    You don't need quick acceleration time. In normal traffic it's only important if you know how to use the performance of your vehicle. All cars on the market are quicker than necessary to perform well enough.

    Your max budget of £6,500 for what is seemingly just a little run around town is quite large. Also your requirements are so basic and vague, that in all honesty any small car/city car would suffice. We would probably need to know more background to narrow down options.

    Are you a new driver? If so look for cars with low insurance groups. Like the Skoda Citigo for example. It's a 1.0L engine however, so not particularly nippy, but it does the job you want well and economically. Or if you want something a bit more versatile consider a Ford Fiesta or VW Polo.

    Always buy cars for less than your budget, because any car needs some service work and repairs.

    I'm a new driver but i'd rather die than be seen in a 1 litre citigo, i'm looking around at quotes for an ibiza fr 1.4tsi at around £1400
