Which used Honda Accord estate should I buy?

Honda makes cracking petrol engines but has only lately put much effort into its diesels. The one in the Accord is terrific, though. It's powerful, smooth and a miser with fuel, packing plenty of the low-rev power that makes it perfect for a load-hauler.

If petrol is your thing, then the smaller of what's available - the 2.0 - does a fine job. So good, in fact, that it's barely worth stepping up to the alternative 2.4.

Even the cheapest Tourer, the SE, has alloy wheels, climate control, a good stereo and full safety kit, so it is hardly worth straying beyond that, although the splashes of silver-finish trim that comes with the Sport do brighten up the cabin.

The top-trim Type-S and Executive models aren't worth the bother unless they're for sale cheaply.

A mild face-lift in 2006 improved the look of the dash a touch. For top value, buy from a car supermarket.
