Budget 7000
Name Liz Day
Age 40
Drives Kia Sportage
Annual mileage 10,000
My commute is through country lanes, so a higher car would be an advantage to see over hedges. Good boot space for camping trips is a must and occasionally I need to take five people. Low fuel bills would be useful.
New
Fiat Panda
1.2 Active, 8155
Target Price 7387
Using the Target Price as a starting point, the Panda could be just within Lizs grasp. Itll average 56.5mpg and theres enough space for luggage or people. It doesnt have the loftiest driving position, though.
Or try a Chevrolet Spark 1.0, 7215
Nearly new
Fiat Qubo
1.3 Multijet Active
09/09, 6890
The Qubos odd looks hide a refined and spacious interior. Liz will have plenty of room for everyone (and their kit) and official economy is 64.2mpg. The seat is a bit higher than a normal superminis, too.
Or try a... Nissan Note 1.4 Visia, 10/10, 7000
Used car
Mercedes-Benz A-Class
A160 CDI Classic SE 5dr,
07/57 6995
The mini-Merc combines a higher seating position than normal with a frugal diesel engine. The Tardis-like interior has plenty of room for people or camping equipment.
Or try a Nissan Qashqai 1.6 Visia,
