This week we’re being sensible, with a round-up of some of the best supermini deals out there.
The new Fiesta is fresh in the showrooms, but the previous generation has always been a solid secondhand buy.
Behind the dull design it’s great to drive, running costs are low and it’s mechanically tough. We found an 05-reg 1.4 Flame 3dr with air-con, a full service history and 33,000 miles for £4300.
If you’ve got a bigger budget then buying nearly-new is a great way to save a few quid. The current Renault Clio is a cracking car, but used values are weakening as more come onto the market.
After a bit of digging we tracked down this 57-plate 1.2 Dynamique 5dr with 14,500 miles on the clock. It’s wearing an £8K pricetag, a £3300 saving on its new price, with two years warranty remaining.
