Mitsubishi i (2007–2011)

What's good

Proper four-seater city car with very tight turning circle.

What to watch out for

Overwhelmed by motorways.

Several complaints of only 34 - 38mpg, well below official figures.

Light build seems to make them rust prone at the front bonnet edge and rerar wings after 8-9 years.
