Let’s take a look at some winter winners from this week’s classified ads
While “leaving the line” is a common railway station announcement, British roads allow you to add branches, mud, and standing water to the list as you head toward the end of 2021. All you need is a four-wheel drive detour, and we’ve chosen some non-SUV options to make your winter commute easier.
Audi A4 All Road 3.0 TDI V6 Sport Quattro, £ 8699: Our first pick is Audi’s popular A4 Avant.. The A4 Allroad joined the model range in 2009. It features a truck 20mm wider than the standard A4, adjustable air suspension, a rugged look bodywork, and a higher ground clearance. Although it does not climb the Allroad dunes or Ben Nevis, the model is equipped with specially configured electronic stability control to accommodate rugged terrain.
The interior is the same as the standard A4 Avant, but includes pet-friendly 490 liter boots with a wipeable surface. Cruise control, tri-zone climate control, electric mirrors, parking sensors and roof rails are also available for entry-level vehicles. Sport specs also bring leather-covered sports seats.
Engine options were more limited than the standard A4. Diesel was popular in the UK, with a choice of 141bhp 2.0 liter TDI, 168bhp 2.0 liter TDI, and an over-range 237bhp 3.0 liter V6 unit. There was a single petrol engine: 208bhp 2.0 liter TFSI.
We loved the look of this 2012-reg, 3.0 liter V6 sports trim for £ 8699. It completes 130,000 miles and can cost more fuel than 2.0 TDI, but can still reach 40mpg and will reach 62mph in just 6.2 seconds.
Subaru outback 2.0 D SE AWD, £ 2990: The interior is basically visible, but this 2010 144,000-mile outback comes with climate control, cruise control, and heated seats. These are all winter essentials. Its 2.0 liter diesel takes you to 62mph in less than 10 seconds, and it’s a practical, daily cargo carrier.
Volkswagen Golf R 2.0 TSI 4Motion DSG, £ 21,495: The residual value of Golf R will hold up well. In this 2014 example, 59,000 miles are under the wheels and have many additional features. The performance is also impressive. Thanks to the 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine and four-wheel drive, it will reach 62mph in 4.9 seconds.
Fiat panda 1.3 Multijet 16v 4×4 Cross, £ 5651: The UK isn’t flooded with used Panda 4×4, but we think this is one of the best. This is an example of a single owner with a complete service history and a 43,000 mile watch, for £ 5651, which is just the definition of affordable off-road.
Ariel nomads 2.4 £ 58,000: Probably not suitable for daily commuting during this time, but it’s certainly a fun four-wheel drive vehicle. This one owner, a 2018-registered nomad, is currently sitting in the collection, traveling 6000 miles and looks pristine. One on the weekend.
Morris mini Shorty: This “Shorty” example is a modification of the Morris Mini 1000, a rare “saloon” shell from 1968. Originally a cream-colored exterior paint, it has recently undergone a complete respray and body repair, including a rust-resistant underseal. Its leather seats have been re-trimmed and the dashboard is mostly standard. Mechanically, it’s also largely healthy and interferes with some gearshift issues. The full photo document shows the restoration, but few documents other than V5. Nonetheless, Shorty sold for £ 10,000 at auction, but the number of inches per pound isn’t bad.
Suzuki Ignis, £ 7750: Is it an SUV or a city car? Maybe both. But that ambiguity aside, the appeal of the model goes far beyond its affordability. The Ignis features 260 liter boots (reduced to 204 liters for the Allgrip model), an optional four-wheel drive Allgrip system, and the ability to comfortably ferry four adults, making it more versatile than the appearance suggests. It’s wide.
Despite all this, it’s not too far from size Fiat 500.. Powered by an 89bhp 1.2 liter Dualjet engine, the kit level is decent. An example of 2017 was found in a £ 7750 job ad on a 21,000 mile watch.

“Find a pickup that costs less than £ 20,000, but be nice and cool.”
Oliver Young: Starski and Hatch will be very proud of my choice. It’s a Ford Ranchero, a muscle car-based pickup that checks all the cool car boxes. Is it a head-turning classic? It’s from the 70’s, so of course it is. Do you have a charismatic engine? The American V8 is positively full of charm and charisma. Is it a Hollywood movie star car? With such a road, I wouldn’t be surprised if LA called. This is all a practical pickup. It’s unbelievable.
Mark Pearson: What on earth is it? It can not be helped. At least I chose James as a cultural, delicate and thoroughly practical pickup. This lovely 1951 Randy is desperately cool and beautiful. Great for driving, sophisticated, spacious, economical and very practical. In fact, this is one of the best cars ever made. And it is highly valued.
OY: It’s barely a pickup, Mark. Moreover, it looks like a death machine. I think potholes are enough to cause a catastrophe. Does it sound cool to you?
MP: You are very strict with my Randy. Like the Mercedes SL, it’s a truly luxurious convertible. And with its Lexus-like ride quality, you won’t have to worry about potholes.
OY: Well, if your Randy is really a luxury convertible, you therefore failed the briefs. My collectable classic for Ford Ranchero wins by default.
MP: Oh, the default shmeefault!
Verdict, James Rupert: Ranchero? I didn’t see it coming, but absolutely everyone would hear the V8 from 5 miles away. Great flat bed too.
