Car time...

My parents have a new car. It is lovely. It is big and grunty and has turbo, and is freakishly fuel efficient.

Our car is pretty and whizzy and has a nice small engine and is freakishly fuel inefficient.

Why? Why? Why?

So now we want a new one, nice and fuel efficient, but pretty and whizzy at the same time. Probably about 6 years old would fit the profile. Any recommendations?

Second-hand Prius.
Or
Toyota Corolla

Lordy, I have to admit I had no idea those hybrid cars had been running for so long. Still a bit pricey for us I think.

I can recommend a Toyota Corolla

SO what have your parents got?
(we're also in the market for a whizzy and stylish yet economical new motor)...

Ford Ka, if you can get them in NZ.

Small, but nippy, and very efficient - fill up the tank and forget about it for a while, can typically do 500km on a full (32litre tank). Looks nice too, and parts are usually cheap.
