BMW Most Popular Used Car Purchase in August

BMW Most Popular Used Car Purchase in August Image

The BMW was the most popular used car for sale in the United Kingdom in the month of August, according to Desperate Seller.  Desperate Seller, one of the premier websites for the advertising of cheap cars for sale in the United Kingdom, says that the most popular searched for used car in August was easily the BMW, the German car manufacturer beating off stiff competition from both Volkswagen and Nissan, which was the most popular used car in July.  Visitor data for Desperate Seller now shows that BMW used cars for sale is now the most popular search on the site in the whole of 2011 to date. 

The most preferred BMW model was the X5, which is a luxury 4x4 that is very much on the higher end of BMW's range, a fact that has surprised analysts given the renewed economic anxiety that has been spreading throughout the whole of Europe in the course of the last few months.  The X5 could hardly be described as a budget vehicle given that the prices for new models range from around £45,000 to £80,795, with a combined fuel economy rating of just 38 miles per gallon. 

The second most popular car on the Desperate Seller website in August was the BMW Series 3 convertible.  Despite the infamously poor weather in the United Kingdom, the country has the record for purchasing more convertible vehicles per capita than any other country in Europe.
