Currently drive a 07 Citroen Picasso on 60k miles. Runs well and has more than enough space for me, the mrs, 2 kids and a bike and a dog. It is spacious, easy to drive, unexciting and has piss handling.
I am using it most of the time to commute to work, 45 miles each way, pretty much all motorway and getting ~40mpg when I'm trying.
Money is tight just now so have nothing to spend other than what I could get for the Picasso(~£2.5k). Is there a better car out there for me that will save me spending so much on fuel all the time(almost £300/month to commute) and still fulfil the requirements of family and bike carrying?
