Mitsubishi Outlander the UK’s fastest-selling used car in June

The Mitsubishi Outlander SUV (2015 diesel automatic) was the UK’s fastest-selling used car in June, according to data from Auto Trader, taking an average of 19 days to turn.

The Auto Trader results are based on how long used cars take to sell. The Outlander’s average of 19 days compares to the industry-wide average of 63 days, or a little over two months.

Mitsubishi’s success marked a popular month for larger vehicles, suggesting that bigger may indeed be better. Closely behind the Mitsubishi in the national top ten list was the Mazda CX-5 SUV, Audi A4 Avant and in fourth place, the manual version of the Mitsubishi Outlander. Breaking down the results by region, it was a similar story across the country. Of the 13 regions monitored, seven of the most popular cars were either an SUV, MPV or an estate car.

In London and the South, it was the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV plug-in electric hybrid automatic, while in the South West and Wales it was the 2015 Ford Kuga diesel manual. In the East Midlands, the 2015 Volkswagen Passant in diesel manual proved most popular, while in Scotland it was the 2016 Hyundai Tucson. The data also shows that while new diesel registration may be falling, with a 28% drop in June, used diesels are faring much better.

Karolina Edwards-Smajda, Auto Trader retailer &consumer products director, commented: “Despite what has been at times a turbulent first six months of the year, as we enter into the second half of 2018 it’s reassuring to see that consumer demand for quality used cars remains strong.”
