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 Volkswagen Golf is voted our Best Plug-In Hybrid Car and is in position 19.
“The Golf’s reputation makes it one of the most sought after used cars, and with suitably high residual values. Despite being around since 2012, the Mk7 still looks fresh, a fact aided by the subtle updates in 2017 that require a spot-the-difference comparison. Its interior feels streets ahead of mainstream rivals, rewarding drivers with a quality ambience, making it a tough package to beat. The GTD is fast and frugal, returning over 60mpg, despite a top speed of over 140mph. The estate editions are a roomy alternative to other mainstream cargo carriers.”
