Re: Young driver: Clio 2 or Megane 2?
Problem here is the purchase price ...Fords have a higher price (often unjustified) so to get a Ford in his budget is probably going to be older and higher milage meaning more wear and tear ...Other options include Fiat Panda (could be a wise choice as its insurance is cheaper and most are £30 road tax ), a Citreon C1, C2, C3 or C4
Hmm, I see where you're coming from, but you can pick up later Mk1 Focuses (Foci?) which i'd consider as roughly equivalent to a Mk2 Megane for a song, although the Megane continued a few years later then the Focus, so there may be an age trade off as you rightly mention.
To answer the question as it stands though, i'd choose the Clio. The MPG will be better by virtue of the weight, insurance should be less, handier for doing delivery work and easier to sell later on.
