Background

If the Vauxhall Agila looks strangely familiar, that’s because it’s more or less identical to the Suzuki Splash. It’s tall roof makes it almost a mini-MPV in stance, but the shoebox-sized boot is a blow to its practicality credentials. The Agila went off UK sale in 2013.

60sec road test

That lofty roof makes it incredibly easy to clamber in, but the plasticky cabin will probably make you want to immediately step out again. Power comes from a 1.0-litre three-pot and 1.2-litre four, with handling tidy if uninvolving. Worth a look if you live in the city and regularly carry passengers, or if you have a bad back.
