Best and worst small cars for less than £10,000

The best cheap small new cars

If you're after a new small hatchback, there are lots of fine cars to choose from. And what's even better is that you don't have to spend more than £10,000 to find a good one. In fact, if you look in our new car deals section, you'll find lots of great cars for less than that.

Most of these options are classed as city cars; that means they're ideally suited to cruising around towns or cities – although many are also perfectly at home in the countryside or on the motorway. These small cars are easy to park, too, and while they may not offer the sort of space you'd find in a larger family car, they do offer clever ways to maximise space for both people and luggage.

Here's our pick of the new cars on sale today if you're on a budget.

Best small cars for less than £10,000

Citroën C1

10. Citroën C1

Range price from: £9120 | Our pick: 1.0 VTi 68 Feel 3dr

Under the skin, the Citroën C1 is almost identical to the Toyota Aygo; the two cars are built in the same factory and have most of the same strengths and weaknesses. However, the Citroën is slightly cheaper to buy.

Peugeot 108

9. Peugeot 108

Range price from: £9120 | Our pick: 1.0 Active 3dr

Another car that's related to the Aygo, the Peugeot 108 matches the C1's tempting price tag. However, the 108 is available with extra technology and a wide variety of styling options that let you customise the car, hence its higher ranking.

Toyota Aygo

8. Toyota Aygo

Range price from: £8995 | Our pick: 1.0 VVT-i X-Play 3dr

Although the dramatically styled Toyota Aygo may not look like them, it is, in fact, closely related to the Citroën C1 and Peugeot 108. Each manufacturer has taken their car's styling in a different direction, but the Toyota is the most extreme and, more than the other two, offers more opportunities for personalisation. Its list price is also marginally cheaper than the French-badged alternatives.

Dacia Sandero

7. Dacia Sandero

Range price from: £5995 | Our pick: 0.9 TCe Ambiance

We'd be remiss if we didn't include the UK's cheapest new car on this list, because even in 2018 the Sandero's tempting entry-level price of £5995 makes headlines. The Access model that price relates to is a little spartan inside, though, so we'd spend a bit more and go for the Ambiance model, which comes with some useful kit including air conditioning, a DAB radio and electric front windows.

Suzuki Celerio

6. Suzuki Celerio

Range price from: £7999 | Our pick: 1.0 SZ3 (non-Dualjet)

The Celerio is well equipped, frugal and spacious. True, the interior feels cheap, but this is still a fine budget option, and the 1.0-litre petrol engine we recommend works well in a car of this size.

Ford Ka+

5. Ford Ka+

Range price from: £9795 | Our pick: 1.2 Ti-VST 70 Zetec 3dr

It may be called a Ka, but the latest Ford Ka+ is a very different proposition from the models that preceded it. Instead of a funky-looking and diminutive three-door, you now get a larger five-door that prioritises practicality and a cheap purchase price over fashionable looks.

Volkswagen Up

4. Volkswagen Up

Range price from: £9320 | Our pick: 1.0 TSI 90 High Up 3dr

The Volkswagen Up is closely related to the Mii and the Skoda Citigo, and while it's similarly good to drive, its classy interior helps to give it a more premium feel inside. In fact, the Up shames some cars that cost half as much again. It is comfortable to drive around town, and our recommended High Up trim gets you all of the equipment you're likely to want.

Hyundai i10

3. Hyundai i10

Range price from: £8995 | Our pick: 1.2 Premium SE

Short in length, tall in height and with five doors as standard, the Hyundai i10 is all about low costs and ease of driving. It's quieter and more spacious than most rivals, too, and comes with the reassurance of a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty.

Kia Picanto

2. Kia Picanto

Range price from: £9450 | Our pick: 1.25 3 5dr

We weren't big fans of the previous Kia Picanto, but with this new model Kia has seriously upped its game. Despite its cheap price tag, this Picanto offers generous space inside and excellent handling, and it's all backed up by Kia's seven-year warranty.

Skoda Citigo

1. Skoda Citigo

Range price from: £8635 | Our pick: 1.0 60 SE 5dr

Despite being fundamentally the same car as its Seat and Volkswagen cousins underneath, the Citigo reaches the highest place on our list because it's the cheapest to buy. It's also brilliant to drive, and Skoda's clever packaging means there's ample room inside.
