What fun car with four seats can I get for around £17,000?

I am looking to buy a car between £15k and £17k that's fun to drive, sporty, good looking and practical with four seats. Any suggestions?

A BMW 3 Series might be a good option. It's great to drive and there's a strong range of engines available. Your budget will get you a 320i from 2016, or a slightly older more powerful model. Alternatively, consider a hot hatch like a BMW M135i or Volkswagen Golf GTI.
