1998 Peugeot 306
A bargain French family hatchback and the first ever diesel on the Life On Cars fleet.
2001 Ford Mondeo
The first Ford on the fleet was brilliant and lavishly equipped, but thanks to an errant BMW was short-lived.
1990 Mazda MX-5
Sports car fun with Japanese reliability – Life On Cars took on what is arguably a modern classic in the form of this pretty roadster.
1992 Mini Sprite
Fast, great fun to drive and above all reliable! How all Minis should be.
1995 Rover 214SEi
Refined, restrained and unmistakably British… with a Honda inflection, of course. Oh, and this leather-seated mini limo cost just £300.
1972 MGB GT
Abingdon-crafted classic car companion of eight years. Now with better funded owner…
1995 Renault 5
Quite possibly the best value car in the world, if not exactly a hot hatch. Endless reliability for just £100.
1983 Mini Mayfair
A classic piece of British engineering and an absolute delight to drive – when it worked.
