Mercedes delivers a five-star used car performance in September reports Indicata
September reported the fastest-selling used car with the highest average price recorded so far in 2019 according to market insights from Indicata, part of Autorola.

The Mercedes E-Class diesel priced at an average £24,631 was September’s fastest selling used car alongside the Hyundai Tucson petrol (£16,180), both staying in dealer stock on average for 44 days before being sold.

This was one day less than in August, as the volume of used cars sold recorded on the Indicata platform rose to 93,569, the third highest monthly figure in 2019.

Mercedes was the best performing used car brand in September with four cars - the E-Class diesel, A-Class petrol, GLA-Class and GLC-Class diesel all in the top 10.

“Dealers reported that September was a very busy used car month, alongside a much quieter new car market,” explained Neil Gilligan, Indicata UK’s business development manager.

“Mercedes had an amazing month with many of its models in high demand. Diesel saloons and SUVs like the E-Class and the GLC performed well, reinforcing our theory that diesel engines are still the preferred option at the larger end of the market,” he added.

As with recent months smaller SUVs like the petrol Vauxhall Mokka and Crossland, Ford EcoSport, Peugeot 3008 and Renault Captur all made the top 10.
