The ULEZ (Ultra Low Emissions Zone) expands to include all London boroughs on 29 August 2023. After that date, your petrol or diesel car will have to meet certain emissions standards to drive within those areas, otherwise you'll need to fork up £12.50 on a daily basis.

Fortunately, petrol cars registered after 2005 and diesel ones after 2015 are generally ULEZ compliant – although it's always best to check – so your pride and joy could be safe. If not, you might feel inclined to swap your car and for that reason we've compiled a list of the best ULEZ-compliant options from the used market, all of which can be found on our Used Car Buying pages.
