Used car brands
The used car market offers a bewildering choice of models and brands. Today’s manufacturing processes have seen the creation of entire new classes of vehicles such as the SUV and various ‘crossover’ models that sit between two nominally separate classes.
This extra choice might be bewildering, but it does mean you are presented with a really interesting set of options in used cars – and it’s well worth exploring some of the more unusual models than just considering the staples.
Manufacture has also come on leaps and bounds in recent years. Where once used cars were the poor man’s choice, today most people know that the depreciation suffered by new cars makes a used car actually the preferable option. Coupled to the greater reliability and higher spec that even basic cars now have, you can pick and choose in relative certainty that your car will last a good few years.
While considering a used car, it’s also worth considering that today many cars are manufactured under different badges. If a VW golf is a little out of your price bracket the Seat Leon is actually exactly the same car – but with a different body. Likewise, the Toyota Aygo, Citroen C1 and Peugeot 107 are the same car with different styling and specifications according to your brand preference and wallet.
In some cases, this shared manufacturing has turned around an entire perception of a brand. Skoda was once a laughing stock but today, manufactured by Volkswagen, their cars are seen as the epitome of solidity and reliability.
With increasing understanding of man’s impact on the environment has come greater awareness of the impact of motoring. Buying a used car is actually a positive good for the environment as the greater part of a car’s lifetime environmental impact actually comes during its manufacture.
Details of car performance in terms of fuel economy are also important. Most used cars presented on this site are accompanied by readily understandable economy figures so you can see how much fuel you’re likely to use (or you can always phone a dealer if you want more information). And even if you don’t care a fig for the planet, the price of fuel makes it a no-brainer to look into fuel economy during the buying process.
Finally, when you buy a car from a trusted used car dealer, you can be sure you’re buying a car that is mechanically sound, has a proven provenance and is backed up by genuine knowledge and an extensive support network for finance and maintenance should you need it.
Our used cars are sourced from some of the biggest names in the automotive business and you won’t find any backlot car dealers or fly-by-night operations on our site.
