    Default Sold the Vec, what car to get next?? Ideally small diesel car

    Well, sold my pride and joy as it made no sense doing 80 miles a day when there is only me in it.

    Looking at a few options but the main one for me is a small diesel engine, ideally 1.6 diesel.

    Looking to spend around £5k and needs to have no more than 50k miles give or take a bit.

    I've been looking at:-

    Peugeot 207sw,
    Peugeot 207 hatchback (might be a tad too small though for family holidays etc)
    Mini Clubman (very expensive I feel for what they are and wont get one for anywhere near £5k)

    I could do with a few more ideas as I haven't really seen anything that jumps out at me yet

    cheers

    You will certainly struggle to find a diesel mini, with low mileage, for the money your looking to spend. I suppose thats the trouble with an In Vogue car.

    Ford Fusion? My Neighbour has one, does 20 miles a week around town and still gets 50mpg, could easily be a 65mpg car on the motorway. Not sure if his is the 1.6 or the 1.4.

    yeh, the mini is holding value well. Seen one with 56k miles for £8k and it has the chilli pack but just seems a fair old wedge of notes for such a small car....

    I'll have a look at the Fusion as well as the Astra but i don't know..... I think the 207 just seems to have the edge in looks etc

    just looking at a couple of sx4's but again... don't know
