Response to Ford fiesta
A Daihatsu copen. It's a laugh and a half and unlike a smart roadster, it has a proper engine and gearbox. If you're in the market for a fun 2-seater, they are definately worth a look.
The 900 triple was considered to be fairly nippy and good fun. The 1200 four goes like a motorbike. I've tried to make it break traction on roundabouts but it refuses to, it just corners like a go-kart.
Automatic hard-top retracts quick enough to do it between a light change and because it folds the roof up into the boot space, there's plenty of luggage space when the roof is up (and about enough room for a bag of crisps if it's down).
Fuel consumption... well more than her fiesta was because you're more inclined to boot it everywhere you go. Probably less if driven sensibly.
