Which small car for infrequent use?

Can you recommend the best car for infrequent use? I currently own a 2010 1.6 SEAT Leon, but as I now bus it to work I don't need a diesel engine and it's gathering dust in the driveway weekdays. I just need something for pottering around at the weekend and any holidays. I'm thinking Nissan Micra, Hyundai i10/i20, Ford Fiesta. Don't need a huge car as there's only two of us. Not looking for something massively pricey, but with trade-in perhaps a 151 or 161 model.

Hi Stephen,

The best car for this job sounds to me like a Toyota Yaris. No, it’s not exciting, nor is it thrilling to drive, but it’s among the most reliable cars you can buy. Being as regular use is what keeps a car reliable (along with proper servicing) you’ll want to maximise reliability considering that the car will be left sitting for long periods.
