What's the best small car for £2500?

I'm seeking a used small car to replace an ageing Nissan Micra. Preferably one that doesn't go wrong very often and is low cost to fix when it does. What models do you suggest?

A Toyota Yaris would be a sensible choice, provided you stay away from the MMT automatic gearbox. I'd also consider a Ford Fiesta with the robust 1.25-litre petrol engine or a Honda Jazz.
