As consumers embrace the crossover market, people-carriers are becoming ever less popular. As a result, some of the greatest used car bargains can sit in this sector, and when it comes to value, few cars can compete with the second-generation Kia Carens. It offered a huge amount for the money when new, and strong depreciation has ensured that on the used market you get even more bang for your buck. Look beyond the clunky styling and you'll find a car that's comfortable with ample space for the family - so if you're after maximum practicality for minimum outlay, take a closer look.

Kia Carens

If you want exclusivity, forget about buying a Ferrari or Porsche; there's one of those on every street corner. No, what you want is one of these - have you ever even heard of the Cerato, never mind seen one? An interim model that lasted less than two years in the UK, the Focus-sized Cerato isn't a bad car, but it's also not as good as the vehicles this Korean company is now churning out. At the right price though, the Cerato is well worth a look.

When the original Picanto arrived in 2004 it marked the start of a new era for the Korean company. So when its successor was launched in 2011 expectations were high, and we weren't disappointed. The Picanto went straight to the top of the pile, with its smart looks, big-car feel, strong equipment levels and generous seven-year warranty, all at a very affordable price. So if you're looking for a small used car the Kia Picanto should be on your shortlist, especially if you need an urban runabout, as its small, manoeuvrable and nippy plus most come with free road tax to help cut running costs.

Full-size 4x4s have a habit of being costly to buy and run, but it doesn't always have to be that way, as the Kia Sorento proves. What the Sorento lacks in image it more than makes up for in terms of value; not only is it packed with kit (especially if you buy something that's at least mid-range), but asking prices are much lower than for premium alternatives. An accomplished tow car - especially if you opt for one of the four-wheel drive editions - the Sorento's four-cylinder engine isn't as muscular as the six-cylinder units available elsewhere. And while some rivals have classier cabins, as an all-round package the Sorento is hard to beat.

It was the original Picanto that showed Kia's potential, but when the third-generation Sportage appeared in 2010 the Korean manufacturer realised that potential. This sharp-looking SUV came with concept car looks, a long warranty, generous equipment levels and a healthy dose of practicality - yet it was every bit as affordable as you'd expect a Kia to be. Accounting for around a quarter of Kia's sales in the UK, when the Sportage Mk3 was current it was the company's biggest-selling model and it's not hard to see why. As a used buy the Sportage is just as enticing.

If ever there was a car that turned round a company's fortunes it was the Picanto, which proved Kia was capable of producing genuinely great cars. With its relatively generous equipment levels, spacious cabin and generally excellent build quality, the Picanto is surprisingly good to drive too, while running costs are commendably low. Most Picanto owners have also enjoyed excellent reliability too; it's no wonder the Picanto is so sought after.

The original Kia Rio of 2001 was underwhelming and the second take that arrived in 2005 was disappointing too. But it was a case of third time lucky when the third iteration appeared in 2011; at last Kia had an impressive small hatch in its line-up. Gone were the awkward looks, dated interiors and so-so dynamics, replaced by a sharply styled supermini with a modern interior, excellent engines and a much-improved driving experience. The Rio won't excite enthusiast drivers as there was no sporty edition, but as dependable great-value transport it has everything you need. Even better, thanks to the posher models also being the most popular, there's no shortage of high-spec Rios available, dripping with standard kit.

After the mediocre first-generation Sportage, Kia's second take on the model was a massive improvement. Chunkier looks, a decent diesel engine, OK dynamics and plenty of standard kit made the Sportage a tempting proposition. It wasn't class leading, but when it came to reliability, few 4x4s had a better reputation. It's handy in the rough too, and offers plenty of cabin space, so if you're looking for a 4x4 and you're not out to impress anyone, check out the Sportage.
