Looking for a small car that’s easy to park, but hankering after the boot space and composed handling of a bigger vehicle? The SEAT Ibiza, originally launched in 1984, will do the trick. It’s the Catalan manufacturer’s challenger to the likes of the Ford Fiesta, Volkswagen Polo and Vauxhall Corsa. Priced in between the Fabia and the Polo, it competes well and holds its value to boot. Some might find the interior a little basic, but if that’s not a problem for you, the Ibiza is one of the best small cars out there – roomy, fun to drive, and with a choice of strong petrol engines.
