Chequebook on standby. The Hyundai i20 1.4 CRDi Style is the most expensive version of this capable supermini. The price, in fact, is a rather hefty £13,745. Ouch! The vehicle benefits from: five doors, stylish looks, composed handling, and a reassuring five-year warranty. It also has a 295-litre boot, which is about average for the class. Capacity can be increased to 1,060-litres by folding the rear seats flat into the nicely equipped interior.

Speaking of which, features include: partial leather seats, climate control, Bluetooth, and MP3 compatibility. It even has four electric windows and power mirrors. Good stuff. These gadgets are dragged around by a 1.4-litre 89bhp diesel engine. This averages a cost-cutting 67.3mpg. Emissions are low, so the i20 can be taxed annually for £30. The downside is performance. The sprint to 62mph take 13.5 seconds which is unremarkable.

The only issue is whether the Hyundai i20 1.4 CRDi Style is worth its price premium. After all, the 1.2 Classic only costs £9,995 – a noteworthy £3,750 less. This entry-level trim – despite having less power and torque - is actually faster to 62mph. It also sits in the same road tax band and has the same warranty. Why bother with the top-spec? For starters it has two extra doors, lots more toys, and averages 11.9mpg more than its sibling. Cheaper to run then, but this saving must be off-set against the initial price. The top-spec is worth the money, but only if you love gadgets. If not, a cheaper version might be a better choice.
