Top 200 most stocked used car dealers in September revealed as number of cars sold falls

Time 12 months ago

Used car sales fell in September by nearly seven per cent compared to August as the market showed signs of ‘returning to normal’.

New data from used car market analysts Carcondor reveals that in September 186,818 used cars were sold by the top 200 dealers around the country generating revenues of £3.08bn.

That’s a fall of nearly five per cent in revenue compared to August which was the fourth month in a row of used car sales rises.


Carcondor, which analyses the used car market by assessing advertising feeds of the top 200 dealers, says the number of used cars in stock rose by 17.5 per cent as supply started to increase.


The best selling used car was once again the Ford Fiesta and the fastest selling car was the Dacia Duster, overtaking the Smart ForFour from August.

Carcondor’s William Gomes said: ‘September historically always gets less sales than August, so the results are not a surprise. 

‘While sales are lower month on month, they are in line with what is expected and a sign of monthly trends returning to normal. 

‘If the past few years are anything to go by it means that in October, we should be expecting a month on month increase again. But with the current climate it is hard to guess.’


Arnold Clark led the Top 200 Used Car Dealers by stock list once again with 24,698 cars on its books – down a few hundred on last month.
