Vauxhall Cavalier MkIII

One of those cars that you suddenly realise is no longer on every street corner is the once ubiquitous MkIII Cavalier of 1988-95, a model that combines a pleasing driving style with good reliability and decent equipment levels. Values are still in the doldrums as it awaits attention from the classic car scene, making now a terrific time to buy.

There was no estate this time round, so take your pick from the hatch or saloon, with a good spread of engines and trim levels in each case. Find yourself an SRi or GSi and you’ll even have a cut-price Q-car on your hands.
