AUTO Trader — the UK’s largest marketplace for new and used cars — has announced the top 10 fastest selling used cars of 2016, with Kia’s 2014 Sportage taking the top spot, writes Nigel Wigmore.
It took an average of just 23 days for the compact sport utility vehicle to leave the forecourt.
The Korean company provides a seven-year warranty on all its new cars. This means that even with a 2014 model buyers can enjoy five years of the manufacturers’ warranty, which would have contributed to the Sportage’s huge appeal with used car buyers last year.
The Kia was followed into second place by the Toyota AYGO (2014), which took an average of 24 days to sell, and Nissan’s Qashqai +2 (2013) coming in third, with 25 days.
While the Qashqai (2013) wasn’t the UK’s fastest selling car of 2016, it was certainly the capital’s — taking an average of just 11 days for London dealers to sell it.
