What Car? Personal Shopper

Dear What Car?,

I'm in need of a new city car, and having read lots of reviews, I'm still in need of some help. I need the driver's seat to be high so that I can get in and out easily, plus I'd like lightweight steering and an automatic gearbox. I'd like a petrol engine, too, and low road tax. Please can you suggest some options? I have around £10,000 to spend.

Thank you,


The brief

  • City car with a petrol engine
  • Automatic gearbox
  • High seating position
