The Auto Express Used Car Awards 2015, in association with Warrantywise, will be published in the 7 October issue of Auto Express and on autoexpress.co.uk from the same date. The Awards will name the best second-hand cars in 16 key classes of the market, as well as crowning the 2015 Used Car of the Year.

Warrantywise is the UK’s leading car warranty company, providing warranty services to many of the country’s largest dealer groups. It is a family business and the senior partners have a wealth of experience, having operated in the used car warranty market for more than 20 years.

Britain's best used cars 2014

An expert panel made up of Steve Fowler (Auto Express editor-in-chief), Graham Hope (deputy editor), James Disdale (road test editor), Joe Finnerty (consumer editor) and Lawrence Whittaker (Warrantywise CEO) assessed cars’ on-road ability, practicality, residual values, warranty history and ownership experience – based on their performance in Auto Express’s market-leading Driver Power survey – to find 2015’s years winning cars. 

Whittaker said: “Judging the best used cars is easier for me than most as, through Warrantywise, I have reliability data dating back 15 years on pretty well every car sold in the UK. We have also taken into consideration driveability and depreciation as well.” 

No less than 16 classes were considered: city cars, superminis, premium small cars, compact family cars, estates, family cars, crossovers, compact SUVs, large SUVs, compact executive cars, executive cars, coupes, MPVs, cabriolets, sports cars and luxury cars.

From these category winners, an overall Car of the Year will be crowned. The Vauxhall Insignia was named Auto Express Used Car of the Year in 2013 and 2014.
