Alison Thompson is currently driving a Fiat Seicento, which she bought almost seven years ago on entering retirement. She reckons it won't see her out, and she has up to £5,000 to spend on a replacement. Ideally, Alison wants a very small car, and does not wish to pay more than £35 per annum road tax. She hates irritating gadgets so it must be basic. She also lives in a rural area so it must be able to cope with muddy roads just as well as more urban environments.

Sports cars and coupés might be what every keen driver secretly yearns for but when the reality of day-to-day life hits home many will choose a hot hatchback instead. Combining the practicality of the family cars on which they are based with strong performance and sharp handling it is easy to see the appeal.

Cars and cities don’t mix well but if a bicycle or Oyster card doesn't work for you, several manufacturers offer a choice of cheeky, nippy motors that will at least make all that time spent traffic jamming vaguely tolerable; here are ten of the best. They‘re all good for the occasional out-of-town journey and you may even turn a few heads as well.
