Toyota Avensis 2.0 D-4D TR
Price: 19,255
Target Price: 17,884

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.

BMW 320d ES, '08/58
Price: 19,750

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.

BMW 520d SE, '07/57
Price: 18,800

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.
