What fun to drive car for £2500

I currently have a Fiat Punto GT which I have had since new and absolutely love. I like a car to have the power to get me out of trouble and to enjoy driving.

I like a car where I can feel the road, so nothing too smooth for its own good!

Right now I am thinking of letting my car go, even though i am very attached to it.

I need a car that is fun to drive, has some sportiness to it, good fuel economy and of course cheap insurance. I would also love a reliable car that does not cost me a arm and a leg to maintain.
