Britain’s safest used family cars for less than £15,000 have been named, with the Volvo V40 fitted with the optional Safety Pack topping the listings.
The cars were selected by safety experts Thatcham Research as part of a study into used car safety conducted by Co-Op Insurance.
All cars chosen have a five-star Euro NCAP rating, CO2 emissions of 120g/km or less and are available to purchase on the secondhand market for £15,000. They were then evaluated further on crash-worthiness, including ratings for adult, child and pedestrian protection and the availability of Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB).
The UK’s top 10 safest used family cars according to the study were:
1. Volvo V40 (2012)
2. Volkswagen Golf (2012)
3. Nissan Qashqai (2014)
4. Peugeot 308 (2013)
5. Vauxhall Astra (2015)
