Most popular cars in September 2019

The Nationwide Market Overview report for September 2019 shows that of the top ten used cars sold by Independent dealers in Ireland, the number one best selling car was the Nissan Qashqai. The car was also in the number one spot last month. The Qashqai also held the second spot during the month of September.

When it came to the top-ten used cars sold by Franchise dealers for the month of September, the number one spot, once again, is the Hyundai Tucson. This Tucson is by far the most popular vehicle in Ireland in recent times and keeps popping up in the top spot. The Tucson also held the second spot in the top 10 used cars sold by franchise dealers.

Again, like in previous months, every top-ten car sold by both independent dealers and franchise dealers in September were diesel, despite the current global trend away from diesel fuel.

The quickest selling car from Independent dealers in September was the diesel Ford Focus and the quickest selling vehicle from franchise dealers was the Diesel Volkswagen Golf.

The September report reveals that of the top ten cars sold privately, the petrol Ford Focus came in at first (2007), second (2005) and third (2006) places. 

It would seem that the most popular cars in the private market place in September were the Focuses, Golfs and BMW’s.

Of the top-ten cars valued during the month, the number one was the Volkswagen Passat (2015) with the Ford Mondeo taking the 2nd place with the Passat coming in 3rd place also.
