford Fiesta

It’s perhaps no surprise that the Ford Fiesta tops many top ten supermini lists, especially since the new model arrived on the market. It continues to dominate the sector with it being easy and fun to drive. Furthermore, the Ecoboost petrol engines offer a quiet yet punchy drive, and this plus point is topped off by the great discounts that are
available on these cars.

One of its counterparts, the Ford B Max, is also growing in popularity as it’s based on the best-selling Fiesta but is slightly longer and taller. It also boasts no central pillar and has sliding rear side doors, making it much easier to get more in your car. Great for taking the kids out or packing full of shopping, it’s available from companies like AA Cars.

Volkswagen Polo

Another unsurprising feature on our list, the VW Polo provides you with a premium small car in many ways. Not only does it have a smart, classy interior but it also looks fantastic on the outside, too. Some models can get quite pricey, but when you’re looking for an affordable supermini car, the 1.2-litre petrol engine offers a practical, economic style
that’s hard to beat.


Skoda Fabia

This car has won numerous awards during its time and is a favourite for many. Boasting a top-notch build and high-quality materials, the Fabia’s affordable to run. You’ll also find it at an affordable price, which means it’s a great little run around whether you’re travelling through the city or you’re taking to the open road.
