The Ford Mondeo is the car from which people in the UK get the most use, according to new research.

A study from Warranty Direct found that a Mondeo owner typically gets around 15,000 miles from their car each year.

Other models found to be used regularly include the Renault Laguna and Saab 9-5, while the company found the Daewoo Matiz to be the vehicle on the market used the least.

This research could prove invaluable to car insurance customers when they choose to pick up a new vehicle, commented Duncan McClure Fisher from Warranty Direct.

"For example, you may find a four-year-old Nissan Micra with 30,000 miles on the clock and think it's a low mileage machine but in reality it's just the average," said the official.

This comes as Carcraft earlier this year found that the Ford Mondeo has depreciated in value by 51 per cent, making it the best value used vehicle on the market.
