It's no stunner, but the Avensis ticks all of Shirley's boxes and is fine value for money.
This TR model gets plenty of standard equipment and the 2.0-litre diesel engine pumps out just 135g/km of CO2.
Shirley could afford something swankier if she buys nearly new. The 320d isn't just the best car in its class, it's also surprisingly green – it puffs out only 128g/km of CO2.
ES trim gets all the must-haves.
It's bigger than the 3 Series, but has the same great engine. Despite its size, the 520d is still fairly green – it emits just 136g/km of CO2.
It's also great to drive and offers top-notch refinement.
