If you’re of a mind to buy a mad mid-engined supermini, you’re obviously limited to the Clio V6. Just as well, then, that used prices are starting to drop. Values are now dipping below £20k if you’re prepared to settle for a higher mileage than average, or a wacky colour such as yellow. Paying a little more does get you a better buy; witness the 10k 04/53 car we spied for £22,500. However, it seems dealers are not being so generous on trade-in offers for the hottest Clio. One Autocar reader was offered a mere £13,000 for her year-old 20k car.

Our Verdict

Porsche Boxster

Does bigger mean better for Porsche’s third-generation Boxster?
