##Agila--left##WHEN Vauxhall wanted to expand into the city car segment, it acquired a stake in Suzuki and re-engineered the Japanese firm's Wagon R model to create the Agila. It means Vauxhall has another range in its extensive line-up, positioned below the Corsa in both size and price.The Agila is a compact five-door 'city' hatchback offering a choice of 1.0-litre three cylinder or 1.2-litre four cylinder petrol engines from the Corsa, with 57bhp and 74bhp respectively. It's hardly going to set the world on fire performance-wise, but as a versatile city car the Agila has all it needs.

The Agila starts from just £6,995 for the 1.0i 12v model, while the 1.2i tested here costs £7,450 on the road. At this price, there are plenty of rivals for the Agila, including the Daewoo Matiz 5dr (from £6,595) and Daihatsu Cuore 5dr (from £7,345).
