The SEAT Cordoba is essentially an Ibiza with a large boot. It never really caught on it the UK as there’s not really a market for small saloons and there’s not much of an engine choice. However, the one petrol and two diesels are frugal, insurance is low and it’s unlikely to let you down, so if you’re willing to look past the dowdy image and limited versatility, you could pick up a great bargain.
