Going up – going down

GLASS'S experts give the lowdown on what’s selling and what’s sitting

Going up

OLD MODEL FORD FOCUS

A strong recovery of prices for the darling of the used car market. Late plate examples have recovered by £500 since Christmas

OLD MODEL VAUXHALL ASTRA

Representing good value, late plate examples are helped by the much higher prices being commanded for the new generation Astra

VAN-DERIVED SECTOR

It’s bucking expectations – Partner, Kangoo, Berlingo, and Doblo are all holding their own in the market

Going down

BLAND MASS MARKET CARS

Daewoos of any description, Mitsubishi Carisma, Chrysler Neon and Fiat Marea are all under-performing in the three-year-old market
