 Once again, the regional fastest-seller leagues revealed the popularity of the Nissan Qashqai. As well as taking top spots in the south west and Wales, the Sunderland-built model also made third position in London and fifth in its home territory, the north east.

London, the north west and Scotland proved to be regional hot spots for speedy sales last month. On average, cars in the top ten sold in just 16 days in London with the 2011 BMW 3 Series diesel manual taking just nine days to turn.

In the north east, cars in the top ten sold in just 15 days with the 2014 Ford Galaxy MPV diesel taking just six days to turn. In Scotland, top ten cars turned, on average, in 18 days.

Karolina Edwards-Smajda, Auto Trader’s director of retailer and consumer products, said: ‘Stalwarts like the Nissan Qashqai continue to demonstrate their value as a forecourt acquisition, but this month we’ve also seen less-obvious cars like the Chrysler Ypsilon make it into the national top ten.


‘What’s really interesting, however, is the variation in speed of sale by different regions. In London, the north Wwst and Scotland, cars in the top ten took an average of fewer than 20 days to sell. However, when looking at the east of England, Wales and the south west, we found they took more than twice as long to leave forecourts.’
