Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Volkswagen Beetle hatchback?

For those in the market for a retro set of wheels, then look no further than the Mini. Just like the Beetle, it has a smallish boot and not a huge amount of space for those in the back. But it’s fine up front and you’re treated to a nicely finished dashboard with a really great infotainment system. On top of that, it drives with alacrity and every engine is a peach.

The Citroën DS3 and later DS 3 have value on their side and low running costs in diesel form. It’s nothing special to drive, though, unless you go for the sportier racing version.
