Kia Picanto 1.0 1, £6635
Target Price £6336

Reversing sensors add £125 to the price, but the Picanto is still within Frank’s budget. It’s his best bet if he decides to buy new.


Fiat Panda 1.2 Dynamic Eco, ’09/59
Price £6800

A better bet than the Kia. Reversing sensors are an option, so won’t be fitted to many used Pandas, but Frank could always retrofit them.


Nissan Note 1.4 Visia, ’08/58
Price £7000

Cleverly designed and a cracking used buy. Reversing sensors were an option on the 2008 Note, but some cars were fitted with them.
