Safest used cars 2017

The Volkswagen Golf is one of the finest used family cars money can buy, with a comfortable ride, an upmarket interior and enough space for everyone. Throw in this impressive showing in Co-op and Thatcham’s rankings, and it makes an extremely strong case for itself.

Another strong showing for another class-leading Volkswagen, this time the Touran, which – in addition to its roomy, versatile interior and impressive driving experience, can boast high levels of safety, as proven by an admirable sixth-place finish in this table.

5. BMW 2 Series Active Tourer

It isn’t the most versatile MPV out there, but the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer makes up for that by being more interesting to drive than most MPVs. It’s also comfortable and feels high-quality inside, and as its ranking in this table shows, it’s also a safe choice, too.
