Dear What Car?

"I live in the middle of Manchester, and my current family car is just too big to park on the tight roads around where I live. I need something small and nimble, and preferably with an automatic gearbox, and all for less than £14,000, or £200 per month. I want something that's reasonably spacious, too, and with built-in sat-nav because I don't like the idea of using my phone's data."


Drives: Ford Focus

The brief:

  • Petrol engine
  • Built-in sat-nav
  • City or small car with an automatic gearbox
  • Reasonable amount of space
  • Less than £14,000, or £200 per month
