4. Volkswagen Golf SV

Another remarkably sharp MPV to drive, the Volkswagen Golf SV may only boast five seats, but those five passengers get masses of space and a usefully large boot to stow their luggage. It’s classy inside, too, and with this high a ranking in the Safe Used Car Awards, it should look after you and your passengers should anything go wrong out on the road.

We found: 2014 2.0 TDI SE Auto, 20,500 miles, Β£12,950

3. Toyota Auris

While the Toyota Auris isn’t the most exciting used car in the world, it does offer an impressive reputation for reliability, along with a good slug of comfort and build quality. It’s great value, too, and what’s more, you can get it with a hybrid powertrain, which is efficient around town – and as this result shows, it’s one of the safest used family cars around.

We found: [2014 1.6 Icon, 21,000 miles, Β£8498[(https://www.whatcar.com/classifieds/approved-used-cars/toyota/auris/toyota-auris-1-6-v-matic-icon-5dr/7278986)

2. Mazda 3

The Mazda 3’s biggest selling point is that it’s great fun to drive, with sharp handling and responsive engines. However, it also manages to be efficient, reliable and well built – and as this second-place result shows, it’s safer than almost every other used family car you can buy.

We found: 2014 2.0 SE, 29,032 miles, Β£9498
