Long distance runner

Looking for a car that will last around five years, with an average running of 1500km every month.


I drive around 1500km a month, of which 60 percent is in the city and 40 percent on the highway. I’m looking for a car that’ll work for me for another five years or so. Should I choose the Honda City or the Renault Scala diesel?

The Scala is the better choice because for your running a diesel makes more sense. There are other reasons as well that favour the Renault. It is a better highway car than the City and will still be a current model after five years. The City is due to be replaced with an all-new model within a year.
