The most popular used cars in the UK

The used car market has slowed overall in 2017, but our love for the compact car is visible when you look at the top 5 most popular used cars.

Those holding off when buying a used car may find themselves having the opportunity to grab some bargains as people struggle to sell their once new car.
What is visible, however, is you can’t go far wrong with the five cars on this list!


5) Volkswagen Golf

One of the most iconic cars on the road, the VW Golf is one of the German manufacturers most favorite cars. In 2017 more than 122,000 used Golfs have been sold in the UK and it’s clear to see why!


4) Vauxhall Astra

Truly ‘Made in Britain’ the Vauxhall Astra is made in Cheshire and offers style, fuel economy and a stable driving experience. As a used car the Astra is more popular than the Golf, but this may be due to sharp depreciation meaning second-hand buyers get a lot of car for very little money.


3) Vauxhall Corsa

The Vauxhall Corsa is a fan favorite, especially for those who are new to the road. Sporty looks, smooth interior and cheap insurance, result in many wanting to buy a Corsa on the second-hand market. Unfortunately, though, it’s not hugely popular for people buying new.


2) Ford Focus

 An attractive car with commuters and family alike, the Ford Focus has sold more than 170,000 units since the start of 2017. With a solid model range, sporty looks and efficient engines many rely on the Ford Focus to travel on a daily basis.


1) Ford Fiesta

 You can’t go far on the British roads without seeing a Ford Fiesta and, there’s a reason they’ve sold over 185,000 since the beginning of 2017. With the new Ford Fiesta MK8 on the road, you can be sure to find a few bargains on the UK’s most popular car.
