Used Car Heroes: We reveal the winner of our used car

Used Car Heroes: £1000 - £3000

After an extensive search, our mission to find your favourite Used Car Hero of 2015 is finally over. We gathered together some of the best, most interesting, and iconic used cars we could find on – and then asked you to vote for them.

With 15 videos to watch, there were obviously plenty to choose from, but we gave you all of November to watch the films and tell us which cars took your fancy. You even made a few suggestions for cars that we can look at next time around.

We then spent a couple of weeks poring through all of your comments, reading what you thought about each of our contenders, and tallying up the thousands of votes, firstly to come up with the winner of each three-car shootout, and then to crown an overall champion. The results definitely threw up some surprises, but in most cases, the ones we loved most, you did, too.

Things were really close, though: the winner in the top price point was decided by just eight votes; and, things were just as hard fought at the bottom of the table, with the Ford SportKa narrowly avoiding the wooden spoon (which went to the Toyota Land Cruiser) by a solitary vote.
