Right, I'm looking to buy a supermini in the £7000-£9000 range. Here are my options: Suzuki Swift (1.3 GL, new). Tried it and loved it, with a superb price tag of £7300. Great, right? Vauxhall Corsa (1.4, new). More pricey new model, but is getting great reviews this year. On a lot of shortlists for COTY 2007. £8500 Mini One Convertable (1.6, used). This only has 1200 miles on the clock over 3 years, is mint condition, and looks an absolute steal at £8500. Insurance is as insane as ever, but i'm getting the same sort of quote for all three cars. Thanks!
