The MyVehicle Nationwide Market Overview report for December 2020

The Nissan Qashqai has reached the top spot as the best selling car sold by Independent dealers in Ireland in December 2020 with the Ford Focus coming in second place and the Hyundai Tucson dropping back to third from first place last month.

 

The diesel Hyundai Tucson is without a doubt the most popular car in Ireland and once again it is the number one selling car by Franchise dealers for the month of December. 

 

All cars sold by Independent dealers in December were diesels but a slight change in the top ten Franchise sales saw the introduction of petrol Nissan Micra and Petrol Renault Clio. Diesels continue to dominate in the Irish car market.

 

Diesel’s were heavily pushed by the Government in the past ten years or so and now they have reversed this recommendation in line with the global trend away from diesel fuel but all indicators point to diesel still being the most popular choice for consumers.

 

The number one quickest selling car from Independent dealers in December was 2003 Petrol Mazda 2 and the quickest selling vehicle during November from franchise dealers was the 2014 Diesel SEAT Leon.

 

The November report reveals that of the top ten cars sold privately, the top three went to the Petrol Ford Focus, the Diesel BMW 5 Series and Petrol BMW 3 Series. BMW is always popular in this private category with four cars in the top ten.

 

Of the top-ten cars valued during the month, the diesel Skoda Superb came out on top with the diesel Hyundai Tucson taking the second place position and again the diesel KIA Sportage coming in 3rd place.
