    Best new smallish car

    Looking for something no bigger than Astra size, but not as small as a Citroen C1/Kia Picanto. Comfortable for 4 adult and 2 mid-size cases. Not bothered about MPG as it won't be doing many long journeys, bar the odd airport run.

    Tried the Nissan Juke but little legs HID struggled getting in and out. Tried the Kia c'eed, and pleasantly surprised. Disappointed with how tinny the Clio was...

    Please enlighten me oh mighty forumites
    Give it big humpties

    No comedy moment intended but how about an Astra? Other suggestion, Seat Leon. Smaller than those will struggle with the cases you need to fit in.

    I have a bmw 2 series active tourer arriving this week (fingers crossed). Ticked all the boxes for me, spec of the basic model is up there with higher level competitors. Boot size is good as well which was a must for me.

    Fiesta or a Focus. Nice to drive.
    Hit a little white ball round a field into a small hole. Repeat.

    Re: Best new smallish car

    I downsized to a 1.3 Fiesta a couple of years ago.......my wife has driven Fiesta's for years and they are very reliable and economical.

    Once I got used to the gears I really liked it, especially on the motorways.
    As Duckster says, very easy to drive.
    Last year I drove from Dornoch to Glasgow without a break, nearly 5 hours. I don't think I would have done that in any of my previous cars.

    Mazda 3?
    Thats my next car, which can take my clubs and trolley in the boot without removing anything.
    Forever trying.

    Have a look at the Skoda Fabia and Skoda Rapid. Both good cars with lots of room.
    Or a Hyundai i30?

    Definitely in the Kia Cee'd brigade here. I have one - very comfortable, very economical, loads of goodies on board. Yep!
