Each car was assessed in a variety of areas, including reliability, build quality, fuel economy, repair costs and performance. Ride comfort, handling, ease of driving, practicality and technology were also considered, as well as safety.

Ford Ka

Overall rating: 77.17%

If there’s one area that lets the Ford Ka down badly, it’s fuel economy. It shares the worst score of any car in the bottom 10 with the Renault Laguna. This means the little Ford has the dubious honour of recording the worst overall result in our 2017 Honest John Satisfaction Index.

In other areas, owners like the Ka for its ease of driving and handling, but comfort comes up short and build quality is among the worst in this bottom 10. Still, reliability and practicality are on a par with other small cars.
