Looking to get a small car to be used as the second 'occasional' car.
Needs to be 5 door, have a decent-sized boot, cheap to run, insure, maintain etc. It should also fare reasonably well on NCAP ratings as it will sometimes be used for ferrying our kids around and my wife worries about this sort of thing.
All I can think of is the Ford Fusion but is there anything else worthy of consideration?
Got a budget of MAX £2k - but would prefer £1.5k
Alternatively, can you convince me that a Ford Puma will be suitable despite it only having three doors...
