Low fuss, low cost city hatchbacks?

Asked by David

I am looking to buy a low kilometer small or city hatchback for my daughter to drive around Sydney. I would like to pay $10-12,000, I am thinking 2011-2013, and would like electronic stability control. Which brand and model would you recommend?

For reliability and no-fuss driving it's best to go for an Asian brand rather than a European one. Euros can be expensive, particularly when they get older. I would suggest a 2013 Kia Rio or Hyundai i30, both are good cars, both have electronic stability control and fit within your budget.
