MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER DIESEL IS FASTEST SELLING USED CAR IN JUNE ACCORDING TO AUTO TRADER

Jul 12, 2018

The Mitsubishi Outlander Diesel was the UK’s fastest selling used car in June according to research undertaken and published by Auto Trader.

The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Diesel automatic was on average the UK’s fastest selling used car in June, taking 19 days to sell in comparison to the industry-wide average of 63 days. The Mitsubishi Outlander Diesel manual took the UK’s fourth place overall, taking 21 days to sell, and when looking at region-specific data the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) was the fastest selling used car in the London area, taking an average of 18 days to sell.

Rob Lindley, Managing Director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK said: “The strong used sales performance of the Mitsubishi Outlander Diesel is evidence that there is still strong consumer appetite for seven-seat diesel SUVs in the market, particularly those which offer long-term reliability and low running costs. Our Approved Used programme has been instrumental in driving used vehicle demand by offering at least two years’ warranty, two years' roadside assistance, a 30 day exchange plan and a guaranteed full service history, as well as flexible finance options. The strength of this package is clearly resonating with customers.”

Karolina Edwards-Smajda, Retailer and Consumer Products Director, Auto Trader:

“It’s not a surprise that the Outlander was the UK’s fastest selling used car in June. It’s a great example of the perfect family all-rounder and represents excellent value for consumers looking for a second-hand car. The spacious interior, superior fuel economy, and the solid 4x4 capabilities, means it’s not just for the practical minded, but the adventurous too.” 

Auto Trader who carried out this research is the UK’s largest digital automotive marketplace for new and used vehicles, and has the largest pool of vehicle sellers, listing more than 470,000 vehicles each day.
