If you are looking to buy a decent used car this year then you have come to the right place. What we have done here is put together a list of the best used cars that you may want to consider when making a purchase in the coming year. This list not only includes the make and model of the recommended vehicles, but also the price range you can expect to pay..
The 2011 Kia Picanto 1.01.3 door is the second generation and whilst maintaining its value for money, it also comes with a much higher feel of quality about it. As well as being very affordable they also come with Kia’s long term warranty in place. You should expect to pay about £4,500 for a decent model.
Although a bit pricey even now, the Volkswagen Up! 1.0 Take Up will set you back around £6,300, but this city car brings with it a big car feel. This maybe a bit pricey but it does tend to hold its value well, if and when you decide to sell it.
The 2011 Audi A1 1.2 Fsi Sport 3 door is our pick as one of the best superminis around at the moment. The A1 is one of the must have superminis at the present time, and it holds its sale value strongly. The A1 incorporates premium quality, and style that is hard to beat, but expect to pay £9,500 – £12,000 for it.
The 2009 Ford Fiesta 1.6 TDCi Zetec 5 door is a great choice for most families. This gives the agility needed for city driving, but also has great comfort for those longer journeys. This 5 door version also gives an added practicality to the car. Priced between £4,500 and £9,000 depending on condition, this makes it an affordable option.
With a price tag of £3,000 – £8,000 the 2009 Hyundai i30 1.6 CRDi Premium hatchback will not break your bank account. However if you only drive shorter distances you may want to consider getting a petrol engine version of this car.
Mention owning a Mazda to most people and they will automatically think of a sports car, but the 2010 Mazda3 2.2D Sports 5 door is a great family car. With Mazda’s reputation for reliability, and with great road handling the Mazda 3 is good value for money at just £5,500 – £10,000.
With a price range of £5,000 – £14,000 the 2011 Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer 2.0 CDTi Sri has come under criticism from some. However it offers lots of interior space and comfort making it ideal for a growing family.
The 2011 Volvo V60 D2 R-Design will set you back about £14,500, but it is an ideal family car. With its diesel engine you can keep the fuel costs down, but more importantly the V60 comes with the usual high standard of safety features that we all associate with the Volvo’s.
If you are looking to purchase a used car in 2014 we hope that this short list of what’s available to you has been of some use.
