Subaru's new supermini, which revives the familiar Justy name, is on sale now at £8495 on the road.

If it looks familiar, that's because it's actually a Daihatsu Sirion with a different badge (the common link here being Toyota, which has shares in both Subaru and Daihatsu). The engine is nothing new either - it's 68bhp one-litre three-cylinder unit which can also be found in the Sirion, the Toyota Aygo, the Citroen C1 and the Peugeot 107.

There's just one model, called the 1.0 R, and it comes as standard with ABS, EBD, front and side airbags, alloy wheels, air-conditioning, a radio/CD, four electric windows, reversing sensors, an alarm, remote central locking and ISOFIX child seat mountings.

The Justy has a top speed of 99mph and a 0-62mph time of 13.5 seconds. More importantly for most buyers, it manages 56.5mpg on the combined fuel economy cycle, which equates to 118g/km - that means £35 annual VED and, if current plans are put into practice, exemption from the London congestion charge.

Unlike previous cars with the same name, this Justy is front-wheel drive only; there is no four-wheel drive alternative. Subaru's entry-level 4x4 these days is the most basic, 1.5-litre version of the Impreza.
