We’ll be the first to admit that the Ghibli isn’t as slick as an Mercedes E-Class or BMW 5 Series, but this stylish Maserati is a car that you can get emotionally attached to, so you’re buying with your head as well as your heart. 

Unsurprisingly, all Ghiblis emphasise performance over economy, although there is a hybrid edition, but we couldn’t find any for sale at this price. Instead it’s a choice between petrol and diesel V6s.

Porsche Panamera Mk1

  • We found: 3.0 diesel auto, 2015, 59k miles – £24,995
  • Years produced: 2009-2016
  • Engines available: 3.0T, 3.6, 4.8, 4.8T petrol, 3.0 diesel, 3.0 hybrid, 3.0 PHEV

It’s already 15 years since the Porsche Panamera arrived; it’s a car that shook things up within the luxury car sector, and which has become a lot more affordable to those who want to taste the high life, but don’t have incredibly deep pockets. 

In typical Porsche fashion, all Panameras are seriously quick, handle superbly and have a fabulous interior that’s crammed with expensive materials. But also true to form, running costs tend to be high, even if you go for one of the unusual plug-in hybrids or a diesel. The latter makes the most sense and is the most readily available for less than £25k.

Kia EV6 Mk1

  • We found: 77.4kWh GT-Line auto, 2022, 24k miles – £28,500
  • Years produced: 2021 to date
  • Powertrain available: 77.4kWh

The rate at which Kia’s standing has climbed with UK buyers is astonishing, and nowhere is this more evident than with the EV6, a car which cost more than £40k when it was launched in spring 2021. 

But compared with its rivals, the EV6 was a bargain, thanks to its hi-tech interior and a huge 77.4kWh battery that promised a real-world range of around 300 miles. With fast charging (up to 230kW) and plenty of power (at least 226bhp), the EV6 is very usable and looks superb. And for less than £30,000 you can buy a 2022 EV6 GT-Line that’s done just 20,000 miles.
