Question: Which 1.4-litre is best?

I'm looking to buy a 1.4 that's newer than 2007 I'm wondering which is best.. My budget is €5000 Something like a Seat Leon

Hi Brian,

The Leon is a very good choice — nice to drive and very reliable, but you might find that the old 1.4 engine is a bit underpowered, and that’s true for most 1.4 mid-size hatchbacks. Worth looking at a Toyota Auris 1.4 or 1.33 VVTi too (reliable and those are cracking engines) or a Honda Civic 1.4, which has a terrific engine and is hugely reliable.
