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 Volvo V40 (2012-on) is sitting in 35th place.
“As a new buy, the V40 is starting to feel its age, but those worries fade away when considering a used example. Inside, all the basics are right, from the quality of materials to the driving position and excellent seats. Early cars (up to Spring 2015) offer a choice of Ford-sourced 1.6- or Volvo five-cylinder 2.0-litre diesel engines, while later cars are confusingly badged the same in D2, D3 and D4 flavours, and all featuring the same four-cylinder 2.0-litre diesel lump.”
