Luckily there are a host of small hatchbacks that straddle between these two markets, offering a few cheap thrills without going overboard...

2014 Renault Megane : Facelifted model manages just three stars in latest Euro NCAP crash testing

The facelifted 2014 Renault Megane small hatchback has scored just three stars in the latest round of Euro NCAP crash testing.
