Top 10: most popular used car reviews | What Car?

Our most popular used car reviews of April

Buying a used car can net you a real bargain, and with sales of used cars in the UK consistently outstripping new cars, it’s no wonder that the used reviews section of our website is proving so popular.

That’s why we’ve rounded up the most popular used car reviews that you’ve been reading. It’s a real mixture, combining some of the UK’s best-selling hatchbacks with family SUVs and even luxury cars.

These are the most popular used car reviews this month.

10th – Honda CR-V

Years: 2006-12 Budget from: £2500 Our favourite: 2.2 i-CDTi ES

The Honda CR-V is a large SUV that places a big emphasis on practicality, making it ideal for families on the move. As little as £2500 will get you an early diesel-engined model, but we’d aim to spend around £5000 on a 2.2-litre ES model from 2009. Every CR-V gets four-wheel drive as standard, and our recommended ES model comes with climate and cruise controls and parking sensors.

9th – Volkswagen Polo

Years: 2009-present Budget from: £3000 Our favourite: 1.4 Match

The Polo hatchback may be small, but it’s still classy inside, thanks to sharing many of its fixtures and fittings with the larger Volkswagen Golf. It’s also fairly practical, offering a decent boot and more leg room for rear passengers than most of its rivals. Go for the 1.4-litre petrol engine if you’ll mainly be driving in town, or the 1.4-litre diesel if you’ll be travelling further afield more often.

8th – Volkswagen Golf

Years: 2013-present Budget from: £6000 Our favourite: 1.4 TSI 125 Match 5dr

The current Golf has just been updated, which means there are plenty of pre-facelift models about to find their way onto the used market. This seventh-generation Golf has been well received, too, thanks to its upmarket interior, comfort and fairly frugal engines. As with the Polo above, the 1.4-litre petrol is your best choice, especially if you won’t be doing enough miles to justify a diesel. Our recommended Match special edition model comes with adaptive cruise control, automatic lights and wipers, a DAB radio and Bluetooth.
