Our team of second-hand car experts have deliberated over more than 750 secondhand cars, reducing that number down to just 50 of the very best used motors on the market today. Here we announce the ultimate guide to cars that buyers simply cannot miss in the 2019 DieselCar & EcoCar Used Car Top 50. The British-built all-electric Nissan Leaf (2011 to 2018) is in position 22.
“It might have been replaced, but owning a first-generation Leaf is still a good bet. That’s because there are now more charging points as the electric vehicle infrastructure slowly takes off. As you’d expect, the driving experience is quiet and relaxed, there are very few mechanical parts that can go wrong, and the larger, 370-litre boot of later models means the Leaf can really work as a family runabout. A 30kWh battery was added in 2015 for an improved 155-mile range, but beware, these models command a premium.”
