BMWs top the second hand market

More second-hand car buyers want a BMW than any other brand, according to a survey by used car website

BMW's 318i model is proving to be the most attractive used car, with 220 shoppers requesting to be immediately notified if one becomes available. Premium SUVS such as Range Rover and the Volvo XC90 are also highly requested.

Buyers looking for ex-fleet vehicles going up for sale have also been looking at BMWs, with the 118d M Sport model, with 145 customers registering to be notified when one of them comes up for sale.

Fredrik Skantze,'s CMO and co-founder, said: "There's a shortage of quality used cars at the moment, so it's no wonder buyers are queuing up to buy the most popular models."
