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 Ford S-MAX (2006 to 2015) is our favourite Used MPV and is in position 26.
“The S-MAX is the Galaxy’s wilder brother, based on the same genes and still with seven seats, but more fun-seeking. In driving terms, it’s the benchmark other MPV’s are judged against, with sharp steering, agile handling and lack of body lean that makes it feel like a well-sorted estate on the move. The 1.6-litre TDCi unit feels a bit underpowered though, so we’d seek out a 2.0- or 2.2-litre powerplant if you plan on filling more than the front seats and heading out of town onto entertaining roads.”
