As much as we’d love our cars to last forever, there’s sure to come a time in the future when your vehicle needs replacing, whether it’s because it’s starting to show its age or you just feel like you want something a bit flashier sitting on your driveway at home.
But what car to go for? There are so many options out there that it can be very tricky to decide, so it always pays to see what make and models are proving popular at the moment to help you make your mind up.
Luckily, the good folk over at watchdog Which? have compiled a list of the top five cars that are proving popular these days, based on analysis of its own expert car reviews. They do stress the point, however, that this popularity list doesn’t mean these vehicles are Best Buys so bear that in mind before you start splashing the cash… always do your research properly before buying a new car!
The first model featured in the rundown is the Skoda Karoq, available from £20,389. This car apparently scored the maximum five stars in safety tests carried out by Euro NCAP back in 2017 so if this is a top concern for you, it might be worth checking it out.
And then there’s the Nissan Qashqai, the fourth best-selling car in the UK, it seems. It’s praised for its roomy cabin and high riding position and an update carried out in 2017 saw it given a better interior and lots more safety tech.
But what about the Honda Jazz? Even though it’s a small car, it’s eminently practical and thanks to its seating system, you’re able to carry five passengers or fit lots of luggage in the car.
The top five was rounded out by the Ford Fiesta, starting from an affordable £13,065, and the Volkswagen Tiguan… which might well be the SUV of choice for you. Check out the reviews and videos on Which? to find out even more about any of these makes and models.
If you need a bit of help with buying a new car, Which? has also put together a helpful guide of five steps to ensure that you pick the right vehicle with the right specification and get it for a good price.
You’re advised to consider your requirements first, as it might well be that the car you want and the one that you need aren’t exactly the same thing. Writing out a list of priorities was recommended, as well as how much you’re willing and able to pay for it. And don’t forget to consider the likes of a hybrid or electric car, as this could reduce your running costs.
