But, let us have a look at two of the quality-approved second-hand cars that are particularly popular today.

Volkswagen Polo Vivo

The Polo Vivo is officially the top-selling vehicle range in South Africa, closely followed by its larger Polo sibling. With the Volkswagen brand, you know you get quality. The 2014 model came out with a range of new features. The design differs slightly from previous versions when it comes to the radiator grille and headlight layout. Trendline models also received colour-coded exterior rear-view mirrors as part of the upgrade. Of course, the upgrade would not have been complete without some updates to the interior and instrument panel as well. Another new and very useful Trendline feature to keep in mind if you are particularly short or tall is the height-adjustable driver seat. This model also features a remotely controlled central lock system and the very important safety feature of an ABS braking system and the added peace of mind of an immobiliser and alarm system.

The Polo Vivo provides an absorbent ride and safe, stable handling. In addition, build quality is roundly praised and it is one of the only vehicles in the budget class with a plush soft-touch upper dashboard panel. Its maintenance costs are also eminently reasonable. The hatchback’s boot space is competitive, but the sedan’s enormous boot makes it a great car for families, travellers, students and anyone who does not want to have to put valuables on the back seat because of a small boot. The 1,4 Trendline has the basic features of a radio with SD card slot and MP3 and Bluetooth functions, airbags for the driver and passenger, and air-conditioning. Optional extras include alloy wheels, upgrading of the alarm to an ultrasonic alarm, and cruise control. If you thus find one of the Vivo 1,4 Trendlines among our portfolio of quality-approved second-hand cars with any of the extras, you should know that it will not be around before being snapped up by an eager buyer.

Volkswagen Up!

Another contender in the entry-level price range is the new Volkswagen Up!, which made its local debut in February 2015 as a 3-door hatchback, with the 5-door model launched in May 2016. In the meantime, the 3-door model has been discontinued. It has four seats and is compact, in line with European car style trends. It is well-suited to students, first-time car buyers, people who want an extra vehicle for city driving, and those who want something fuel efficient. It has a distinctive, modern interior and although it does not have all the features of expensive vehicles, the interior is surprisingly spacious and stylish. The lighter colour shades used on the door panels and dashboard give a more spacious feel to the interior. With a straightforward dash layout, the main priority was certainly practicality, but the solid design impresses with its sophistication and quality. It does give a familiar feel for the driver, with a central module on the dash for air-conditioning control and the CD/radio system, with two speakers.

The steering height can be adjusted and the car has electric windows and Electronic Stability Control (ESP) and ABS brakes as standard. Optional features which, if fitted to a second-hand Up! will mean it has added value, include cruise control, multi-functional display, front fog lights, heated front seats, electrically adjustable mirrors, park distance control, and a panoramic sunroof. The boot holds 251 litres, but do not be fooled with the small space. If you need more, simply increase the space to a whopping 951 litres by folding the rear seats flat. Additional storage space is available in the doors for small items. It also has cup holders for the rear seats.
