Tell me about DPFs and short journeys...

How far do you need to drive a Hyundai i30 to help the diesel particulate filter regenerate, and how often does it perform this action? If you only do mainly short journeys are you better of with a petrol engine?

Which new automobiles are easy to get into?

I have a bad back and I find it very difficult getting into small automobiles like the Volkswagen Polo/Golf etc. I am looking to buy a new automobile/SUV that will be doing mostly urban/extra urban driving. I know it's a tough ask, but I am looking for something that is easy to get into and that will return decent mpg.

Which new automobile for 10,000km a year?

I have a BMW 520i (manual, petrol) since 1998 and it has served me well. I am considering changing to a new automobile and am thinking about the following: BMW 3 Series GT, Lexus IS or the Volvo V40. I have driven my wife's automobile, a 2011 Toyota Prius 1.8 and like the automatic. I am keen on having a rear camera and parking sensors, plus Bluetooth, leather upholstery, satnav, metallic paint, cruise control and climate control. I do about 10,000km per year.

Can you please advise what you would think might suit my needs.
