Which used Kia Magentis saloon should I buy?

The 168bhp 2.5 V6 is the more enjoyable drive - it's a sweet, willing engine with decent performance and fair economy. And, if you're set on a V6, get one with the auto gearbox.

However, the 136bhp 2.0-litre car makes better economic sense. It's a little gentler on fuel, insurance and servicing but, crucially, you can put it on your drive for a lot less cash. It's a reasonable drive, too.
