June 23rd 2022 info review

New cars come out seemingly all the time. While this does mean that there’s plenty of choice available, it also means our beloved motors age much faster than we anticipate. If you’re feeling the need to upgrade your car, £25,000 is a more than adequate budget for a car with a strong price to performance ratio, and we’re not just talking engines.

In this low-medium price range, there’re a whole bunch of options from various manufacturers looking to provide a well-rounded car with some, if not all, the bells and whistles. To help, we’ve gathered this list of the best cars under £25k available right now.

The best cars under £25,000

Volvo V90

Volvo is known for its rock-solid construction across all of its cars. The V90 is the true embodiment of this, with hundreds of these motors knocking about on the used market.

The Volvo V90 is the Swedish manufacturer’s luxurious response to other premium saloons from BMW and Audi, except the V90 is available at a much more attractive price point. For under £25,000, you’ll likely be looking at models released in the past three years but fear not, even these antiquated motors rival the very greatest current-generation cars spec-wise.

The V90 also isn’t short on power, with a hefty horsepower rating of just under 200 at your disposal. All in all, the V90 is a great used car choice if you’re looking for something reliable with a bit of luxury thrown in for the weekends.

Toyota C-HR

With benefits around hybrid motors being wildly public, it’s no wonder why some of the best cars within certain price brackets are all about efficiency.

Toyota is already a majorly successful hybrid car supplier, with the Toyota Prius being a mainstay on British roads from the likes of families and taxi drivers. However, the Prius does leave something to be desired for those fonder of larger cars: space.

As an answer to spatial woes, the Toyota C-HR comes as a fitting solution. A large interior, competent engine package, all the while promising excellent fuel economy, the Toyota C-HR is packed full of benefits. New models start from anywhere in the £40,000 range, but a slightly older C-HR can be comfortably bought for much less than £25,000 here in the UK.

Ford Puma

Based on the same chassis as the ever-successful Ford Fiesta, this SUV Crossover is one that Ford can be proud of.

The Ford Puma fills a somewhat unique gap in the automotive industry. Aimed at daily commuters in need of a slightly larger city car, the Ford Puma might be just the ticket for those fed up of contorting themselves into a supermini every morning.

The Ford Puma was unveiled in 2019 with four different trim levels to choose from. Starting with the Titanium model and going all the way up to Ford’s prestigious ST branding, each one comes with a boost in creature comforts and engine performance. Although the Puma surely isn’t the fastest car we’ve ever seen, it excels at mainly two things: safety and economy.

The Puma achieves an average fuel economy of 42mpg and has a Euro NCAP safety rating of five stars. All-in-all, the Ford Puma is a well-rounded car with a lot of useful features for the daily drive.
