Fastest selling used car | June 2019

Citroen Grand C4 Picasso paints a pretty picture as UK’s fastest selling used car in June

  • Citroen kicks off the summer with family favourite MPV flying off UK forecourts
  • 2018 Citroen Grand C4 Picasso petrol manual takes an average of just 18 days to sell
  • Car buyers are summer holiday ready with MPVs, SUVs and estates fastest selling used body types

The Citroen Grand C4 Picasso (2018 petrol manual) has been crowned June’s fastest selling used car, taking an average of just 18 days to leave UK forecourts.

In a sign of consumer anticipation for family driving holidays this summer, the national list of fastest-sellers was dominated by MPVs, SUVs and estates, making up eight of the top 10. And reflecting the British optimism for a sunny summer, the 2016 BMW Z4 (petrol automatic) convertible took the third spot, with a very respectable average of 22 days to sell.

On the Auto Trader marketplace, estates were the most popular body types, making up one in five (21%) of all body type searches in June, followed by SUVs which accounted for 17%.

June firmly belonged to the French family favourite MPV. Not only did the Grand C4 Picasso take first place nationally, but it secured top 10 positions across a number of the 13 regions and countries tracked: North West (2018 diesel manual - 28 days), Scotland (2018 diesel manual - 14 days and 2016 diesel manual - 17 days), Wales (2018 diesel manual - 19 days), West Midlands (2018 diesel manual - 22 days and 2016 diesel manual - 25 days) and Yorkshire (2018 diesel manual - 20 days).

Elsewhere, Citroen rounded off a successful start to the summer with its C1 city car topping the list in both Scotland (2017 petrol manual - 10 days) and the North East (2017 petrol manual - 20 days).

Karolina Edwards-Smajda, Auto Trader’s Director of Commercial Products, said: “We naturally often see seasonal trends and spikes on our marketplace, with car buyers heavily influenced by the weather. However, keeping on track with changing consumer demands and ensuring your forecourt reflects the most desirable makes, marques and body types is not always easy. Using data to help complement your own expertise can not only help drive more sales, quicker and for more profit, but also give your business a competitive advantage.”
