Man sized small car

im thinking of cropping my corolla t-sport in for something less consuming on the fuel side. Ive had my t-sport for 5 & 1/2 years and only done 26K, i just dont use it. Work is 3miles away, supermarkets are next door, gym is only 4 miles away from my home so i just dont do any miles in it. People are expecting fuel to possibly reach £2 a litre by the start of next year so thinking of getting something alot smaller CC wise but dont want a ****ty looking girly car

what would you go for? Mini diesel?

    Fiesta diesel, should get one cheapish as the new one comes out later on in the year.
    Polo blue motion or whatever it called has great fuel efficiency, maybe a bit to girly though.

    im in a new 1.2 Fiesta Style at the moment while my t-sports in for repairs. It does run forever, got 115miles from £15 which is spot on, doesnt look too girly either, but, its extremely poor build quality, got funny noises coming from everywhere and its only done 12K.

    New one is meant to be really good. if you can hold out until october id suggest that. However the mazda 2 is based on it and that is out now, maybe worth a look. Probably cheaper than the ford version aswell.

    dont think id fit or look right in a Yaris lol. Excellent build quality tho so wouldnt count it out.

    Same with the Smart cars. Love the look of them but id look abit silly getting out of it being 6ft 2 and well built

    like the look of those Mazda 2s! Mazda is a Japanese company? Where are they built?

    I think they are produced in japan because they shifted production from spain to japan. would have to double check though. I have heard it is a realy good car. Looks good especially in the bright green!

    corsa's are excellent cars.

    the new suzuki swift is also a very nice car, a friend if mine bought a brand new one last week and i am most impressed by it.


    yeah they're alright too. Kinda look like a mini but slightly better. Mite be bit of a granny car tho
