The Savvy, Proton's first five door UK city car, is to go on sale in the UK in January at a price of £6995 in Style trim, pitching it directly at the Fiat Panda 1.2 Dynamic and Kia Picanto 1.1 LX. A base model, dubbed Street, will arrive a month later in February for £5995.

The Savvy sports a 1.2-litre engine available with either manual or automated manual transmission. Split seats in the rear are fully foldable to give a maximum boot capacity of 909 litres. Both models include a CD player, reverse parking sensors and ABS as standard, while the Style model adds air conditioning and alloy wheels.

Driven this week

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
