I only drive in town most of the time, so a small petrol engin will be fine. Air-con and and an iPod connector would be nice.'

Fiat recently fitted a stop/start system to its funky 500. The result? More miles per gallon and less CO2.
It's pricier than the standard model but gets extras such as air-con and a USB port for music lovers.
Prices of our favourite supermini and current What Car? Car of the Year have fallen below £10k.
It isn't as green as the Fiat, but it is much more practical than both and has air-con and a USB port.
It's hugely desirable, so should hold its value better than the Ford or Fiat. The Mini isn't big, but it is fairly green, emitting only 128g/km of CO2.
Pepper Pack models come with air-con and a USB port.
