Hi All

I am looking at new cars after my Wifes Grand Scenic needed a ABS computer for the MOT.

The Sandero caught my eye but I think I will hold out for a Logan :)

As I am a very sad person a knocked up a quick spreadsheet to compare the running costs of the engine options.

I know cost is not everything but it is a big factor if you are buying a bargain car.

It is located here if you would like to play. Inputting different annual mileage and fuel costs will predict how long it will take to pay back the extra spent on a "better" engine.

Depending on your yearly mileage the payback point will change because the road tax differences affect it as well. If I got bored and there were significant differences I could add in service costs.

What is interesting is that at 10K a year the mid range 4x2 Duster catches the cheaper car at 4.5 years

The Sandero catches up in year 3 & 4 respectively for the same spec car so if you intend to keep them a while and do some good miles and of course have the cash up front if is worth coughing up for the "better" engines
