What's the best small car for £3000?

After years of being spoilt with a company car my wife is leaving her job to become a full time student. What car would you recommend for a daily 16 mile road trip to the train station? She would like something funky and likes the look of the Fiat 500. I'm looking to spend around £3000.

£3000 gets you a 90,000 mile 2007 Fiat 500 and I don't recommend that. Safest bet is a Toyota Yaris 1.3.
