DoneDeal of the week: Two small cars that are big on space and fun

This week we have two small cars which are easy to drive and cheap to run.

THEY SAY GOOD things comes in small packages, and these two cars prove just that.

First up, this 2016 Skoda Citigo Ambition (€11,950)

The Citigo may be Skoda’s smallest car, but it is big on practicality and interior space. It shares a similar design to the SEAT Mii and Volkswagen up! but the Skoda ticks the best value for money box when it comes to equipment.

With room for four and a 251-litre boot, it’s ideal for urban dwellers looking for a compact car. You can fold down the rear seats to increase the cargo capacity to 951 litres, making those trips to Ikea that bit easier.

Power comes from a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine. It produces plenty of power for a car of its size and doesn’t need to be revved all that much. Even though the Citigo is a light car, it feels solid and composed on the motorway too. Fuel consumption is low, averaging around 4.5 litres/100km, while the annual motor tax of €190 makes it an affordable car to run.

Compact yet stylish, the Ford Fiesta remains one of the very best small cars on sale today. The 1.0-litre engine perfectly suits this nippy Ford which is great fun to drive and comfortable over longer journeys.

This five-door hatchback adds more practicality making ingress and egress easier for rear passengers. The boot is a useful 290 litres in size, and this can be expanded to 974 litres.

This particular car is well-equipped too with alloy wheels, electric windows, fog lamps, and a multifunction steering wheel as well as a host of modern safety systems. The Fiesta also scores a full five-star rating in the EuroNCAP test.
