We've done some research and collated together how the used car industry has performed in comparison to 2019. And we also reveal the Top 10 Models and Colours that were bought in 2020. 

Top 10 Cars of 2020

We checked out the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) Used Car Sales in the last quarter of the year, and have found out some interesting stats…

The UK’s used car market declined in 2020 as the number of cars being bought fell by 1,182,146 in comparison to 2019. This rounds of 2020 as the lowest performing year since 2012 as lockdown swept the nation creating it impossible to predict customer spend and the viability for businesses to open and sell. 

However, if you did buy a car, did you choose from the top 10 choices in 2020? 


Top 10 Models in 2020: 

  1. Ford Fiesta 

  2. Vauxhall Corsa 

  3. Ford Focus 

  4. Volkswagen Golf 

  5. Vauxhall Astra 

  6. BMW 3 Series 

  7. MINI 

  8. Volkswagen Polo 

  9. Mercedes C Class 

  10. Audi A3 


Top 10 Colours in 2020: 

  1. Black 

  2. Silver/Aluminium 

  3. Blue 

  4. Grey 

  5. White

  6. Red

  7. Green

  8. Orange

  9. Beige/Buff

  10. Yellow 


The more unconventional car colours didn't quite make the Top 10: 

  1. Pink 

  2. Turquoise

  3. Gold
