Unsurprisingly, the Ford Fiesta continues to be an extremely popular car.

It's a well-loved vehicle that is both powerful and economical making it a great first-time car as well as a great family car. With so many models available, the Fiesta is guaranteed to suit anyone and any needs.
Known for being one of the highest-quality hatchbacks on the market, a used Volkswagen Golf will always be a popular choice amongst our customers. They're a great all-rounder family car, offering reliability, peace of mind and a large boot - what's not to love! Plus, if the standard 3 or 5 door models are not big enough, look at the Golf Estate for that bit more space a growing family might need. Now available in petrol, diesel, electric and hybrid models, this car is likely to only continue to grow in popularity.
A slightly bigger version of the Fiesta, the Ford Focus is a car you can trust. With plenty of space, a comfortable ride and easy to drive, as well as a stylish exterior and all the mod-cons, this dependable car ticks all the boxes for family life and it's a great city car. It's also economical to run with some models also offering low emission levels, perfect as more and more cities introduce low emission zones. Whether you're looking for a petrol or diesel, hatchback or estate, there is a Focus to suit everyone's needs and budgets.
A modern take on a classic, the Fiat 500 is the ideal car for any first-time driver or anyone looking for a wonderful city car. Available in both a 3 door or 2 door convertible, this fun, small car has nimble handling and a powerful-enough engine for both driving around town and on the motorway. The Fiat's unique interior and comfortable seats may not be big enough for the weekly shop but are perfect for this small, stylish car.
A well known and loved classic from Vauxhall, the Astra is a terrific all-rounder family hatchback. It combines comfort and efficiency with powerful performance, making it the ideal car for both motorway driving and those trips around the city. The Astra also offers a lot of car for your money: it boasts a roomy interior and decent boot size so you can pack everything up for your family's next staycation!
The ideal family SUV, the Nissan Qashqai continues to remain popular with our customers.
