We disguise a brand-new supermini and see if the public can guess what it is, and how much it costs...

There's a brand new supermini in town, and its maker has high hopes that it will shake up the UK market. So, to see what Britain’s motorists think of it, we took it to the Heart of Walton shopping centre in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, covered up all its badges and asked people to guess what brand of car it is and how much it costs.

Can you guess what it is? Here’s a hint: the car has a 75bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine and claims 47.9mpg economy and 137g/km emissions. Its basic spec list offers little more than ABS, brake assist, electronic stability control, airbags and daytime running lights.

If you’re not sure, don’t worry – most of the people we interviewed were at a loss, too, and they got to climb in and nose around it, Watch the video to see their guesses, and read the full feature in this week's issue of Auto Express (out 25 November 2012).
