What's not faster than a Cygnet?

This will be a sensible/normal alternative to the Cooper S/500 Abarth kind of car. Though its a tad bigger than those, its still not as big as a Golf...

Here though we will only get the 5 doors.

I found the Fiesta to be disappointing when I drove them. The automatic transmission was quirky, with nice short shifts but a couple of vibrations during those shifts as well as flaring up the revs during shifts. The car felt heavy, though solid and well-built. Roomwise it was fine for a car of its size in terms of passenger space, but the Klingon forehead dash sort of made it feel a bit closed-in. We only got a sedan at the rental company I worked for, and the trunk was decently sized in terms of pure cubic capacity, but really poorly laid-out. Long and narrow, it looks difficult to really take advantage of it. On the upside, as I said, it felt more expensive than it was, and had confident, if not totally responsive, handling, a supple ride, and fuel economy was top-notch. Plus, I think it's a good-looking little car.

Nice for a premium feel in its segment, but not the standout I was hoping for.

Indeed a junior hatch. Here it will face stiff competition from the recently released Clio RS and 208 GTI, the not that new DS3 THP Sport and the frankly long in the tooth Ibiza Cupra, Polo GTI and Corsa OPC amongst others.

If the DS3 is any indication I'd go for the Peugeot.

Well, it's just a cheap, practical supermini with cheap, practical engines and a cheap practical interior.

I presume the last bit has been improved massively, because we had a loaner car from the previous generation ages ago (back when the Puma was still with us, what a car...) and it went well but certainly not a quality product.
