With so many to choose from, it can be daunting to know which automobiles to look at for those looking for something small, stylish, easy to drive and economical. Here is the pick of the bunch:
A city car that has taken the industry by storm, the Hyundai i10 has scooped numerous awards and it is easy to see why. With a surprisingly spacious and high-quality cabin, the i10 is ideal for young families or professionals looking for an automobile that is nimble and easy to drive. Additionally, running costs are kept low with 60mpg economy.

This is an automobile that has a stylish design, high-tech equipment, large cabin, three-cylinder engine and impressive 62.8mpg return on the entry model.
