What's the best car for a stand-up comedian who travels around the country?

My son travels all around the country with his job as a stand-up comedian. His faithful 2003 Volkswagen Golf has now done 210,000 miles, but is getting ready for retirement. What car of similar size would you recommend to replace it? Important factors being: safety, reliability, comfort and economy. The annual mileage and economy suggest diesel. But is there a risk of diesels being banned from entering some cities in the near future?

While some cities across Europe are banning older diesels, I don't think that'll stretch to more modern, efficient diesels in the near future. Take a look at the Honda Civic. The i-DTEC diesel engine in the current model is efficient and very refined. It will be reliable, too.

Bigger than previous Civic. Independent rear suspension means better ride and handling. New 1.0 VTEC turbo petrol is excellent while i-DTEC diesel is very refined.
