Honest John Awards 2018: Small hatchback category

A good small hatchback should offer five seats, plenty of interior flexibility and refinement that makes it suitable for motorway journeys - all in a footprint small enough for zipping through urban traffic. These five models make the shortlist for the Honest John Awards 2018. 

As with all award categories, this shortlist is based on user visits to pages at HonestJohn.co.uk - so they're chosen not by us, but based on how popular they are with you, our readers.

Ford Fiesta

The Fiesta is the UK's most popular car, and for very good reason. It's comfortable, great to drive, good looking and well priced. In short, it's the whole package. 

Honda Jazz

The Jazz is pure substance over style, with older drivers liking its practicality and high equipment levels. That said, the latest version is sharper than ever.  

Skoda Fabia

The underrated Skoda Fabia is one of the sharpest small hatchbacks on sale. All versions offer high levels of everyday practicality and a comfortable, refined drive.

Suzuki Swift

Great pricing and an economical range of engines make the Suzuki Swift a superb buy. Plus, it comes with generous levels of equipment as standard. 

Toyota Yaris

The latest Yaris is an easy car to recommend. Reliability and durability are two of the Yaris' biggest selling points, as well as offering plenty of space and comfort.
