UK’s fastest selling used cars revealed

BMW 3 Series

The BMW 3 Series saloon was the UK’s fastest selling used car in May, according to the latest Auto Trader data.

The 2016 petrol manual version took on average 14 days to sell, just pipping the 2016 petrol automatic Skoda Fabia and Ford Mondeo which both took 16 days to leave the forecourt.

The top ten list featured nine petrol cars in total and one electric hybrid, the 2013 Toyota Prius (automatic), which was the tenth fastest-selling car in May taking 20 days to leave the forecourt.

Echoing similar results in April’s fastest-selling data, hatchbacks performed strongly again in May, taking up six spots in the national top 10 and topping eight out of 11 regional fastest-selling lists.

“The BMW 3 Series becoming the fastest selling used car for retailers in May proves that premium models with higher price tags can leave the forecourt as quickly as average used cars by following the same retail practices,” said Karolina Edwards-Smajda of Auto Trader.
