Best supermini

Which models offer the benefits of a small car, with the reassurance and solidity of something a bit bigger?

More and more people are making the switch to smaller cars these days, and superminis are enjoying a sales boom as a result. These models offer minuscule running costs but limited practicality and comfort. We reveal the best of the bunch below.

Winner: Nissan Juke The Nissan Juke takes the crown in the supermini class thanks to consistent good performances throughout all the categories in the survey. In fact, the Juke’s worst finish was 53rd place for running costs. Those positive results were enough to see it take victory ahead of models like the Honda Jazz and Toyota iQ.

Last place: Peugeot 206 Peugeot 206 owners had plenty to say about their cars, but unfortunately most of it was negative. Poor performances in the handling, performance, braking and ease of driving categories reveal that owners are unhappy with the way the car drives. It didn’t fare much better in the build quality or reliability stakes, either, but scored its best result of 76th place in the running costs category.
