What sporty small car do you suggest for around £10k?

My wife has a Skoda FabIa Monte Carlo 1.2 TSI. She wants to hand it back and purchase something more sporty for around £10K. Her annual mileage is around 10,000. We wonder what you would suggest?

A Suzuki Swift Sport would be a fun, sporty option that should also be relatively cheap to run and very reliable. Your budget will buy a 2016 model. Alternatively, consider a SEAT Ibiza FR or - if practicality isn't an important factor - a Mazda MX-5.
