If you are looking for low running costs, eye catching looks and "big-car” refinement in a small package then a supermini is right up your street. They’re also practical, good to drive and easy to park in tight city spaces. That criteria is a lot to ask for a small car, but the ever improving supermini class means that there are some real gems out there.

A supermini is a vehicle larger than a city car but smaller than a small family car. If you are looking to downsize but don’t want to sacrifice style, most modern superminis offer good looks and technology that is advanced enough to compete with some executive saloons.
