The Skoda also sets the standard from behind the wheel, thanks to its smooth and eager three-cylinder engine, secure handling and composed ride. It’s also very refined, ensuring it’s a relaxing choice for long motorway journeys. And the dinky dimensions, light controls and excellent visibility make it equally at home on crowded city streets.

GreenTech models benefit from fuel-saving stop-start technology, which pushes CO2 emissions below 100g/km, while all versions will return 50mpg without breaking a sweat.

There’s also the lure of value pricing and generous equipment levels – the Elegance gets sat-nav and heated seats, while brilliant City Safe autobraking can be added for just £180.
