Best used cars of 2014 so far…Back

We’re well into 2014, so we thought it might be a good time to take a look at some of the used cars that have proved popular during the first half or this year and beyond. Choosing second-hand cars that are highly sought-after is a good way of saving you money at resale, after all, the more buyers are prepared to pay for a particular model, the better chance you have of getting a good price for your used one.

Take a look below at Trusted Dealers’ top used car picks of 2014 so far:

SkodaCitigoBest used city car: Skoda Citigo (Priced from £6250)

If you’re looking for a city car with strong credentials you can’t go far wrong with the Skoda Citigo. It’s cheaper than the VW up! and has better looks than the SEAT Mii, yet it shares the same engine as both cars. Not only does the Citigo have a great engine line-up, its spacious inside and offers a decent sized boot too. Furthermore, it holds its value well at resale – what more do you need to know?

FordFiestaBest used supermini: Ford Fiesta (Priced from £1890)

The Ford Fiesta is the ultimate all-rounder when it comes to style, performance and good value for money. In fact, it pretty much excels in all areas, which is why it has remained the most popular car amongst UK buyers for several years. No matter which engine you choose, the Fiesta is lively and there are plenty of trims available to cater to your every need when it comes to equipment. The Fiesta is not only great to drive but its build quality remains as sound as when the first generation of Fiesta was built almost 40 years ago – a testament to Ford’s hard work and dedication to produced quite simply the best car around.

VWGolfBest used small family car: VW Golf (Priced from £4,000)

The VW Golf has always been an excellent choice of second-hand car, ever since it appeared on Britain’s roads 40 years ago. Mainly because everything that was special about the original model, and which made it so popular with buyers across the country, is still evident in today’s cars. Excellent build quality, coupled with a simple, but stylish cabin and excellent refinement, are some of the features which we love about the Golf, not to mention the reliable badge which helps ensure residual values remain strong – what’s not to like?

VIBest used family car: Vauxhall Insignia (Priced from £5,200)

For a used car that offers plenty of value for money, there is none better than the Vauxhall Insignia. Launched six years ago it was crowned the European Car of the Year shortly afterwards in 2009. It offers a high-quality cabin and plenty of space for a family to ride comfortably, and all their luggage to fit too. It’s also a great car to drive and the petrol engines are well known for their above average dependability – and important factor to used car buyers.

FordMondeoBest used estate car: Ford Mondeo Estate (Priced from £2,899)

A new Ford Mondeo is due to be released this autumn, which means there has never been a better time to get a great deal on a used one. Furthermore, the largest of the Ford family doesn’t tend to hold its value as well in the first few months so buying a new version is not advisable. Instead, opt or a nearly new Ford Mondeo and you’ll benefit from plenty of space, comfort, handling and luxury for your money.
