The Getz is one of Hyundai's most popular models and it's easy to see why. Cheap to run, spacious inside and a five-year warranty as standard make it a good choice if you're looking for an affordable and easy to drive car.

The Getz is one of Hyundai's most popular models and it's easy to see why. Cheap to run, spacious inside and a five-year warranty as standard make it a good choice if you're looking for an affordable and easy to drive car. There are few thrills to be had though and it's not especially comfortable either, with a cheap and dated interior plus a bouncy ride. The dull looks do little to help raise the temperature but at least there's good passenger space, particularly in the back where it is impressively roomy for such a small car. There's also a good choice of engines including the CRTD diesel which is cheap to tax and returns 63mpg.

 The interior space, I've fitted 4 adults, 2 rottweilers and camping gear and driven them up to the peak district on many occasions.

 Fuel economy and £30 year road tax. Excellent car for DIY servicng. Oil filter and sump plug easy to get to and there is no timing belt to worry about (chain driven).
