With second hand vehicles proving extremely popular, motor traders know that spotting the best value gems on the market can make them a tidy profit when they re-sell.
With everything from hot hatchbacks to slick SUVs, there are a range of cars that are going to be stars in the second hand car trade this year and so we have put together a list of our top tips
This hatchback from Kia is not the most illustrious or eye-grabbing vehicle in a tough market. Nevertheless, it has proven a real favourite amongst second hand buyers in recent months.
The Cee’d’s build, ride comfort and outstanding seven-year/100,000 mile warranty make it an outstanding second hand car, particularly as the warranty is transferrable between drivers.
Keep an eye out for both the 1.0-litre petrol and 1.6-litre diesel engine versions of this reliable little motor.
Often at the very top of the best-sellers list in car magazines, the Vauxhall Astra is one of the giants of the family hatchback market.
With every version of the latest Astra coming complete with DAB radio, Bluetooth phone connection, air conditioning and cruise control, it is easy to see why it is so sought-after.
With a wide range of versions from recent years on the market, there are plenty of deals to be had on both the older models and the new, spruced-up, vehicles.
One of the cheapest ways to own an SUV, the Dacia Duster is a lot more functional than some of its rivals, but the handling and comfort of the Romanian car has made it a great choice.
The Dacia has been particularly popular among second hand buyers as it has proven to be one of the slowest-depreciating cars on the market today. This makes it an easy pick for our list as the SUV holds its value well down the years.
As Britain’s third best-selling new car, it will be of little surprise that the Ford Focus earns the final spot on our list.
The Focus is great to drive and the huge amount available on the market mean that there are plenty of second hand deals out there waiting to be snapped up.
