Searches for 4x4s overall has increased 24 per cent in the last week, according to the website – while demand for some models has increased even more.
Searches for the BMW X3 went up by 54.7 per cent, for example, and the Honda CR-V by 90 per cent. The BMW X5 and Volvo XC90 jumped even more, though – seeing a 135.4 per cent and 189.7 per cent rise respectively.
The biggest increase? Searches for Range Rover models (be they the standard car, Sport or Evoque) – up 282 per cent on last week.
