I personally would recommend the yaris or a vw polo. Toyota yaris is pretty indestructible and very economical and being Japanese it will hold its value also they are a lot quicker than you would think.

And the polo is simply a vw and you can't go wrong with them!

I haven't Driven many small cars but I suppose it all Depends on how much you want to spend. I was loaned an Audi A3 last week by the dealer and I loved it....but I'm sure its a polo chassis so that may just drive as nice.

Dont get a clio they are pretty crap and tend to go wrong, even if its just something little tends to happen alot. I have had 4 clios, 1st a 1.4 then a 1.6 then a 2.0 182 then the same but a different colour and i found them all to be pretty naff in regards to things going wrong.

You cant go wrong with something Japanise or German.

As already mentioned, I think Id sway towards a Yaris...

The little Jap eco wagons dont go fast enough to need to be safe raftl

In all fairness though, the 2006-2011 Yaris scores very highly in crash tests...

Entry level T2 models have dual front airbags, while T3 (later TR) models have front side curtain airbags and - a first for this size of car - a driver's knee bag.
