Finding the best deal
Heycar only offers warrantied used cars that are less than eight-years old and have less than 100,000 miles on the clock.
On Auto Trader, we don’t limit by age or mileage, which means you can search for a wider range of cars to suite any budget and needs.

Valuing your car
Heycar and Auto Trader both offer a free online car valuation to help buyers understand how much their car is worth
While Heycar estimate a range for ideal pricing for your car, Auto Trader provides an exact figure that reflects that car’s market value.
Checking vehicle history
Heycar pre-screens cars from their selected dealerships before they are listed on-site to ensure they meet their criteria.
On Auto Trader, every car undertakes a basic vehicle history check – so you can be sure it hasn’t been recorded as stolen, scrapped, imported, exported, or written off
