NEW RESEARCH REVEALS THE UK'S MOST POPULAR USED CARS

NEW RESEARCH REVEALS THE UK'S MOST POPULAR USED CARS

25/04/2022 17:28:15

Used car prices rose by almost a third (30.5%) in December 2021 on a year-on-year and like-for-like basis. New research by Zuto has uncovered the nations favourite make and model of car to buy second-hand, from a Vauxhall Corsa to a Ford Fiesta. Vauxhall and Ford take up the top 4 spots for both men and the women, making them the clear favourites for UK drivers as a whole. Audi and Volkswagen were also popular choices making an appearance in both of the top 10s. The main difference is Nissan, which is more popular with women than with men. The Nissan Juke and Qashqai took the 5th and 6th spot respectively for women yet did not appear in the top for men. The Fiat 500 also makes an appearance on the women's top 10 and not in the men's. When it comes to the men, the only make that features on their top 10 and not the women's is BMW, with the 320D coming in at 10th place. The data from Zuto has also revealed the top 10 cars for different age groups: Ford and Vauxhall take the top 3 spots for every age category yet again, and if not for 17-24 year olds choosing Volkswagen Golfs as frequently as they did, they would have the top 4 in every group! Whilst the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra remain the most popular models in most locations in the UK, there are a few car models which rank higher in popularity in some areas than others. In London the Audi A3 is ranked as the 3rd most popular second-hand car model, whereas it is ranked as the 7th most popular model in Norfolk. Additionally, the Range Rover ranks as the 6th most popular model of car in Inverness-shire, whereas in Scotland's County of Midlothian (home to its capital Edinburgh), the Range Rover does not make top 10 models. Similarly, the Fiat 500 is 8th most popular second-hand model in West Yorkshire whereas it does not make the top 10 models in North Yorkshire. Highlighting that despite the short distance between locations, the most popular models of second-hand cars can differ between regions. In recent years, the cost of used cars has increased rapidly due to a shortage of semiconductor chips. Leading to a decrease in the production of new cars which has caused the demand for second hand cars to soar. With the reduction of new car production, means that the supply of second-hand cars is limited which inflates the price of them. When looking at online interest over the past 12 months, Zuto found that the Ford Fiesta ranked first, with 301,0-00 searches, followed by the Audi A3 (246,000) and then the Ford Focus (207,000).


THE UK'S NOISIEST CARS AND BRANDS

THE UK'S NOISIEST CARS AND BRANDS

19/04/2022 12:39:37

What are the UK's noisiest new cars? Recently, confused.com took an average of each vehicle model and manufacturer's reported noise level in decibels dB(A) from the last 5 years, to find out. The loudest vehicle of the past five years is the 2019 version of the Jaguar F-Pace SVR, with a decibel level of 86. To put that into context, it's said that being exposed to noise over 70 dB(A) for a prolonged period of time could damage your ears. While you might not expect a Kia to rank among the loudest cars in the country, it's the 2022 model year ProCeed that comes in second place (79.68 dB(A)). The Mercedes GLE-Class follows closely behind in third place with an average noise level of 78.50 dB(A), just beating the likes of the GLE Estate Model (78.17 dB9(A)). Following another Kia in fifth place (the Ceed), were 15 different vehicles all with a noise level of 75 dB(A), including 4 from Jaguar and 3 from Audi. Taking an average across all cars for each manufacturer in the last five years, the loudest (albeit by a small margin) is Lotus, with an average noise level of 73.65 dB(A). While no Lotus model appeared in the loudest overall, the small number of models produced by them had a consistently high noise level. The research also revealed the quietest car models and manufacturers: Unsurprisingly, each of the cars with the lowest average noise levels were electric vehicles. The Lexus UX 300e is the quietest overall despite Lexuses in general being amongst the loudest cars. The quietest car brand overall is Mazda, with an average decibel level of 67 dB(A).

THE MOST POPULAR CLASSIC CARS ON THE INTERNET

04/04/2022 17:46:27

New research has revealed the most popular classic cars according to both Google searches and social media data. The research, conducted by confused.com, analysed annual global Google searches, as well as TikTok views and Instagram hashtags, to reveal the most popular classic cars on the internet. The Nissan Skyline GT-R ranks first with the highest searches overall - 8,207,000 in total. The Nissan Skyline GT-R was revived in 1989, and soon became Nissan's flagship model, remaining relevant through appearances in films such as the Fast & Furious series. The Lamborghini Countach ranks second with 4,827,000 total searches. The Lamborghini Countach is one of the earliest examples of an "Italian wedge" body shape, designed by the Bertrone design house. The Ferrari F40 ranks third with just over 4 million total searches. The Ferrari F40 was the last model to be personally approved by Enzo Ferrari and was the brand's fastest, most powerful and most expensive car upon its launch. The Lamborghini Diablo ranks first with 155,780 tagged posts on Instagram and 14,600,000,000 views on TikTok, this Lamborghini model was the first to be capable of reaching over 200mph. Another Lamborghini model, the Lamborghini Miura, ranks second with over 80,000 tagged posts on Instagram and the same amount of TikTok views as the Diablo model. The Lamborghini Miura was the company's flagship model up until 1973 and is famous for featuring in the opening sequence of The Italian Job. The Honda Prelude rounds off the top 3, ranking third with almost 155,000 tagged Instagram posts and 14,400,000,000 total TikTok views. The Honda Prelude was in production for over 20 years, later becoming a contender to models such as the Toyota Celica, Mazda RX-7 and the Mitsubishi Eclipse. Further Insights: The Ferrari F355 is the car with the highest return of interest overall, with the value of the car increasing by 214% since its release in 1994 - jumping from $65,000 to $204,000. Plus the research reveals that the Lamborghini Miura is the best classic car overall, based on factors such as ROI, rarity and current popularity.


BRITS STILL LOVE THEIR CARS

BRITS STILL LOVE THEIR CARS

28/03/2022 16:41:30

Disruption from the Covid crisis changed Britain's driving habits, but motorists emerged loving their cars even more, according to research from Auto Express. Two years on from Britain's first Covid lockdown, a third of all drivers appreciate their car more than ever, even though a majority drive less often for leisure and personal reasons today than before the pandemic. The research by Auto Express also reveals that 25% of people are now commuting less by car and driving less for work. However, the increase in hybrid working has changed nothing for the driving habits of 71%. But the surprising finding which will come as music to the ears of a beleaguered motor industry is that 34% of drivers appreciate their car more than they did before the pandemic. This boost in pro-car sentiment comes even as a total of 76% report that they are driving less for work or leisure than before the crisis hit. Key to the popularity of car ownership is freedom and independence, which ranked far above factors such as convenience, practicality or even the desire to maintain social distance by avoiding public transport. The status of having your own car was rated as the least important aspect of car ownership, ranking even below the benefit of greater privacy than on public transport. Steve Fowler, Auto Express Editor in Chief, said: "The key insight is that we Brits have an enduring emotional connection with our cars. For example, our research also reveals that an overwhelming 84% of people enjoy driving and that they most value the feelings of freedom and independence when they get behind the wheel, rather than just the convenience and practicality afforded by car ownership. "Our findings are good news for a motor industry working hard to recover from disruptions to their supply chains and to the lives of their customers. It will be music to their ears to learn that a significant number of people love their cars even more today, even if they use them less."


HOW MUCH TO LEASE MOVIE CARS?

HOW MUCH TO LEASE MOVIE CARS?

21/03/2022 16:23:40

Ever wondered how much it would cost to lease the Batmobile? Leasing.com has revealed it would cost an eye watering £6,258 a month to have Christian Bale's iconic 'Tumbler' Batmobile sat on your driveway, and that's not even the most expensive vehicle as the leasing comparison website researched the top 10 movie and TV icons. As the latest Batman movie hits cinemas, Leasing.com crunched the numbers to find out how much iconic movie and TV vehicles, past and present, would cost to lease if they ever hit the car market on a three-year lease contract. Topping the list of most expensive cars to lease is James Bond's Aston Martin DB5. The silver coupe, which was first seen in Goldfinger, with Sean Connery at the wheel, last sold at auction for £3.45 million. Motorists would pay a staggering £28,787 per month to lease the Bond icon. Leasing.com's Top 10 Most Expensive Movie/TV Cars 1. James Bond's Aston Martin DB5 - £28,787.38 per month 2. Steve McQueen's Bullitt Mustang GT390 - £23,155.06 per month 3. Christian Bale's Tumbler Batmobile - £6,258.13 per month 4. Paul Walker's The Fast & Furious Toyota Supra - £3,441.97 per month 5. Doc's Back to the Future DeLorean DMC - £3,385.64 per month 6. Dukes of Hazard General Lee - £2,816.15 per month 7. Ghost Busters Ecto-1 - £1,473.38 per month 8. Herbie Fully Loaded - £671.88 per month 9. Del Boy's Reliant Robin - £346.88 per month 10. Gene Hunt's Ashes to Ashes Audi Quattro - £321.65 per month Whilst for most UK drivers such sums would be beyond their wildest dreams, many could afford Philip Glenisters Audi Quattro from BBC's Ashes to Ashes. Leasing.com figures show, 2021's average monthly lease cost was £331.97, the classic Quattro sold at auction for Children In Need in 2014 for £38,958 and would cost a more affordable £321.65 per month. Pricier than the Audi by £25 per month is Del Boy's Trotter's Independent Traders Reliant Robin which, based on a 2017 sale price of £41,625, would cost £346.88 per month. However, with four-wheel drive and, well four wheels, the Quattro is the more practical choice.
