Drivers on the lookout for a used car have been advised that they could secure themselves a good deal if they go for a Mazda6.
According to Parker’s Car Price Guide, this model "almost single-handedly transformed the image of Mazda in the UK" and can be found at dealers for a reasonable price.
The Mazda6 offers value, practicality and comfort, according to Parker’s, as well as an attractive design and a "spirited drive" for motorists who like to enjoy their time behind the wheel.
In other segments, there are currently "plenty" of Peugeot 1007s available for less than £6,000, according to the guide, while discounts are currently available on models such as the Chevrolet Kalos and the Seat Toledo.
For "hot hatchback" buyers, Renault reportedly has the best proposition at the moment in the shape of the Megane Renaultsport, which Parker’s describes as "stylish and top value".
Other options within this segment include the Focus ST and the "charismatic" Golf GTI.
For drivers on the lookout for a people carrier, the Citroen C8 is tipped as the best for value, while the Mitsubishi Outlander is also identified as an opportunity for a saving, with prices expected to fall with the Outlander II currently on sale.
