Prius is UK's fastest selling used car

The Toyota Prius is the quickest selling used car in the UK in December and is heading Glass's monthly ‘Hot Five’.Chevrolet, also their withdrawal from the UK market, also has two models in the Hot Five despite withdrawing from the UK market.

The full yop five is: Toyota Prius, Chevrolet Orlando, Chevrolet Cruze, Skoda Yeti, Audi Q3.


Commenting, Rupert Pontin, Glass's Head of Valuations, said: “There are now more Priuses available in the market but demand remains strong both from private buyers and business, with many starting to be used as taxis. The Cruze and Orlando are both great value for money but Chevrolet's withdrawal from the UK market could be part of the reason for their appearance in the Hot Five, thanks to low levels of availability and therefore increased desirability. The Audi Q3 is coming of age in used market terms with increased numbers reaching the market. It offers comfort, looks, ability and excellent build quality from a very strong brand."

Average selling price for the top five fastest selling cars is £14,782.


Glass's Hot Five is based on 300 models, all of which have been subject to more than 50 price observations over a four-week period. The set is then split by range, and an average is determined by the number of days that cars have been advertised on web portals.
