Tucson makes it three consecutive months as UK’s fastest selling used car
The Hyundai Tucson petrol SUV and Vauxhall Crossland X were the joint fastest selling used vehicles across the UK in May 2019 according to data from Indicata, part of Autorola UK.

The Hyundai Tucson, which also took top spot in March and April as well as second spot in February, took an average of 35 days to sell at an average price of £16,372. Its diesel equivalent featured in joint 10th position, taking an average of 47 days to sell at a price of £16,382.

Joining the Tucson in joint first position was the Vauxhall Crossland X petrol SUV - its first appearance in the top 10 - taking an average 35 days to sell at an average price of £12,221. In second place was the petrol Kia Sportage SUV selling in 38 days at an average price of £17,329, followed by the Mercedes-Benz A-Class petrol hatchback in third selling in an average 39 days at a price of £19,669.

At the opposite end of the Indicata data, the slowest selling used cars were the petrol Nissan Micra (79 days), the diesel Vauxhall Insignia (73 days) and the petrol Audi A3 (68 days).

A total of 83,458 used car sales were captured within the Indicata system during May.

Overall, petrol powertrains and SUVs continued to dominate the top 10 data with nearly 70% petrol variants and more than 60% SUVs.

Neil Gilligan, national business development manager, Indicata UK explained, ‘The data continues to highlight the strength of the market right now with average days to sell remaining at their lowest – 35 days – since the turn of the year. Petrol powertrains also continue to dominate the top 10, making up nearly 70% of the list, and 100% of the top five.’

Neil continued, ‘SUVs really do continue to be a driver of the market, making up over 60% of the top 10 fastest selling list in both petrol and diesel variants. And the entry, in joint 10th position, of the Jaguar F-Pace at an average price of £35,822 proves just how much in demand this sector of the market is and the importance of the used sector in providing buyer choice throughout the market.’
