When looking for your next car, it can be difficult to decide between buying new or used. While purchasing a brand new car is tempting, there are some great savings to be had on used cars simply because they’re not fresh out of the showroom. The used car market is also a massive and sometimes confusing place that can be hard to navigate and find the perfect car for your needs.

So we wanted to make it a bit easier, we have brought together the top 20 best used cars in each segment for 2022! From city cars to vans, it's all here for you, and we based our decisions on the Autoexpress Used Car Awards 2022.  We can also help you get the right finance package with your new car!
