Choice of used car

Opel Corsa 2019 – now

Opel has a delicate design, but it easily emerges from other traffic. The front seats can be supported sufficiently to fit the pedestrian drivers. There is not much space behind. Performance is sufficient for normal use. As long as you do not just walk around the city, you will discover the use of 1 in 17. The brand dealer in Huizen has a red ‘Edition’ of 1.2 (2020, 10,000 km) for € 14,950.

Renault Clio 2019 – now

As a family car, the Renault is bigger than it is. A full digital dashboard takes time to get used to, but after a week you don’t want anything else. On the road, the Clio is pretty comfortable; it leads and moves well and is relatively quiet. With the TCe100 gasoline engine, 1 to 18 is possible for alternative use. The highly black TCe100 (2021, 17,500 km) is available from Renault dealer in Leeuwarden for € 14,990.

Toyota Yaris 2017 – 2020

There is still a lot to be said for Yaris of the ‘old’ model. The 1.5 standard runs smoothly, with a six-speed gearbox with an average consumption of 1 to 17. The hybrid version, however, is more economical. The cargo section is the largest of the three by 347 liters. We would choose 1.5 blue (2019, 19,000 km), which sells for € 14,900 in a car dealership in Nieuwer ter Aa.

Road Support Decision

Opel Corsa

The current Opel Corsa is closely related to the Peugeot 208. The 1.2-liter three-cylinder petrol engine is considered to be very reliable if you have a well-maintained small family car. It is very important to use engine oil of the correct dimensions. ‘Cheap’ oil can cost you a lot!

Renault Clio

For this generation of Clio, Road Support has limitations that still sometimes occur. Dashboard that rejects service appears to be very bad. Especially because Renault also doesn’t want to start. Fortunately, it is the only software problem that Road Assistance can solve with simple reset.

Toyota Yaris

This type of Yaris is registered by Wegenwacht as problem-free. Period!

Our advice

Toyota is of the highest quality, but the other two are certainly not bad. Corsa certainly attracts a very broad audience. As a family car, we would still choose Clio because of its comfort of driving.
