Motoring.co.uk's database is the natural home of the best value used cars. This extensive resource lists everything from vast four-wheel-drive leviathans to economical little city cars. Many of these vehicles have depreciated considerably since the original owners claimed the keys, so let's consider a couple of noteworthy bargains.

One of the general principles of car valuations is that originally high priced prestigious vehicles with modest badges lose value quicker than a panicking stock market. The Citroen C6 is an excellent example. Back in 2007 the standard 2.2-litre model had a list price of 28,000. This vehicle is now only worth approximately 11,500. The high-spec 2007 3.0-litre V6 Exclusive has also plummeted in value from 36,000 to roughly 13,000.

Eye-watering depreciation also affects the Volkswagen Phaeton. Straight from the factory in 2007 the Phaeton 6.0-litre W12 4MOTION (lwb) cost 73,860. This monstrous beast is now only worth a comparatively modest 27,000. That is a drop of nearly 47,000 in three years, or to put it another way - virtually the price of a new Jaguar XJ.

The final executive contender is the recently retired Peugeot 607. This Frenchman's plaything may not be particularly good to drive, but it is a good value used purchase. Shiny and new at the beginning of 2009 the top-end 3.0-litre V6 Executive cost a noteworthy 29,000. This model is today only worth a temptingly affordable 13,000.

These three vehicles are clear proof that cost conscious bargain hunters can easily source a great value used car.
