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 Peugeot 308 (2014-on) sits in 46th place in this year’s rankings.
“After the somewhat frumpy previous-generation 308, the latest car is a breath of fresh air and more than capable of holding its own alongside the VW Golf. It was also one of the first Peugeots to adopt the controversial i-Cockpit dashboard, with a tiny steering wheel and high-set instruments, and it works better here than in the smaller 208. The 1.5- and 1.6-litre diesel engines are thrifty, but the larger 2.0-litre BlueHDi 180 units still manage over 60mpg and have much more plentiful performance, cutting 0-62mph to under nine seconds.”
