Here's an idea. Let's spend a few moments considering the top three new superminis for under £10,000. This class of vehicle is popular with a range of motorists, from newly qualified drivers to cost conscious pensioners. These urban champions appeal because of their pint-sized running costs, practicality, and overall ease of ownership. Sounds pretty good, so let's get started with the countdown.

Standing tall in position three is the new Fiat 500. This fashionable lifestyle statement earns its bronze medal because it is fun to drive, quirky, and has a 'certain something' that makes it more distinctive than a yellow battleship. One of the best models, if you want to balance performance with frugality, is the 1.3-litre 95bhp diesel. This reaches 60mph in 10.4 seconds and manages a highly respectable 72mpg. Very nice too.

Swerving past the Fiat 500 into second position is the new Nissan Micra. This Japanese run-around is so robustly constructed that it should last until mankind is extinct. This characteristic is the Micra's trump card, and one of the main reasons it appeals to practically minded motorists. Further plus points include the generous cabin space, bucket loads of standard equipment, and the confidence inspiring handling.

So, those are the runners-up in the top three new supermini countdown. The winner - drum roll please - is the eternally talented Volkswagen Polo. This urban masterpiece is a complete supermini package. It is fantastic to drive, stylish, built from granite, and earned Euro NCAP's maximum five star safety rating. All this for under £10,000, will wonders never cease?
