And The Top 50 Used Diesel Cars In The UK Are...

With new car registrations taking a battering of late, DieselCar and EcoCar magazine's team of second-hand vehicle experts have whittled down a list of more than 500 used cars, to come up with the ultimate 50 used cars. The magazine's experts examined purchase price and residual value, as well as overall fitness for purpose and competence when coming up with this year’s top buys.

The top spot is once again won by last year’s winner, the Kia Sportage (2010 to 2016). The Sportage was also awarded the title of best used medium SUV, beating a long list of strong contenders for the prize.

Citroën’s distinctive C4 Cactus raced up the charts to the number two spot in this year’s awards, while Mazda’s 6 grabbed pole position in the large car sector, grabbing the title of best used large car.

The top 50 used diesel cars for 2018 is as follows:
