Which used Honda Accord saloon should I buy?

There's nothing in the line-up that you'd call duff. However, the low-end models are so well equipped and capable that we can't see sense in spending extra. All have alloy wheels, climate control, and a CD player. What's more, each is bursting with airbags and safety kit.

It's perhaps worth moving up from the entry-level SE to the Sport, if only to brighten up the cabin, but there's little to tempt you higher into the Type-S or Executive. In fact, the leather seats in the top models only make you notice other cheap-looking bits of the cabin.

The base model with its 2.0-litre petrol engine packs enough go, but it's the 2.2 diesel that's the real star: smooth, quick and a fuel-sipper.

Otherwise, there's a 2.4 but it's available only with the Type-S or Executive trims. An excellent five-speed auto gearbox is an option across the range that you might want to track down.

Buy from car supermarkets for lowest prices.
