Top five best superminis 2013Back

FordFiestaSuperminis are one of the most popular types of car on the road, mainly because they are cheap to own and run. But also due to the fact that today’s superminis offer more than the average city run-about.

As the demand for smaller, more economical cars increases, superminis are becoming more competitive in terms of all that they can offer the average buyer.

Take a look below at Trusted Dealers pick of the top five supermini cars of 2013.

Ford Fiesta: Priced from £9,995

The Ford Fiesta remains Britain’s favourite, top-selling car and it is not hard to see why. Named ‘Best Supermini’ in the 2013 What Car? Awards, the Fiesta remains a great car to drive. It offers, responsive, accurate steering coupled with firm body control, whilst remaining smooth and comfortable for passengers. Performance is excellent as is its fuel economy and you’ll find a moderate amount of equipment as standard to keep you entertained.

Honda Jazz: Priced from £11,695

If you’re looking for practicality that comes at a good price, the all-new Honda Jazz has it in abundance. It’s a doddle to drive and costs little to run and own, which makes it one of our most popular superminis to buy this year. The focus on this supermini is practicality and versatility and it offers a choice of two petrol engines, a 1.2-litre and a 1.4-litre as well as a hybrid. It comes with a good list of kit included as standard as well as Hinda’s reputation for reliability. There’s also the fantastic 5 year warranty to consider.

VolkswagenPoloVolkswagen Polo: Priced from £10,650

Few models of supermini are as classy as the Volkswagen Polo. It might not be the most exciting car to drive but it has the VW esteemed badge as well as a track record for reliability and comfort all the way. To drive it handles well and performs as can be expected from a small-engined car, but enter its cabin and you’ll be impressed with the classy interior which rivals many other superminis when it comes to quality. It’s also surprising spacious inside with a decent sized boot and most versions are priced well against competitors.

Dacia Sandero: Priced from £5,995

If you’re looking for a cheap, cheap supermini which has the What Car? seal of approval, choose the Dacia Sandero. It offers outstanding value for money and it is not only practical but also offers a decent amount of space inside. To drive, the engine feels strong enough and capable enough, and the dash is solid and easy to navigate. In comparison to rivals, the Sandero offers more space and practicality than any other supermini in the same price range, but it does fall short on a few safety features.

Fiat500Fiat 500: Priced from £10,010

We couldn’t leave the Fiat 500 off our list, mainly for the fact that it’s such a likeable supermini car which is quirky and fun to drive. It also undercuts rivals in price and is one of the safest superminis on the market. It’s a great car to own and not only looks good but the drive is capable too, despite being slightly bumpy around the edges – it is better suited to city driving than longer haul. Its dimensions make it easy to navigate tight streets and its cute looks will entice you into owning one, despite there being better performing supermini cars available.
