The old Suzuki Wagon R and Vauxhall Agila were archetypal old people's cars. They had upright seats and were easy to get in and out of, but looked like shoeboxes on wheels. Consequently, very few people who weren't getting on a bit bought them.

Then, in 2008, Suzuki and Vauxhall ditched their square cars for squares and launched the Splash and new Agila. Possibly even taller than their predecessors, but at least with a bit of style and design flair about them.

Now, with everyone watching the pennies, Suzuki has introduced a 119g/km, £35 tax version of its Splash, as well as the £35 tax 1.3 diesel and the £120 tax 1.2 and 1.2 auto.

It hasn't thrown away any worthwhile spec apart from the alloy wheels, and even the base 1.0GLS has aircon, electric front windows, a dash-top rev counter in a pod, and 60/40 rear seats that neatly fold flat in one easy movement.
