I am trying to decide between a Toyota Avensis, Diesel and a Vauxhall Vectra, Petrol. Any thoughts?

I am trying to decide between a Toyota Avensis 2.0D-4D T Spirit (Turbo Diesel) - 2005 plate, 87,000 and a Vauxhall Vectra 2.2i SXI - 2005 plate, Petrol 51,000. Both cars are in excellent condition with FSH and selling for £3.9k and £3k respectively. We only do 8500 miles per annum so a lot of town driving with a few longer trips thrown in. Big boot important due to occupation. Any thoughts?

I think on choosing between these cars it comes down to personal choice. Which car are you most comfortable in? You don’t say whether your 8,500 miles pa are mainly long distance or local trips. If you tend to do more local trips you are perhaps better off going with the petrol Vectra, whereas if you do more motorway miles than the diesel Avensis is perhaps the best choice.
