New Motability car - what to pick?

Advice on a small auto through Motability. I was thinking of Fiat this time or Mitsubishi.

Some drivers don't get on with FIAT's Dualogic automated manual transmission. The Mitsubishi Colt also has an automated manual, not a true automatic. I think you'd be best off with a Honda Jazz CVT-7. Other possibilities: Hyundai ix20 1.6 auto or KIA Venga 1.6 auto. If you want smaller, then a KIA Picanto 1.2 auto or a Hyundai i10 1.2 auto.
