Posted by Meg Bernazzani on February 11, 2019

Ever wonder which cars sit at the top of shoppers’ wish lists? We decided to dig into our own data to find out. We looked at which makes and models were the most searched on CarGurus in each UK region, and, after analysing the data, we found that when it comes to sought-after vehicles, BMW leads the way. Its 3 Series cracked the top three in every region.

Figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders show that the best-selling used car in 2018 was the Ford Fiesta, so it’s no surprise that it was also one of the most-searched used vehicles on CarGurus. Also making the list in most regions were the Audi A3 and Nissan Qashqai.

Throughout the country, searches ranged from luxury sport utility vehicles such as Land Rover’s Range Rover Sport to affordable subcompact cars like the Ford Fiesta, and the most popular makes and models didn’t vary too much from region to region.

But, which other vehicles are popular among UK car shoppers? Check out our new interactive map for a breakdown of the top 10 most searched for used cars on CarGurus in each region. Whether you need help deciding which vehicles to add to your stock or you just want to see which vehicles are most popular in your area, it’s a great place to start!
