Have you been thinking about changing your car lately? Good news; there has never been a better time to upgrade than right now, with an abundance of new and used cars to choose from on the market. We have compiled a list of some of the best new and used cars to consider with a budget ranging from €10,000 to €50,000. Whether you are searching for a humble hatchback, a spacious SUV or even a sporty two door roadster, there is a car in this list to suit you.


Best new cars

Dacia Sandero: The first car on our list is incidentally the most affordable new car for sale in Ireland right now. Prices for the new Dacia Sandero start from just €10,690, and despite its bargain basement price, it is a well-equipped, efficient and roomy hatchback. The Sandero is available with both petrol and diesel engines, along with various specifications and optional extras. 

Hyundai Tucson: As Ireland’s best-selling new car in 2016 and 2017, it is only right that the Hyundai Tucson makes our new car shortlist. Prices for the new Tucson start from €26,245 and it’s easy to see why it is such a popular choice, with stylish looks, a spacious and family-friendly cabin and also a range of frugal diesel engines to consider. 

Volkswagen Golf: Each year, the Volkswagen Golf consistently ranks as one of Ireland’s best-selling new cars and early last year it received a mid-life update. The Golf has a reputation for being one of the highest quality hatchback cars too, with handsome styling and a practical cabin to boot. Prices for the Golf start from €20,895 in base specification, and there are various powerful petrol and diesel engines to choose from. 

Skoda Kodiaq: The Skoda Kodiaq is a new seven seat SUV with lots of style and plenty of space for growing families. Demand has been incredibly high for the Kodiaq since it arrived in Ireland mid-last year as it is undoubtedly one of the most affordable seven-seater SUVs on the market. Prices for the new Skoda Kodiaq start from €28,795 in Ireland, with petrol and diesel variants to choose from. 

Mercedes E-Class: The new Mercedes E-Class Saloon is a striking option with lots of road presence, and it stays within our budget with prices starting from €48,200. Few cars combine luxury and comfort quite like the E-Class, and it has become one of the most popular executive car choices in recent years. The E-Class has a class-leading 2.0-litre diesel engine and lots of futuristic technology, so if your budget allows, it’s definitely one to shortlist!

Mazda MX-5: Those seeking an affordable two-seater roadster with lots of style and driving thrills, should consider the latest Mazda MX-5. Of all the cars listed here, the MX-5 tops the charts for being the most fun to drive, and what’s more, when the weather is good simply drop the roof! Prices for the MX-5 start from €27,995, and it is a lot of car for the money. Despite its sporty looks, the MX-5 is quite affordable to run also.
Best used cars


Best used cars

BMW 5 Series: A new BMW 5 Series went on sale in Ireland in 2017, but the previous generation model makes for an excellent used car purchase. Available in Saloon, Touring Estate and Gran Turismo versions, the 5 Series has powerful diesel engines, lots of advanced technology and a superb drive out on the road. You could drive away in a 2014-registered BMW 5 Series for circa €25,000 with low mileage and a full-service history. 

Nissan Qashqai: The second-generation Nissan Qashqai went on sale in 2014 and it has been a popular used car choice with family buyers. With its handsome SUV looks, more space in the cabin and boot and incredibly comfy seats, the Qashqai continues to be one of the best-selling used cars in Ireland and it offers low day to day running costs too. A low mileage 2016 model can be purchased for around €22,000 with lots of optional extras too. 

Audi A4: The Audi A4 offers premium looks and an incredibly comfortable drive to match, and it is available with a comprehensive choice of engines and Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system. The A4’s diesel engines are powerful and economical, with a superbly comfy interior too. Thanks to a high desirability factor too, the A4 also offers rock solid residual values. Expect to pay in the region of €23,000 for a well-specced 2015 model with low mileage. 

Ford Focus: The Ford Focus is well-known for being one of the best family cars to drive and the latest third generation model represents great value as a used purchase. The most popular version is undoubtedly the 1.6-litre diesel Focus, and there is even a high-performance ST-version which offers driving thrills out on the road.  Prices for the Focus vary, but a nearly-new 2017 example can be sourced for under €20,000. 

Ford Mustang: Have you ever dreamt of owning a Ford Mustang? Well now is your chance! The latest Ford Mustang was released in early 2016 and it is probably one of the most aspirational used cars for sale in Ireland right now! Striking and eye-catching in every way, a used 2016 model for sale from an authorised dealership will set you back in the region of €39,000 for the 2.3-litre ecoboost model. That is a hell of a lot of car for the money.
