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 Skoda Octavia (2013-on) secures eighth place.
“The Octavia is an incredible vehicle, based on the underpinnings of the iconic Golf, but with extended bodywork for your luggage and extra interior space. There’s a vast 590-litre boot, making the Octavia ideal for DIY enthusiasts and family holidays. Quality is excellent, with many buyers preferring its interior ambience to its Volkswagen and SEAT siblings. Comfort takes priority over performance, unless you go for the exciting vRS models with the same 2.0-litre diesel engine as the Golf GTD, stiffer suspension and bigger brakes.”
