So a supermini is enough?
Modern superminis are more than capable of doing long distances, they feel fine on the motorway/main arterial routes and they have the toys/build quality to last the distance. It all depends on your own tastes as to what is most important – if you want to accelerate fast, hp is going to be of more interest than l/km, but in reality if you’re buying a supermini I’d aim at the most economical one you can find. It’s a runaround, at the end of the day, even with the long trips thrown in, so why should it cost you extra cash to keep it running?
