Best cars for £10,000 or less

A £10k budget will get you a basic new car. It could also get you an amazing used one. Here are some best pre-owned cars in that bracket

If you’re willing to spend £10,000 on a new car in the UK your choices are limited to just one car - the Dacia Sandero. While the Sandero is a decent enough car on the face of things, you may be inclined to check out the used car market to see what else you can get for the same money or even less. The best used cars for under £10,000 open up a wealth of possibilities.  

All used cars in this price range should offer you a reasonable drive, with top-drawer economy and more reliability than you can shake a stick at. So, with an imaginary £10,000 in our pockets, we trawled the classifieds to see what a five-figure sum would get us if we were realistic.

For that money you can get your hands on all manner of exuberant used cars, although practicality-minded drivers will probably aim for a young, low mileage model in order to make the best use of their cash.

Don’t forget that a test drive and full inspection is a must with any used car, even if newer models are less likely to have developed faults or to have been exposed to poor maintenance. With a clean service history and proper care, there shouldn’t be too much to fear when approaching that second-hand dealership.

With a bit of patience and intuition, you’ll be climbing into the driving seat of your brand new used wheels before you can say ‘half price hero’. The examples below show what it is possible...

Ford Fiesta ST

  • We found: 1.6T ST-2 (2014/14, 76k miles)
  • Price new: £19,015
  • Price used: £5,990
  • Engine: 1.6-litre 4cyl, 180bhp  
  • Economy: 47.9mpg  
  • CO2: 138g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2017)

Hot hatchbacks are hugely popular and you only have to look at the brilliant Ford Fiesta ST to see why. It uses a 1.6-litre four-cylinder unit with 180bhp, but that’s more than enough. It’s revvy and fun to use, and sounds great, too. 

The mix of performance, agility and outright fun at sensible speeds is the real highlight, thanks to the ST’s superbly involving chassis. It’s bursting with character and makes any journey an event, despite costing less than £6,000 second-hand.

The Fiesta ST is practical enough for everyday use, too, and with good economy and creature comforts like Bluetooth and air-con, it’s a great all-rounder. The only issue could be the firm ride.

Fiat 500

  • We found: 1.2 Lounge (2016/16, 42k miles, £6,195)
  • Price new: £12,440
  • Price used: £6,195
  • Engine: 1.2-litre 4cyl, 69bhp  
  • Economy: 60.1mpg  
  • CO2: 110g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 3 stars (2017)

The Fiat 500 is a go-to choice if you’re looking for a stylish small car. Not only are prices low, but there’s also bound to be one for sale nearby and spare parts are plentiful.

This is one of the most successful recent retro designs, referencing the classic 500’s cute looks but with modern features. It’s frugal and should be cheap to insure with the 1.2-litre petrol engine. While the rear seats are tight, the 500 is great for young drivers.

Mazda 6 Tourer

  • We found: 2.2 Skyactiv-D SE-L Nav (2016/16, 75k miles)
  • Price new: £25,330
  • Price used: £7,500
  • Engine: 2.2-litre 4cyl, 150bhp 
  • Economy: 67.3mpg  
  • CO2: 110g/km 
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2013)

Buyers after a spacious family estate car have some more obvious choices, yet the good-looking, great-to-drive, well built and cheap-to-run Mazda 6 is a fantastic option.

It’s one of the more dynamic cars in its class to drive, and the frugal, punchy 2.2-litre diesel engine is great on motorway trips. The 6 has less boot space than a Skoda Superb, but it’s still very practical, while there’s loads of room in the back seats.

Jaguar XF

  • We found: 3.0 Luxury (2008/08, 62k miles)
  • Price new: £32,985
  • Price used: £6,495
  • Engine: 3.0-litre V6, 238bhp  
  • Economy: 26.8mpg  
  • CO2: 249g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 4 stars (2008)

If you spend a lot of time driving up and down the motorway, then you’ll want a big, comfy saloon like a Jaguar XF. Luckily, you can find well looked-after examples with around 60,000 miles for less than £6,500, which looks like great value – especially given that this is the car that catapulted Jaguar into the modern era.

The XF is good to drive, but more importantly, is very comfortable on the motorway, and wind and road noise is minimal. The 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine isn’t the most economical, but it gives fine performance, with lots of smooth torque. And the XF balances these traits with engaging handling, just as a Jag saloon should.

Renault Kadjar

  • We found: 1.5 dCi Dynamique Nav (2016/16, 79k miles)
  • Price new: £23,355
  • Price used: £7,480
  • Engine: 1.5-litre 4cyl, 110bhp  
  • Economy: 74.3mpg  
  • CO2: 99g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2015)

The Renault Kadjar is a great choice for an affordable family SUV. It shares parts with the ever-popular Nissan Qashqai, but we found a 2016 model for less than £7,500 with fewer than 80,000 miles in Dynamique Nav spec, which comes with sat-nav. 

The Kadjar is spacious, with a big boot and lots of room for passengers, and it’s easy to drive. While the infotainment could be better, it’s got all the features you need.

Nissan Juke

  • We found: 1.2 DiG-T Acenta Premium (2015/15, 32k miles)
  • Price new: £17,355
  • Price used: £7,495
  • Engine: 1.2-litre 4cyl, 115bhp  
  • Economy: 50.4mpg  
  • CO2: 126g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2011)

British roads are packed with compact crossovers, and the Nissan Juke is arguably the car that started the trend. Its funky looks, affordable price and practicality meant that buyers who would otherwise pick a supermini chose a small SUV instead.

The Juke is still a good car as a used model; while it’s not the most exciting to drive, the engines are economical, it has room for the kids in the back and an acceptable boot. We’ve chosena 1.2-litre turbo petrol because buyers of cars like these don’t tend to cover huge distances, so the petrol should be frugal enough and cheaper to buy.

Peugeot 208

  • We found: BlueHDi Access (2016/16, 73k miles)
  • Price new: £15,350
  • Price used: £5,290
  • Engine: 1.6-litre 4cyl, 75bhp
  • Economy: 80.7mpg 
  • CO2: 90g/km 
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2012)

The Peugeot 208’s 1.6-litre BlueHDi is an astonishing engine. Without any assistance from an electric motor at all, it claims an official fuel economy figure of over 80mpg and emissions of just 90g/km. That makes it one of the most economical cars around, and it’s now available for about £5,300.

This version of the 208, in low-spec Access trim, is all about cost-cutting rather than comforts. The 208 isn’t much fun to drive and the cabin layout is awkward. If you’re looking to save some cash on your motoring, though, this frugal French hatchback is worth a look.

Citroen Grand C4 Picasso

  • We found: 1.6 e-HDi Airdream VTR+ (2014/14, 70k miles)
  • Price new: £22,400
  • Price used: £5,500
  • Engine: 1.6-litre 4cyl, 114bhp  
  • Economy: 70.6mpg  
  • CO2: 104g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2013)

The Citroen Grand C4 Picasso (later the Grand C4 SpaceTourer) is still one of the best ways to carry a big family around in comfort, and a used model is even better.

You get a true seven-seater and, while the rearmost seats are meant for kids, not adults, the rest of the cabin is spacious and has all the kit you’ll need. It’s also a very comfy car to drive, with a quiet cabin, and diesel versions can be very frugal.

MINI Roadster

  • We found: 1.6 Cooper S (2013/13, 73k miles)
  • Price new: £21,050
  • Price used: £7,995
  • Engine: 1.6-litre 4cyl, 184bhp  
  • Economy: 47.1mpg  
  • CO2: 139g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: N/A

Lots of people love the MINI hatch, and the Convertible is nearly as good to drive, but MINI used to offer an alternative: the Roadster, a funky model with a convertible roof and a more pronounced back end.

It used most of the same engineering, so the Roadster is just as fun to drive as other MINIs – and especially so in Cooper S form. This is a distinctive car on a modest budget that will put a smile on your face.

Renault Zoe

  • We found: 65kWh Dynamique Zen (2015/15, 20k miles, £5,900*)
  • Price new: £20,043
  • Price used: £5,900
  • Engine: Electric motor, 88bhp  
  • Range: 149 miles
  • CO2: 0g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2013)

Five years ago the Zoe was among the best electric cars of its type, and now you can get one for a smidge under £6,000, which is fantastic. There is a catch, however: battery lease payments cost up to £60 per month.

Yet when a charge costs around £3, a Zoe may still be cheaper to run than an ultra-frugal diesel. It makes most sense for urban drivers who can charge it at home. The Zoe is quiet, punchy, comfortable and easy to drive.

Suzuki Baleno

  • We found: 1.0 Boosterjet SZ-T (2017/67, 24k miles)
  • Price new: £15,079
  • Price used: £5,808
  • Economy: 56.4mpg  
  • CO2: 114g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 3 stars (2016)

While the Suzuki Baleno has a slightly drab image, it’s closely related to the Swift, so it’s great to drive. It’s more practical too, which makes it a great buy for anyone looking for a roomy but enjoyable supermini.

A big part of the Baleno’s appeal comes from the 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, which is punchy and efficient. It gives over 50mpg, so running costs are low, and the Baleno is an often-overlooked gem.

Alfa Romeo 156 GTA

  • We found: 156 GTA (2003/03, 109k miles)
  • Price new: £27,377
  • Price used: £7,995
  • Engine: 3.2-litre V6, 250bhp  
  • Economy: 23.3mpg  
  • CO2: 287g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: N/A

As Alfa Romeo’s answer to the sportier BMW 3 Series models, the 156 GTA is a bit of a cult car. It was never as sweet to drive as the BMW, but the key to its appeal was the engine.

The 3.2-litre V6 is one of the best-sounding mainstream engines ever, and it’s a joy to use with the six-speed manual gearbox. That there’s room for the family, and a decent boot is just a bonus. But be warned, Alfas of this era aren’t famed for their reliability.

BMW 130i M Sport

  • We found: 130i M Sport (2006/06, 98k miles)
  • Price new: £26,367
  • Price used: £5,995
  • Engine: 3.0-litre 6cyl, 265bhp
  • Economy: 30.7mpg 
  • CO2: 221g/km 
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2004)

Today’s BMW 1 Series is very similar to rival hatchbacks, because many are front-wheel drive. However previous generations were rear-wheel drive and the 130i model had a six-cylinder petrol engine, making it a unique and exciting hot hatch.

The 265bhp engine revs beautifully and takes the car from 0-62mph in 6.1 seconds. The 130i’s sweet handling and upmarket cabin mean it feels a cut above similarly priced hot hatches, with a more mature driving experience. You can buy them cheaply, but spend a little more for a good one and it could hold its value.

Skoda Octavia

  • We found: 1.2 TSI SE (2014/63, 75k miles)
  • Price new: £17,875
  • Price used: £6,650
  • Engine: 1.2-litre 4cyl, 105bhp  
  • Economy: 57.7mpg  
  • CO2: 114g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2013)

In the new car market, the Skoda Octavia is one of the very best all-round cars on sale, and a second-hand model is likely to make a fantastic buy too. Above all, the Octavia is one of the most practical cars of its type, with a huge boot and loads of head and legroom in the back seats.

It’s also a good car to drive – comfortable, quiet inside and capable of impressive fuel economy. We’ve picked a 1.2-litre turbo petrol model as our favourite because this engine is great for all kinds of uses, and is extremely quiet, frugal

and refined. But the diesel versions are better for motorway travel, because they’re more efficient at speed, and punchier.

Nissan Navara

  • We found: 2.5 dCi Double Cab  Tekna (2012/12, 110k miles)
  • Price new: £28,990
  • Price used: £7,950
  • Engine: 2.5-litre 4cyl, 188bhp  
  • Economy: 31.4mpg  
  • CO2: 238g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: N/A

The Nissan Navara is a dependable and rugged pick-up with a payload of over a tonne in double-cab form. With plenty of room inside, it could double as a family car. 

It’s a great towcar, with a 2.5-litre diesel that can handle up to 2,600kg. At first it’s surprising how much a 2008 Navara costs, but given how reliable they are and how many have very high mileages, the £8,000 model we found seems decent value.

Volkswagen Golf

  • We found: 1.4 TSI BlueMotion Match (2016/16, 55k miles, £9,900)
  • Price new: £20,955
  • Price used: £9,900
  • Engine: 1.4-litre 4cyl, 122bhp
  • Economy: 53.3mpg CO2: 123g/km 
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2012)

It was a surprise last year when we found that the eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf wasn’t really any better than the mildly facelifted Mk 7.5 car. So the fact that you

can get into the brilliant Golf Mk7 for less than £10,000 is all the more exciting. 

This version of the Golf is one of the best ever. It’s comfortable, good to drive, well built and full of tech. It’s also fitted with a range of excellent engines that manage to deliver all the performance you need but with good fuel economy at the same time. 

The 1.4-litre TSI turbo petrol we picked out returns more than 50mpg, is quick enough for easy overtakes on the motorway, and is nice and quiet on the move. There’s plenty of choice, though, and the 2.0-litre TDI models are fine high-speed cruisers, thanks to excellent fuel economy. 

The Golf has plenty of room in the back seats, a fair 380-litre boot and enough on-board tech in Match trim, so it’s a great family car. There are lots for sale, so you should get plenty of choice in the classifieds.

Ford B-MAX

  • We found: 1.0 EcoBoost Titanium (2016/16, 52k miles)
  • Price new: £17,745
  • Price used: £8,100
  • Engine: 1.0-litre 3cyl, 125bhp  
  • Economy: 57.7mpg  
  • CO2: 114g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2012)

If you’re looking for a small car but need enough room to carry the whole family, the Ford B-MAX is a fantastic choice. It’s based on the Fiesta, so it’s small and fun to drive for an MPV, and the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engines are excellent, balancing economy and grunt. 

Yet the B-MAX has a trick up its sleeve. The clever sliding rear doors and the fact that there are no B-pillars in the way mean that access to the surprisingly roomy back seats is really easy. It’s a brilliant feature and certainly not just a gimmick, because it makes getting kids in and out of car seats a doddle. 

Overall, the B-MAX is a great option for someone who doesn’t want a big family car, but needs that level of practicality.

Lexus LS

  • We found: LS 600h L (2007/57, 109k miles)
  • Price new: £86,735
  • Price used: £9,999
  • Engine: 5.0-l V8/e-motor, 439bhp  
  • Economy: 30.4mpg  
  • CO2: 219g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: N/A

Usually buying a luxurious limousine for 1/10th of its original asking price is a fool’s errand, because you’ll spend more than the value of the car on repairs and servicing. Yet this isn’t necessarily the case with a Lexus LS.

It’s unwise to assume it’ll never go wrong, but the Lexus will be a more reassuring pick than rivals of the same age. Plus the LS is ultra-smooth, quiet and has a high-quality cabin, so it’s a fantastic way to travel.

Volvo XC90

  • We found: D5 SE Geartronic (2012/12, 100k miles)
  • Price new: £39,570
  • Price used: £8,700
  • Engine: 2.4-litre 5cyl, 200bhp  
  • Economy: 34.4mpg  
  • CO2: 215g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2003

Recently Volvo has overhauled its range with a new look, but don’t discount its older SUVs. We’ve picked an XC90 here, but the XC60 of this period is a good buy as well.

The comfortable, seven-seat XC90 is a great long-distance cruiser but it’s equally at home on rural roads, and the huge boot and passenger space are really useful. The strong diesel engine suits the car, even if 30mpg fuel economy isn’t up to modern standards.

Honda S2000

  • We found: S2000 GT (2005/55, 68k miles)
  • Price new: £28,275
  • Price used: £10,000
  • Engine: 2.0-litre 4cyl, 237bhp  
  • Economy: 28.2mpg  
  • CO2: 236g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 4 stars (2002)

The Honda S2000 is unlikely to get any cheaper than it is now. Prices already seem to be rising for this modern classic.

Its superb engine produces 237bhp with no turbocharging, so throttle response is stunning. It revs to just under 9,000rpm, emits a spine-tingling howl, and is a reliable unit, as long as it’s serviced correctly. The rear-drive S2000 is fun to drive, making it a complete sports car package at a great price.

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

  • We found: GX4hs (2015/15, 100k miles)
  • Price new: £40,054
  • Price used: £9,000
  • Engine: 2.4-litre 4cyl/e-motor, 119bhp  
  • Economy: 148mpg  
  • CO2: 44g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2013)

When the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV was launched in the UK, it was priced on par with the diesel model, and the tax benefits for company car buyers were huge. It sold in big numbers as a new car, so there are lots of used examples for sale at very reasonable prices.

The Outlander’s all-electric range of around 30 miles means this model is a fantastic way to decide if an electric car could fit into your lifestyle. And with a price tag of only £9,000 for the GX4hs model we found, it’s still an affordable family SUV, even if you find the electric element isn’t up your street. 

There’s lots of room inside and the boot is big, while GX4hs is a high trim level. The PHEV doesn’t come with seven seats, though.

Audi A4 Avant

  • We found: 2.0 TDI SE Technik (2015/15, 90k miles)
  • Price new: £31,575
  • Price used: £8,200
  • Engine: 2.0-litre 4cyl, 147bhp  
  • Economy: 56.5mpg  
  • CO2: 130g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2015)

The Audi A4 is a great choice, offering good comfort, space, cabin quality and fine fuel economy on a modest budget. We found a 2.0-litre diesel model – the best balance of performance and efficiency – with around 90,000 miles for just over £8,000. 

While the A4 isn’t as good to drive as a BMW 3 Series, it offers lots of comfort and refinement, plus the level of kit you need and plenty of room for the whole family.

Ford Ranger

  • We found: 2.2 TDCi XLT (2013/13, 96k miles)
  • Price new: £25,475
  • Price used: £9,475
  • Engine: 2.2-litre 4cyl, 150bhp  
  • Economy: 36.2mpg  
  • CO2: 206g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: N/A

Used versions of the third-generation Ford Ranger are now available for quite a bit less than half of their new price. We found a 2013 model with under 100,000 miles for £9,475.

The Ranger’s slightly lumpy ride is typical of pick-ups of this age, but don’t let it put you off. The Ford’s strong points are its spacious cabin, car-like driving experience and a towing capacity of up to 3,350kg. With four-wheel drive, it’s a solid off-roader too.

Vauxhall Astra

  • We found: 1.0 Turbo ecoTEC SRi (2018/67, 24k miles)
  • Price new: £21,615
  • Price used: £8,000
  • Engine: 1.0-litre 3cyl, 105bhp  
  • Economy: 58.9mpg  
  • CO2: 110g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2015)

In recent years many buyers have shunned diesel engines in favour of a downsized petrol unit, and it’s hard to argue with this. Cars such as this 1.0-litre Vauxhall Astra show how a small petrol engine can be as frugal as a diesel, plus cleaner and quieter. 

The engine in the Astra is fun to use, and the rest of the car is excellent too, because it’s good to drive, comfortable, practical and well equipped in SRi form. Go for SRi Nav trim if you need sat-nav, though.

Peugeot 308 SW

  • We found: 1.2 PureTech GT Line (2015/65, 44k miles)
  • Price new: £23,775
  • Price used: £9,295
  • Engine: 1.2-litre 3cyl, 128bhp  
  • Economy: 58.9mpg  
  • CO2: 111g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2013)

If you need a spacious estate car, then consider a Peugeot 308 SW. Its 660-litre boot space with the seats up opens out to 1,775 litres when you drop the rear seats.

It’s roomy enough to be a family car, and once you get used to the slightly odd driving position, it’s good to drive. The 1.2-litre petrol engine is punchier than you might expect, and it’s quite frugal as well, so this is the one we’ve picked out. At just under £9,300 for a 2015 model, it’s good value.

Skoda Yeti

  • We found: 2.0 TDI SE L (2015/65, 73k miles)
  • Price new: £22,335
  • Price used: £10,000
  • Engine: 2.0-litre 4cyl, 110bhp 
  • Economy: 62.8mpg  
  • CO2: 118g/km  
  • Euro NCAP: 5 stars (2009)

The Skoda Yeti is a former Auto Express Used Car of the Year. At just £10,000 for a 2015 car with 73,000 miles, it’s great value for such a versatile vehicle. It’s great to drive, comfortable and a really practical family car. There’s lots of room in the back, even for adults, and the 416-litre boot means it’s useful for all kinds of tasks. The model we found has the excellent 2.0-litre diesel engine, which performs strongly, yet also delivers more than 60mpg. 

As a new car, the Yeti was a consistently high scorer in our Driver Power customer satisfaction survey. Owners particularly liked its reliability, ease of driving and handling.

Toyota GT86

  • We found: D-4S (2013/63, 71k miles)
  • Price new: £25,115
  • Price used: £9,995
  • Engine: 2.0-litre 4cyl, 200bhp
  • Economy: 36.2mpg 
  • CO2: 180g/km 
  • Euro NCAP: N/A

Fun is at the heart of the Toyota GT86. It’s a small, rear-wheel-drive sports car with a 2.0-litre petrol engine that loves to rev, so holds particular appeal to driving enthusiasts. You need to be in the right mood to enjoy it, but on a twisty road the GT86 is a joy.

The steering is communicative, the suspension is supple but controls the body well, and there’s just enough grip. It’s usable every day, thanks to some creature comforts, but also special enough to be a weekend car. GT86s are currently holding their value well, so depreciation is slow. As an alternative try the mechanically identical Subaru BRZ.
