The new car market can be tricky to navigate but, as always, Carbuyer is here to help. The very first group of Carbuyer Best Buys has just been announced, giving visitors to the Carbuyer.co.uk website an instant, no-nonsense verdict on the best cars to buy today.
The Carbuyer Best Buys are the best cars to buy in each sector of the car market and the very first models to be given Best Buy status have just been announced. These chosen few will be constantly re-evaluated as challengers arrive on the scene, with new cars eligible for a Best Buy badge if they make the grade.
It all means that readers can head to the Carbuyer Best Buy page for an instant view of the cars recommended in each class by Carbuyer’s team of experts.
The Carbuyer Best Buys are split into nine core categories, giving a simplified overview of the market to help the average UK car buyer find the vehicles that most closely suit their needs. The categories recognise that buyers may be shopping across a range of sectors, rather than in the traditional segments.
The number of cars named in each Best Buys segment varies; in some cases one or two standout models are recommended and in others several cars are awarded Best Buy status to reflect their individual merits for different types of buyer. At the end of the year, the Best Buys will form the basis of the shortlist for the Carbuyer Best Car Awards, where Carbuyer names its cars of the year across 20 different categories…
In all cases, the cars listed as Best Buys are constantly under review as prices and specifications change, and as new models arrive to claim Best Buy status. At all times, the Carbuyer Best Buys will represent the best cars to buy in the UK in each class.
