Mitsubishi Colt or Toyota Yaris?

Just looking for advice on which is the best small automatic car. My wife is looking at a Mitsubishi Colt versus a Toyota Yaris. I've heard some bad reports on the Yaris automatic and I am wondering if these are unfounded. She currently has a Nissan Micra 1.2 Auto.

Hi Tom,

Is this a new or used car you would be buying? A new Toyota Yaris comes with the MultiMode transmission and a 1.3-litre VVTi petrol engine, which will cost you €18,285.

A Mitsubishi Colt automatic with a 1.3-litre engine will cost you €15,450 and that is quite a bit less. 

A Ford Fiesta 1.4 Style Auto would come in at €18,735 and this would be a really nice car. 

The best bet for us would be a Hyundai i20 1.4 Deluxe Auto, which comes in at €16,995 and that is a super little car. If it is a straight choice between the Yaris and Colt I think I'd save the €2,835 and have the Colt. 

Come back to us if you're buying second-hand, as the story may be a different one.
