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. Last year’s winner, the Kia Sportage (2010 to 2016) is in second place this year and has been voted our Best Used Medium SUV for 2019.
“The third-generation Kia Sportage looks set to become a design classic for the Korean brand, with desirable styling that strikes a chord with buyers. A generous seven-year warranty means most examples are still covered, not that you’re likely to need it, as reliability is top notch. All trim levels come well kitted out, and its 1.7-litre CRDi diesel engine is smooth and efficient enough to give this SUV bills that aren’t dissimilar to a superminis, while 2.0-litre examples with four-wheel drive perform well in winter but cost more to run.”
