Most economical estate car
I am looking to purchase an estate car. It will be used as a business car and i'll be travelling about 250 miles a week. I need a bit of comfort, plenty of load carrying for fragile items, to include space for a small dog. Space and low running costs are top priority, but a bit of comfort is essential. Budget max of £7,000.

Focus or Astra estate. Choose diesel for low fuel costs but very high repair costs, or petrol for high fuel costs but very low repair costs.
