Thinking about selling your car? Car classifieds site AutoTrader.co.uk has revealed the fastest selling used cars in June 2016.
Read on to find out the hottest used motors on the market.
1: 2015 Hyundai ix35 petrol – 19 days to sell
The Hyundai ix35 represents excellent value for money on the used market – helped, no doubt, by its transferable five-year unlimited mileage warranty. That means, in petrol form, one-year-old Hyundai ix35s were the quickest cars to sell on Auto Trader last month.
2: 2015 Vauxhall Mokka petrol automatic – 21 days to sell
Vauxhall’s popular crossover isn’t exactly class-leading, but with prices on Auto Trader starting at £10,000 for year-old examples, we understand why they’re flying out of showrooms.
3: 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK diesel – 22 days to sell
It’s that time of year – everyone wants a convertible. The Mercedes-Benz SLK combines low running costs (if you choose the popular diesel) with flashy looks… what’s not to like?
4: 2009 Citroen Grand C4 Picasso diesel automatic – 22 days to sell
The Citroen Grand C4 Picasso is one of our favourite family-movers, so it’s no surprise to see it’s popular with used car buyers.
5: 2015 Ford B-Max petrol automatic – 23 days to sell
With its quirky sliding doors, the Ford B-Max is a practical mini MPV that’s also great to drive. Used car buyers are particularly keen on the petrol versions with the automatic gearbox.
6: 2010 Peugeot 3008 diesel automatic – 23 days to sell
It seems that family cars are in – with Peugeot’s 3008 crossover taking 23 days to sell on average. It’s not as good as a Nissan Qashqai, but you can probably pick one up for less…
7: 2015 Toyota Aygo petrol semi-automatic – 23 days to sell
Selling just as quickly as the Peugeot 3008, the automatic Toyota Aygo is sure to be popular with those who want an urban runabout or new drivers who don’t want the hassle of a manual gearbox.
8: 2013 Mercedes-Benz A-Class diesel – 24 days to sell
Three-year-old Mercedes-Benz A-Class diesels are likely to be ex company cars, but don’t be put off. They’ve probably covered most of their miles on the motorway and have been maintained well.
9: 2015 Ford C-Max petrol – 24 days to sell
Another popular family car, the majority of Ford C-Max people carriers are diesel – perhaps explaining why petrols sell so quickly. Don’t dismiss the 1.0-litre Ecoboost for being too small, it punches above its weight.
10: 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet diesel – 25 days to sell
Just like the Mercedes-Benz SLK, people are no doubt tempted by the E-Class Cabriolet diesel for combining practicality and low running costs with a flashy appearance and retractable roof this summer.
Region-by-region: Britain’s fastest-selling used cars
Scotland: 2014 Fiat 500 petrol – 17 days to sell
It’s also interesting to see which cars sell the quickest in each region. Buyers in different areas have very different tastes, it seems – with a Fiat 500 petrol from 2014 the quickest to sell in Scotland, for example.
North East: 2015 Nissan Juke diesel – 20 days to sell
With Nissan being such a huge employer in the area, it’s no surprise to see Nissan Jukes flying out of dealerships in the North East.
Northern Ireland: 2012 Vauxhall Corsa petrol – 35 days to sell
Four-year-old Vauxhall Corsas are popular in Northern Ireland. Has no one told them the Ford Fiesta is better..?
Yorkshire: 2009 Vauxhall Astra petrol – 23 days to sell
While in Yorkshire, used car buyers are particularly keen on the Vauxhall Astra from 2009. No, we’re not sure why either.
North West: 2015 Mercedes-Benz E-Class diesel – 22 days to sell
Buyers in the North West like a bit more flash for their cash, with diesel Mercedes-Benz E-Classes selling the quickest.
East Midlands: 2008 Vauxhall Astra petrol – 24 days to sell
What has the East Midlands got in common with Yorkshire? They both like Vauxhall Astras, apparently.
West Midlands: 2015 Mercedes-Benz A-Class diesel – 17 days to sell
While those in the West Midlands like a Mercedes-Benz A-Class diesel.
East England: 2015 Nissan Qashqai diesel – 15 days to sell
Perhaps influenced by their neighbours in the North East, the fastest selling used car in the East of England is the Nissan Qashqai diesel. It takes just 15 days to sell a used one on average.
Wales: 2015 Nissan Juke diesel – 34 days to sell
Wales loves a crossover, although it does take longer to sell a used car there. A Nissan Juke diesel takes 34 days to sell on average.
London: 2013 Nissan Qashqai petrol – 5 days to sell
Although used cars don’t hang around as long in London. There, a Nissan Qashqai petrol from 2013 is snapped up in just five days on average.
South East: 2015 Mercedes-Benz E-Class diesel – 23 days to sell
Apparently those in the South East have similar tastes to those in the North West. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class diesel is the fastest to sell on Auto Trader.
South: 2013 Audi A3 diesel – 21 days to sell
While Audi A3 diesels are hot property in the South.
South West: 2015 Vauxhall Zafira Tourer diesel – 31 days to sell
Finally, those in the South West prefer something a bit more practical – in the form of a one-year-old Vauxhall Zafira Tourer diesel. They take 31 days to sell on average. Looking to sell your car quickly? You might want to take it to London.
