Well, well, well – the Hyundai i10 1.2 Classic is cheaper than a soggy bag of chips. In fact, it costs a rock-bottom £8,195. Great for cost conscious motorists. Despite being priced like a ruined lunchtime snack, this city car is rather tasty. For starters, it has five doors for easy access to the rear. It also has a reasonable 225-litre boot that can be increased to 910-litres by folding the rear seats. Some cheap cars lack a split/fold facility.

Now, it would be easy to assume that the Hyundai i10's performance leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Nope. Its 1.2-litre petrol engine produces a pleasing 85bhp and knocks- out 89lb ft of torque. As such, this surprisingly capable run-around reaches 62mph in a respectable 12.2 seconds. There are plenty of slower cars on the market that cost far more. The i10 is also cheap to run, so expect to average 61.4mpg. That is diesel territory.

But come on – there must be a catch? Equipment perhaps? No again. The Hyundai i10 1.2 Classic has a fantastic specification for its salt and vinegar price. This includes: power steering, air-conditioning, electric front windows, twin air-bags, MP3 compatibility, and a CD player. Throw-in composed handling and a five-year warranty and it becomes clear that the i10 is great value for money. What a fantastic rain shelter for your fish and chips.
