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. We kick proceedings off with the Vauxhall Astra (2015-on) coming in at number 50.
“Redesigned from the ground up in 2015, the latest generation of Astra is vastly improved; it’s more refined, better to drive and more efficient. The latter is thanks to an extreme diet, shedding around 200kg compared to the previous generation car, along with Vauxhall’s 1.6-litre CDTi diesel engine and a perky sub-110g/km CO2 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit. Technology impresses too, thanks to the standard ‘IntelliLink’ infotainment system with an easy-to-operate touchscreen interface.”
