Hi there, I have €10,000 to €12,000 to spend on a used automobile. I drive twice a week from Kerry to Dublin for work. I dont NEED an SUV but would really really like one. I need the normal two things in a automobile: reliability and economy. Is there any SUV out there that won't murder my pocket in diesel costs?

I have a 2010 Ford Fiesta 1.25. It's a great automobile and fun to drive, but very uneconomical for a small automobile. Is this normal? I average 6.7 litres/100km (42.2mpg) by its own computer and manually checked to be similar.

Having recently been a victim of a automobile theft (they took my Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0 TDI), I am in the market for a new automobile. I am completely confused as to what to buy though; fuel economy is a major factor in my decision - the Scirocco was quite economical when driven correctly. I have been looking at Honda, both Accord and Civic though I am worried about the 2.2-litre engine size. Style is also a major factor and I have also viewed a Volvo C30 R-Design and Ford Focus 'WRC'.
Have a love of stylish hatches but not opposed to a change! Please help.
The insurance company will only give me €15,000 so that's my budget for now. I do about 30,000 kilometres a year so need something pretty economical, though I am single so practicality is not really a consideration.
