Ex­pect some move­ment in the mar­ket with the im­mi­nent ar­rival of the new Mk3 Swift Sport and some own­ers look­ing to trade up. This might cause Mk2 val­ues to weaken in the short term, al­though en­thu­si­asts be­lieve the nat­u­rally as­pi­rated cars will main­tain a fol­low­ing.

As for how much, right now you might be lucky and find a high-mileage 2012 car for as lit­tle as £5k. As we’ve seen, high miles shouldn’t put you off, pro­vided the car you’re con­sid­er­ing has been well looked af­ter. Ex­am­ples from 2012/2013 are gen­er­ally £5.5k-7k de­pend­ing on mileage. Av­er­age-mileage 2014/2015 cars are £7.5k-9k, with late, low-mileage ex­am­ples (less than 10,000 miles) cur­rently around £10k.
