The most popular used cars of 2017 revealed

Motoring Research Logo By Richard Aucock of Motoring Research | Slide 1 of 15: Unlike the new car market, used car sales continued to do well in 2017. Although overall transactions were down slightly, a 1.1 percent fall was a much smaller decline than the hefty 5.7 percent decline in new cars sales. A total of 8,113,020 used cars changed hands in 2017 – which still ensured last year was the second-highest year of secondhand car sales on record. It’s superminis that continue to lead the way. One in three used cars is a supermini hatch such as the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa. They weren’t the fastest-growing used car sector, though: SUVs lead the way there, with 9.5 percent more used sales in 2017. City cars also grew 4.3 percent. Here, we reveal some of the details behind the data - including which was Britain’s most popular used car of 2017. Any guesses? Buy a used car near you on Auto Trader
