Cute eco city car

Cute eco city car
Name: Barbara: Wright
Age: 52
Drives: Fiat Punto
Budget: 10,000
Wants: 'A small, eco-friendly car that looks cute.

I only drive in town most of the time, so a small petrol engin will be fine. Air-con and and an iPod connector would be nice.'

 Fiat 500 1.2 Stop&Start
Price: 9700
Target Price: 9700

Fiat recently fitted a stop/start system to its funky 500. The result? More miles per gallon and less CO2.

It's pricier than the standard model but gets extras such as air-con and a USB port for music lovers.

 FORD Fiesta 1.25i 82 Zetec 3dr, '09/58
Price: 10,000

Prices of our favourite supermini and current What Car? Car of the Year have fallen below 10k.

It isn't as green as the Fiat, but it is much more practical than both and has air-con and a USB port.

 Mini One 1.4 Pepper Pack, '07/07
Price: 9550

It's hugely desirable, so should hold its value better than the Ford or Fiat. The Mini isn't big, but it is fairly green, emitting only 128g/km of CO2.

Pepper Pack models come with air-con and a USB port.
