These are the best pre-owned cars in South Africa

Gumtree has published its list of winners for the Pre-Owned Car Awards for 2017.

The cars were selected through careful cooperation with data partner TransUnion, and were determined using an analysis of  like the retail price, value retention and age range.

The finalists were then put through rigorous road tests in order to provide our final judging panel (consisting of leading motoring journalists and industry experts) with comprehensive information about the physical performance and appearance of the various vehicles.
