Can you recommend a small car with robust suspension?

I prefer a stiffer suspension to improve handling but in my part of the world there are many pot holes and speed bumps which over the years has led to expensive repairs. Given that I am not going up market for an active suspension and only need a small car, 1.2 or 1.4 litre, what would you recommend as having the most robust suspension?

A Volkswagen Polo strikes a pretty good balance in the suspension department, especially if you find one with relatively small alloy wheels (and chunky tyres). Also consider a Honda Jazz or the very soft Citroen C3.
