Dermot Kelleher, director of marketing and business intelligence at Motors.co.uk, said: “Once again, the nation remains consistent with its choice of the top five most popular used cars, which is broadly reflective of the position for new car sales as well.”
“However, we have seen changes lower down the table, with the Fiat 500 entering for the first time and the BMW 3 Series increasing in popularity during May.”
“The rising stars outside the top 10 included city cars, the Skoda Citigo and VW Up! alongside the mid-size luxury SUV Lexus RX. In addition, the summer sunshine, which started to rear its head in May, has prompted an increase in searches and sales for a number of convertible models, most notably the BMW 1 Series, Mazda MX-5 and Mercedes Benz SLK.”
