I want a cheap to run car for short distance driving - what do you recommend?

I work in the community and do a lot of short distance driving. I'm looking for a car that is good on petrol and cheap to run with regards to car tax and insurance. What car do you suggest?

Asked on by

We'd recommend a Kia Picanto - it comes with a generous seven-year warranty and will be extremely cheap to run. If you'd prefer a bit more space, look at the Suzuki Swift.
