1. Honda Jazz Hatchback
The Honda Jazz is the simplest car in supermini category. It has been on the market since 2014 but it is still a strong opponent for the newer model such as Nissan Note and Ford Fiesta. The flexible interior make the Jazz is an alternative too, for supermini MPV; Vauxhall Meriva and Ford B-Max.

4. Audi Q3 SUV
The model is quite similar with other Audi model; it has a first class, great interior. Although it wasn’t very different in size with Volkswagon Golf, it has wider space inside.
