Ford Fiesta 3-door hatchback 1.4 automatic transmission, Trend
Ford genes: the assembled suspension helps the nimble Fiesta stay confident in the city stream. On the steering wheel understandable feedback, the machine willingly dives into turns. The interior is stylish and cozy, except that the central panel is overloaded with buttons. There are no complaints about the ergonomics of the driver's seat (plus - a large range of adjustments, good visibility). Demonstrating even traction, the 1.4 engine gets along well with the “automatic”.

Seat Ibiza 1.6 DSG, Reference
In the next attack on the Russian market, Seat is particularly reliant on the updated Ibiza, which sales started in April. Spectacular edges and tightly “taut” surfaces give the car traits of confidence and strength. The electro-hydraulic power steering got sporty precise settings, hence the sharp reactions and intelligible feedback.

Kia Rio hatchback 1.6 automatic transmission, Prestige
The 5-door hatchback Kia Rio recently debuted in Russia and has already managed to find a warm welcome. Compared with its closest relative Hyundai Solaris, this “Korean” looks more expressive, with aggressive notes. The interior is solid and austere. The driving habits of the two cars are very close.

Volkswagen Polo 3-door hatchback 1.4 DSG, Comfortline
Small but serious, Polo is very similar to the older brother of Golf not only in terms of face, ergonomics and quality of decoration in the best traditions of Volkswagen concern. The hatchback pleases with light, but at the same time accurate and informative steering and smooth running on roads with good asphalt. The front seats are very comfortable, but dictate a high landing, back to back. Twitchy switching "DSG" robot annoy in traffic jams.

Upgrade Path (Used)
Peugeot 407 2007 2.0 automatic transmission
Appearance Peugeot 407 on the verge of shocking, among the bright signs - aggressive mouth of the air intake, a long front overhang. Unlike the catchy exterior, the cozy interior is quite traditional, we should separately note the spacious back sofa. The character of the 407th is soft and seasoned, and a comfortable ride is combined with a fairly sensitive steering. However, the "machine" seems overly thoughtful.

2007 Toyota Avensis 1.8 automatic transmission
The main advantages of the previous generation Avensis are Japanese reliability (which the English assembly did not prevent), and a high level of comfort. Noise isolation and ergonomics deserve the kindest words, a virtually indestructible suspension will neutralize most of the flaws of the roadway. Toyota Avensis is resistant to corrosion. True, the car lacks honed driving habits, which are traditionally strong German competitors.

Skoda Superb 2007 1.8 automatic transmission
The previous generation Superb is based on the elongated VW Passat B5 platform. Hence the spaciousness of the cabin, especially on the second row - even behind a tall driver, a passenger can easily cross his legs. The 1.8 Turbo is enough for a rather heavy car. A close relationship with Passat is felt in the materials of the finish, thoughtful ergonomics. The Superb is slightly inferior to the “German” in handling, but it’s more comfortable in motion.

The Passat Generation B6 has exemplary ergonomics, a respectable and spacious interior, quality materials and fitting parts will suit the perfectionist. The trunk is almost suitcase-shaped and with a capacity of 565 VDA-liters - an excellent indicator for a family-class sedan. Passat is easy and flexible to drive; the steering wheel pleases with enviable information content. But keep in mind: gasoline engines, especially the 2.0 FSI, are picky about fuel quality.
