Because it's not only the price, but running it as well. I'm going to be doing a lot of motorway and between 25.000 and 30.000km a year at least.

And the more I can get it under 25 grand the better.

If I didn't have those constraints, it wouldn't be a diesel. Or front wheel drive. Or even a four seater...

What about Foci, Meganes, or Giuliettas?

Or you could wait and fork over an extra five thou for a GT86/BRZ and get all kinds of horrible mileage figures.
I don't like the new Focus.

The Megane is only available with a brand new 1.6dCi 130bhp (no thanks) or a 160bhp 2.0dCi (too much unfortunately).

And an Alfa diesel is just a no. Altough I like the new Giulietta. Maybe I should get a look. But I'm still not convinced by the idea of a diesel Alfa...

There's also the option of the diesel Cruze (163bhp) which is a bargain (17-18 grand), but I'm not too convinced by it.
Lack of charisma can be fatal.
Visca Catalunya!
