Featuring 725 modes, this data is based upon the number of times potential buyers viewed each car on the AA Cars website.
Taking second place in the ‘most viewed’ league table was the Mercedes C-Class followed by the almighty Range Rover Sport in third and Discovery in fifth.
Ford’s Focus made it up to number four but the smaller Fiesta surprisingly only managed to reach thirteenth.
The Audi A4 managed to secure the number six spot with the A3 close behind in seventh and Toyota’s Rav 4 took eight position ahead of the Vauxhall Astra in ninth. Audi’s TT only just squeezed in to round-up the top 10.
Volkswagen made a further two appearances in the top 20 with the Transporter van in fourteenth and the Passat seventeenth.
Land Rover also enjoyed two more top 20 positions with the Defender in sixteenth and Range Rover tucking in at number 20.
Those in the bottom five such as the Rolls-Royce Camargue, Alfa Romeo 145 and the BMW 850, only received a handful of views.
Director of AA Cars says, David Bruce, said: ‘It’s no surprise that the legendary refinement, reliability and economy of the Golf mean that it appears to be the most sought-after used car.’
He added: ‘The wide cross-section of models in the top 20 views shows the broad appeal of searching for a used car on AA Cars: there are literally cars to suit every choice and budget.
