Ford Puma

One of the more recent cars featured here is Ford’s Puma, based around the MkIV Fiesta and available with a choice of 1.4- to 1.7-litre powerplants developing 90 to 123bhp. Those might not sound like exciting outputs, but in a car that’s relatively lightweight and which boasts tenacious grip, it’s easy to have fun.

Get a well-tuned Puma on a twisting A-road and you’ll realise its appeal, so sharp is its handling and steering. Best news though, is its value – with the last cars topping out at £2000 and MoT’d runners from £500. Just watch the rust.
