I am currently driving a 2004 Citroen Berlingo Desire 1.9 diesel. My husband now has a company car and we no longer need the space of the Berlingo. I generally use the car for supermarket and school runs. Can you recommend a replacement car of around the same value? My husband is currently looking at a Fiat Panda.

Unpretentious transport that offers stacks of room and a decent ride. Excellent value.
Compact and practical. Enjoyable and easy to drive. Narrow size makes it easy to park. Good space for those in the back.
