The Materia is a small car that genuinely stands out from the crowd. You’ll either love its squared-off low-riding look or hate it. For those who love it, it’s worth considering it as an alternative to the Vauxhall Meriva and Nissan Note. That’s because with a decent standard equipment list, roomy interior and good build quality it makes quite a sensible buy.

It’s not a car that’s blisteringly quick or special to drive, but it is one that’s distinctive and guaranteed to get you noticed – whether you like it or not.
