Fastest selling cars in the UK

Us Brits love our cars, and we quite often look to cash in our older models for something a bit more up to date. Many of us look to sell a car online and then pick up a new model as quick as we can, but what is the fastest selling car in the UK?

It has been revealed that the fastest selling car in the UK is none other than a Kia Sportage, with a petrol-powered 2015 Kia Sportage SUV taking an average of 13 days to sell with an average retail price of £15,649.

The same statistics also found that other versions of the SUV were very popular, taking the second and fourth spot for fastest selling cars, both only taking 18 days from being listed and finding a new home.

So what is the appeal with the Sportage?

The Sportage has often been described as having decent room on the inside, with high quality equipment coming as standard. The seven-year warranty provided by Kia on all of its new cars is also a big pull to many consumers. Picking up a 2013 model means you will still have four years of security from the warranty.

The fastest selling cars in the UK show a variety of different body styles including SUV’s and people carriers, with the 2013 Volkswagen Passat Estate still remaining a popular choice, for example. The quickest selling cars do vary depending on region, with the top five quickest selling cars in London all being BMW’s.
