Which small used car? A 2006 Citroen C3 1.4 Desire or 2004 Toyota Corolla 1.6 VVT-i T2?

Not sure which of these two cars I should buy. The 2006 citroen C3 1.4 Desire petrol, manual has 7,000 miles on the clock. The 2004 Toyota Corolla 1.6 VVT-iT2 petrol has 40,000 miles on the clock. I will travel about 15,000 per year on A-roads, city and motorway. I want the safest most reliable car that will last me the most number of years. I realise the C3 will be more economical. Toyota no longer make Corolla so will I get spare parts? Both cars cost £5000. Which car should I get?
The Corolla. But both cars now need a fresh timing belt.
