We'll stick to the more recent models here but buyers on a budget can venture back into Vauxhall history and pick up some very tidy used cars for a song. The Agila is the most compact Vauxhall these days and the one to seek out is the second generation car based on the Suzuki Splash. It's a small car that makes the most of its interior space. The Corsa is far more common on the second hand car market and the fourth generation car launched in 2006 is still one of the best superminis around - comfortable and attractively styled. The MK5 Astra as a similarly dynamic appearance, especially in three-door Sport Hatch form, and like the Corsa, it's available in VXR guise with fiery performance. The Insignia is the car that replaced the long serving Vectra and has been very well received. Pre-owned models are around in good numbers now and brisk depreciation from new makes these large medium range Mondeo-sized models very good value as second hand cars. Of course, there's loads more to Vauxhall too. Used car buyers will encounter the Meriva and Zafira MPVs, which are also available in VXR guise so you can scare the family silly, the Antara 4x4 and the cute Tigra folding metal-top coupe. Fans of used second hand muscle cars will appreciate the performance bargains that are the V8 Monaro and VXR8 coupes.
