Help me choose a car

I AM a 25-year-old woman who wants to buy a car - either a small, brand new one or a bigger, second-hand model.

I AM a 25-year-old woman who wants to buy a car - either a small, brand new one or a bigger, second-hand model.

I can afford a monthly payment of R3000, insurance included. I am looking for a car that is light on fuel and economical to service and maintain.

For the small car I was thinking of a new Yaris, Polo Vivo and so on and for the bigger one I was thinking of a used Golf 4 GTI, Ford Focus, Mazda 3 and so on.

I would like to hear your views on which of the vehicles mentioned I should go for.
