Browse Motors.co.uk and they come thick and fast. As a new feature, we begin a round-up of the ones that have caught our eye..
If you’ve £5000 to spend on a small hatchback, this Megane (above, left) at Sunwin Renault, Derby is worth investigation. It’s a top-of-the-line Sport saloon, which means plush seat trim, alloy wheels and air conditioning as standard. It’s also got a 2.0-litre petrol engine mated to an automatic gearbox. It’s a 2005 car on a 54-registration but with only 12,000 miles showing, it’s little used for its age. To find out more, browse in ‘Find a Motor’ under ‘Renault Megane’ and set the price maximum to ‘£5000’.
Next up is another French car, this time a 207 (above, right) with the nifty and attractive panoramic glass roof that Peugeot is offering with more and more of its cars. This extends from near the top of the windscreen as far as the rear seats. It’s tinted to prevent the car becoming too hot inside, while an electric blind hides it away if you wish. At £6999, this well equipped 1.4 SE five-door model is half its asking price when new, and is little more than a year old. It’s 07-reg and has just 15,000 miles showing. Right Car Supermarket is the seller – so look it up via our ‘Find a Motor’ used car search.
Like the idea of a new MGTF, but fighting shy of the £16,000+ price tag attached to the born-again models from the Chinese just now reaching showrooms? SMG Rover of High Wycombe has one of the last cars built by MG (above, left). This silver car has 17in alloy wheels and alcantara seats . It was registered in 2006, wears a 56-plate and is showing just 3400 miles. Price? £10,995.
Here’s another half-price car. This top-of-the-tree Vauxhall Vectra 2.2 Elite estate (above, right) would have listed at a heady £22,600 when new. As it is, it’s 08-reg, so it’s less than a year old, and has covered just 3500 miles. But the asking price is just £12,995, if you visit Bellinger Vauxhall, Wantage. As before, hunt it down via our used car search to see the full low-down.
All of these were advertised as for sale this morning. If any has you reaching for your cheque book, ensure first by phoning that someone else hasn’t beaten you to the deal. We’d expect bargains this strong to move fast.
