Used buyers heading for family cars

Big value, family cars dominate Glass's Hot Five of the fastest selling used models in the UK for September so far – but a milder than expected month sees the appearance of one convertible in the shape of the Peugeot 307CC.

The Chevrolet Orlando heads the list and, along with the second-placed Dacia Duster, has been ever-present in the Hot Five for the last few months. In third place is the rare Mazda5 MPV while the Peugeot 307CC coupe-cabriolet takes fourth. Rounding off the list is another family favourite, the Ford Grand C-Max.

Rupert Pontin, Glass's Head of Valuations, comments: “This Hot Five covers one of the slowest used car periods of the year but the results show that buyers are still very much in the market if practical family cars are available at the right price. The continued presence of models like the Chevy Orlando and Dacia Duster, as well as the Mazda5 and Ford C-Max this month, show that the most in-demand cars continue to be those that present the best value”.
