Brits' favourite cars to buy second hand are finally revealed… could you be sitting on a secret goldmine? | The Sun

BRITS' favourite car to buy second hand has been revealed – and you could be sitting on a secret gold mine.

Car Dealer Magazine has revealed the pre-loved cars that are selling like hotcakes, and they are not what you might expect.

Lucy Tugby, marketing director at eBay Motors Group, said: "Some of the fastest-selling used cars advertised by dealers on in October were achieved by EVs.

"We believe this was a direct result of improved supply, with a welcome influx of end-of-contract PCPs and defleets following the debut of the 73-plate in September, coupled with lower wholesale values."

Top of the list for the most sought after second-hand vehicle is the Toyota Prius+ which sells in an average of just 18.4 days.

A close second is the Tesla Model 3 which sells in an average of 19.2 days.
