Buying a used car to drive to Greece - what do you suggest?

We are travelling to Greece next year and I want to buy a used car - preferably economical - with a reasonable raised driver and passenger height and space that I can resell easily when we return six weeks later. What should we get?

Something cheap and basic, like a Dacia Logan MCV 1.5DCI: www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/dacia/logan-mcv-2013/ Or, for more ground clearance and a higher driving position, a Dacia Duster 1.5DCI: www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/dacia/duster-2012/
