So, long story short, work are getting rid of the pool car I used for client trips and nursery runs on the way to said client trips, because covid and not really getting use...sooo I need a hatchback to get me from A-B for work (approx 15 miles each way mostly motorway and a roads) with the occasional stop off at nursery on the way. Oh and the odd trip to the train station (40 mile round trip)
my wish list is;
- has to have 5 seats and 5 doors (before mx5 gets suggested
) because car seat and possibly dog in boot on occasion too
- I’d like it to be a bit of fun if possible. My wife is all ‘just get a 1.0L’...no. I’m not talking hot hatch levels of fun (although that would be nice), but something with a bit of nip whilst still not drinking petrol like it’s on a Friday night binge after lockdown would be nice.
- budget wise. We aren’t sure really. I think it would either be, cheap, high mileage banger unlikely to give too many/any expensive issues during ownership £2k or less...
up to 8k for something with less miles/age to have it last a bit longer. Open to advice/opinion on either route
size wise, fiesta/polo or bigger. As an Up/fox/citigo type thing is just a bit small.
