CH-R/ Corolla Sport you pay only for the car on the permit

Only issue rear seat space which will not be a priority for you

The new Corolla Sedan and Corolla Touring wagon with the 1.2L  would also be an option but those come with only a 6MT. THe Hybrid 1.8 and Gasoline 1.8L will attract taxes.

Well you have the many traditional options for that price range.

Resalable depends on how long you plan to keep it.

If its a few years, I would stick to Toyota and avoid Hybrids.

Otherwise if you want to be adventurous,

Thank you kush.. the chr was already on my radar .. Thanks to you I will now look into corolla sport .. me and my wife are a little on the hefty side (6" 90 kg ,5'8" 80 kg ,, but yeah no kids yet.. So an SUV that has good shot gun space,, is much valued.. And yes.. The back seats.. Not so much)

Interesting, I guess this is the first MT from a regular Toyota model in a long time?

Hmmm...good point...actually...the Axios and Vitzies have always had a MT variant :) Just that normal people did not buy them. They were mostly bought by fleet owners, people who were going to mod it, etc...

Sweet spot for the permit is 1200cc petrol or 1500cc hybrid hence the 3008/5008/CH-R/ Corolla Sport or Aqua/ Axio/ Fit/ Grace/ Vezel/ or New Insight (expensive though) 

1300-1500 you get a good choice from the likes of Civic/ CRV/ Audi../ BMW.. / Mercs although personally you will not benifit much unless you're using your own permit

I think it is a good option, has a very good following in UK

In SL context since it is a "Nissan" it will be looked down upon by so so ""Toyota/ Honda"" clan.

In fact I was considering this for my self then i decided on the Corolla Sport we did not want two SUVs in the family.

New face lifted comes with 1.3L engine, plus you will get the warranty and technical support of the agent.

And will be within your budget
