More expensive city cars can boast a better-looking interior, but Charade’s is simple, easy to use, with some attractive touches. There are some user-unfriendly features, like hidden electric mirror controls, but the interior is comfortable with plenty of visibility.

At speed and on the motorway, engine and wind noise become an issue. Adequate room for the front passenger, not too bad in the back so long as you aren’t carrying luggage for four people.Taller rear passengers will have no problems with head and legroom – for short journeys at least. Wide doors make it easy to get in and out of.
