Drives Vauxhall Zafira
Wants: 'A big boot, low running costs and decent reliability. I do about 10k miles a year, so I'm not sure if petrol or diesel is better.
I'm a bit of a badge snob, too!'

Audi A6 Avant 2.0 TDIe, '08/58
This 136bhp diesel A6 is designed to be green rather than gutsy. On the plus side, it's cheap and very economical, and has the classy badge that Gillian's after. The downside is sluggish performance.
Volvo V70 2.0D SE, '08/08
Gillian won't be doing high mileages, but we'd still go diesel in the case of the Volvo. It will hold its value better than the petrol versions, and does loads more miles to the gallon. The V70's boot is vast, too.
