The 3 Best Fords on the Used Market Right Now
The value of the secondhand car market is growing as figures reached a record level of £38.1billion in 2012, rising from £32.4billion just four years earlier. That means choosing what to buy can be difficult.
Ford have been battling it out with Vauxhall to be the bestselling car manufacturer in the UK for years now. The American-owned firm is known for its quality amongst a variety of different product ranges. Here are three of the best Ford cars on the used market right now.
Ford Fiesta 1.6 litreTDCi
The Ford Fiesta has both a long and successful history. After debuting in 1976, the Fiesta has been the best seller in its category for 27 of the 37 years it’s been available. In fact, the Fiesta recently became the UK’s best-selling vehicle of all time when its total sales topped 4,115,000. As the perfect all-rounder, it’s not difficult to see why this small car is so desirable either. It’s available in standard Studio or Style models, a sporty ST; and more luxurious Titanium and Zetec models depending on what you’re looking for. It’s the 1.6 litre TDCi with an ECOnetic diesel engine offering 85mpg that offers the best value though.
Ford Galaxy 2.0 litreTDCi
For these in need of a little more space, the Ford Galaxy is the quintessential MPV. Often compared with the S-MAX, the Galaxy series is a little larger and carries seven people comfortably. The Galaxy is available in the basic Edge model, the standard Zetec and Ghia ranges, and the more premium Titanium model. The two middle options offer the best value for money as the 138bhp 2.0 litre TDCi diesel engine is available in both of them. The 2.0 litre version strikes the middle ground between power and cost-effectiveness, while there’s s also a smaller 1.6 litre model that’s ideal for those not looking for big performance.
Ford Mondeo Estate 1.5 litreEcoBoost
Those looking for a slightly more stylish ride for the family should look no further than the new Ford Mondeo Estate. The latest in the range offers the same great driving experience, comfort, and reliability that we’ve come to expect from the series. However, this time it’s in a package that’s clearly the best looking Mondeo yet. The premium Titanium model comes with the best in Ford SYNC technology, a touch screen dashboard, and a built-in sat-nav. As there’s another update coming up in 2015 – introducing Ford’s 1.0 litre three-cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine into the Mondeo range for the first time – be on the look for any great used deals.
