What’s always been a popular choice amongst new drivers, singles, and couples, are small cars. Basically, your starter car to get you on the road at the lowest cost. Many new drivers opt to go for used small cars as a way of climbing the car prestige ladder.

Due to the recent shortage of the production of brand new cars caused by the Covid pandemic, drivers are increasingly searching for quality nearly new vehicles. Not only has it had a significant knock-on effect in the new car sector but has changed the way car drivers are now turning to the used car marketplace.

Best Price Car Sales has put together a simple guide to what we recognise as being the best used small cars of 2022. Our list is based on practicality, running costs and overall value for money.

Volkswagen Polo

Highly regarded as a supermini, the VW Polo even though is classed as a small car, it’s fairly roomy and has a bigger boot than its competitors and earlier predecessors. The key benefits to this used car model are, that it’s economical to run and cheap to buy.

The newer used models come with a good selection of engine ranges but what’s considered the best is the 1.0-litre TSI unit with a turbocharger. The Polo is a comfortable drive and a fun car to own, due to its mature looks and you can buy one at any age in life. 

SEAT Ibiza

This is now considered a great small used car purchase, as this car was recently awarded Auto Express’s winner in the New car Awards. Now it’s available as a cheap used car option. What’s great about this SEAT Ibiza used car is every basic SE models come with a colour touchscreen infotainment system with the last smartphone connectivity for navigation, and the 1.0-litre petrol version gives it a nice hefty boost when you need it to get you out of trouble.

As an all-rounder, this small used car is a great buy, with its generous boot space, decent drive, and responsive steering, making it also good on the motorway too.

Hyundai i10

Choosing a Hyundai used car is never really a bad choice but making your decision even better is choosing the second-generation i10 which offers a bigger boot space and better refinements. The standard set-up in this car is befitting to a higher specification make and model of car, which is never a bad thing. On top of being a great used small car to buy, Hyundai also comes with a five-year warranty too, so buy a newer used model and take full advantage of this huge benefit.

Toyota Yaris

This is a very smooth, very reliable, and highly economical car to drive. Ideal for navigating through the city and on urban roads.

Skoda Citigo

Recently voted the Best used city car, the Skoda Citigo is a fun and small family-friendly used car to drive. With its ultra-efficient fuel economy, there’s no wonder why this car was voted in the industry as the top of its class with its 50mpg super savings on petrol consumption.

It’s recommended that you go for the 2017 facelift model and you’ll get nice things like Bluetooth connectivity, enabling you to access your smartphone apps on a fairly large screen. Other features will be aircon, and a low-speed collision warning system.

Ford Fiesta

With all guides and used car recommendations, there has to be an overall winner and the champion out of all of our best used small car selection has to be the Ford Fiesta. There’s also a reason why the Ford Fiesta has been amongst the top selling new cars in the UK for decades.

Accept no less with this car, it’s spacious, fun, and an outstanding drive, very affordable to buy and run. The best ranges to look out for are the Zetec and Titanium models, so if you’re looking for a turbocharged 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol with some nice extras, definitely check out your vast options.
