The Best-Selling Used Car Of 2021

Feb 23, 2022 | All About Cars | 0 comments

The figures are in, and the best-selling used car in 2021 was… the Ford Fiesta!!! According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, there were an amazing 326,346 Fiesta transactions during 2021. But, it’s not all good news, the Ford Fiesta was also the most stolen too – during the same year, 3,909 Ford Fiesta’s were reported as stolen to the police.

In 2021, almost 48,400 cars were reported as stolen according to the DVLA – which is 1,600 more than the previous year. Range Rover, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi were all targeted by criminals but all were not as desirable as the trusted Ford Fiesta.

If you’ve been following the news (or reading our blogs) then you’ll already know that the used car market is booming thanks to, in part, the chip shortage for new cars. This shortage has no doubt increased demand for used cars such as the Ford Fiesta thanks to availability. During the pandemic, it used to take 30-60 days for a car to sell, now it only takes a week in some cases.

As expected, electric and plug-in hybrid cars grew throughout 2021, but sales of petrol and diesel vehicles also grew by 10.7% and 9.8% respectively.
