There's a huge range of choice to be had in the new car sector and thankfully this extends into the sub-10K category as well. You get a lot of car for this sort of money today, and we've identified a number of superb vehicles that start at under £10,000, representing amazing value for money.
With the Ford Ka already being one of the manufacturer's best selling cars, the latest model has a lot to live up to. It's been carefully designed to succeed. It's lighter yet stiffer, and both greener and cheaper to run. This car represents Ford's future - in more ways than one.
Reliability, safety, economy, low running costs. If this looks like the list of must have criteria for your next supermini, Toyota has the ideal candidate in its Aygo. You may miss out on the lively driving experience common to racier rivals and the styling will be bland to some eyes but if sensible is your thing, the Aygo takes some beating.
If you operate on the basis that all the minis from major manufacturers are more or less equally technically proficient, who's to say that buying the prettiest one isn't a reasonable course of action? Fortunately, thanks to some fantastic Italian design, there's more to the Fiat 500 than a slick piece of retro-styling.
Nissan's Pixo is proving to be a highly desirable acquisition for the small car buyer. Good to drive and pleasantly styled, it's extremely spacious for its size and very practical for family duties. With Nissan's first class reliability record thrown in, this is a car noticeably lacking in major faults.
There's plenty of space, it looks good, it's cheap to buy, cheap to run and decently built. As long as you don't expect excitement, the Kia Picanto barely puts a foot wrong. On top of that, the warranty is excellent providing the peace of mind that many car buyers prioritise above all else.
Hyundai has never been here before. The Korean company's previous supermini models were likeable enough but sold mainly on price. This i20 can take on its toughest Fiesta-class rivals head to head and substitutes cutting edge style for cutting edge value and pricing. Economical, roomy, well-equipped, tightly built and covered by an excellent warranty, there?s nothing ambiguous about this little car's appeal.
The latest version of Renault's Twingo gets sportier looks, better refinement and some choice bits of equipment thrown into the mix. The strong basic qualities of the car remain unchanged, however, and Renault should see its cute mini continue to challenge the models at the top of the class.
