Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

There are four airbags and the front end offers a big crumple zone as there’s no engine to get pushed backwards. It also has reassuringly powerful brakes with ABS, but the lack of stability control and such an uncompromising design means you’ll probably be the one causing the accident. Vehicle security is backed up by an RAC Trackstar vehicle recovery system that can even warn you of speed cameras if you choose.

There’s a tiny boot behind the engine, a small luggage area behind the front seats and a limited amount of space under the bonnet in the front (although this isn’t weather proof and there’s a drainage plug at the bottom). It maybe based upon a shopping car but this is one of the least practical cars you can buy. The low lip on the front bumper is easy to clout on speed bumps too – ripping it off altogether is not unheard of.
