Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content


Waaaah. Suggest me a car.


Recommended Posts

Wife suggests we downsize from 2 to 1 cars. So ten grand budget for straight swap.

2009 Lexus GS450h. I love everything about it EXCEPT woeful boot. However it is very big.

2016 Smart for two. Great economy and a super town car.

We only really NEED a big car a few times a year.

Small hatchback perhaps. CT200h maybe, but my little turbo Smart is probably faster.

GS460 same car, not quite as quick or fuel efficient but probably more fun with a much bigger boot.🙂

The car that does everything is the RX.

Took her to look at a ct200h yesterday. Even that was deemed too big!

Looking at hot hatches now. 4m length maximum.

 

Yaris

MIL has a Yaris, so could not bear having the same car, especially as she lives next door!

Think of the serious brownie points that could be earned!!  😁

Again. Too long!

Looks like it will be latest gen Yaris Hybrid.

Less than two years old, less than 2000 miles. Too much of a bargain to pass by!!!!

I feel like I’m going to get shouted at here…but have you considered a Dacia Sandero? The latest one - based on a quick look a few months ago and the reviews - is well worth consideration. 

I’ll get my coat…

If the is250 is too long then there's only one other car. The mighty Ford Fiesta. Its the only small car I'd have.

Ended up getting a Jazz.

60+ genuine mpg. 1.5litre Sport with a tiny s.

Like a small van with the seats down. Flappy paddle  gearbox if you like! Lots of tech for a tiny car and actually built in Japan. Main thing is it is not German nor DSG.

But is it an i-shift ?

Can’t really go wrong with a Honda. Excellent choice imho.
