Toyota iQ 1.0 VVT-i
Target Price 9178
If Zaki needs space for more than three, the iQ won't do it can really carry only three people at best. If he doesn't, the baby Toyota won't cost him a penny in car tax and should manage a whopping 65mpg.
Suzuki Swift 1.3 DDiS 5dr, '08/08
The Suzuki Swift has been around a few years, but it's still a lot of car for the money. This diesel version is in group four for insurance, and should average 61mpg. A tax disc costs just 35, too.
Nissan Note 1.5 dCi Acenta '08/08
A more spacious take on a supermini, and surprisingly classy inside. There are plenty of year-old Notes in Zaki's budget, and the 1.5-litre diesel version meet all his criteria. Our top choice.
