2019s Fastest Selling Used Cars

Author: Sam Allibone


Data retrieved by Indicata UK has revealed which vehicles sell the fastest on the used car market.

EcoSport - The Best Selling Used Car in February 2019

The survey analysed 98,500 used cars sold in February 2019. 60% of the top 10 run on petrol, leaving diesels with a 40% market share.

“The used market’s popular stock is moving more quickly than in January, with demand apparently unaffected by Brexit. Our fuel type analysis made for interesting reading as used petrols are in higher demand on smaller cars, with used diesels preferred in larger SUVs where fuel consumption and overall running costs are improved,” explained Neil Gilligan, national business development manager for Indicata UK.

In the top spot for the fastest-selling used car is the Ford EcoSport. On average, it takes 44 days to sell – down 4 days from January 2019. The price the compact SUV commonly fetches is £14,065, up £158 in the same period. Gilligan commented “The Ford EcoSport continues to show its popularity as a used car, while SUVs and smaller hatchbacks continue as the most in-demand pre-owned models”.

In second place is the Hyundai Tucson, at 46 days to sell for an average price of £16,709. German car-maker Mercedes-Benz take third place with their premium SUV, the GLC, which takes 47 days to sell for the price of £32,106. Drivers looking for a cheaper alternative pay on average £24,433 for the Volkswagen Tiguan, which sells after 48 days on the market. Renault's supermini, the Clio, comes in fifth place, taking on average 49 days to sell, going for over £10,000.
