- Benefits of a supermini explained
- Should I consider buying one?
- Parkers explains the small-car genre
A supermini is a relatively small, cheap and economical car. Larger than a city car but smaller than a family hatchback, it's no wonder these small cars are selling like hot cakes as a busy world downsizes...
Cheap to buy, cheap to run, easy to park, often good fun to drive. It's motoring at its simplest.
Limited space, not the most comfortable long-distance tourer, not particularly powerful.
