    My recommendation would be a Peugeot 307 diesel. Either the 1.6 HDI if you're after a fairly new one, or a 2.0 HDI if its a little older. Both offer a similar power output, although I expect the 1.6 will be in the cheaper tax bracket. You'd have no bother getting 60 mpg from them, and they're incredibly comfortable - especially if you get an LX model with the front armrests.

    Right here is an update:

    We went and had a look at a '60 plate 207 1.6HDI 92 Sport at the weekend, very nice car with a lot of kit included: Dimming mirror, auto lights, Bluetooth, USB, 3.5mm jack, climate control, 16" Alloys, all the usual gimmicks.
    Hopefully going for a test drive of it on Saturday so could be good.

    The Peugeot dealer offered us 5700 part ex on the 107 too which is a lot more than I expected.

    that sounds like a good deal, especially with that trade in price. The problem with 16" wheels is getting tyres, as they are not a common size, we have the problem with the fiat, budget tyres are virtually non existant (in sheffield anyway) and premiums are way over priced

    How much is the 207 up for? Sounds like a prertty good trade-in price though.

    More specifically, the list price is 10995, it's an ex demo car used by the reps. Has 10,000 miles on it which is high for a demo car registered in September 2010 but I've raised the concern with the dealer and I think it could be used to push for another 300 on the 107 trade in or the money off of the list price.

    The same car (with similar kit) new is about 14,000 ish.

    I've got a Toyota iQ, not necessarily cheap exactly but even with a petrol engine and automatic gearing I average around 60 mpg when I'm not putting any effort into driving efficiently. My highest average for one week was 72 mpg. It's also very comfortable to drive, and since it's small easy to park as well. The only drawback is that while it does have four seats, it's basically a two-seater (no long trips with anyone in the back if they're attached to their legs).

    I do like the iQ's but I can never get one, just because all the Domino's places here use them for deliveries! Every time I see one it's branded with Dominoes stickers.
