The UK’s used car market is going from strength to strength at present, with thousands of vehicles changing hands every month.

As such, Auto Express has published its new ‘Driver Power Best Used Car 2019’ survey and highlighted the models that are standing out from the crowd at present.

Exemplary scores for the Sportage

The motoring public can be a fickle bunch, but when a model captures their imagination it’s sure to make waves across the motoring sector.

That’s precisely the case with the Kia Sportage, which wowed consumers across all categories and achieved an outstanding overall score of 92.78 per cent – placing it atop the list of best used cars in 2019.

Hugo Griffiths, consumer editor for Auto Express, stated: “The Sportage put in a peerless performance, taking the top spot in four of the nine individual Driver Power categories, with owners praising its comfort, practicality and infotainment systems in particular.”

Overall, Kia performed excellently in this year’s rankings, with the Sorrento also listed in third position with an equally impressive score of 91.49 per cent. It was described by owners as being “comfortable, relaxed and spacious”.

Heather Stark, brand manager at The Fuelcard People, comments: “The Sportage has built a reputation for being reliable, economical and extremely popular among the buying public, so it’s no surprise to see the model at the top of the list for best used cars in the UK this year.”
