Kia Picanto vs Volkswagen up! vs Hyundai i10

Cost per mile: 27.1pMonthly running costs: £225.83Total cost of ownership (3-years, 30,000 miles): £8,130

Kia’s Picanto city car blends sharp looks with manageable running costs, and while its three-cylinder petrol engine isn’t the best of its type, you can’t argue with Kia’s mammoth seven-year warranty.

The extra space granted by the latest model means it's even more attractive, while the five-door body is the only version you can get now. The entry-level 1 model is sparsely equipped, but you won't be bothered by that if you're scrimping on your outgoings.
