“The fastest seller figures are reported on a monthly basis, and I am sure the data for October will be of particular interest to motor industry commentators and retailers alike,” said Karolina Edwards-Smajda, of Auto Trader.
“What we can underline with our fastest selling results is the continuing importance of transparency in all areas of the new and used car markets,” Karolina Edwards-Smajda added. “For example, our pricing data tells us that none of the top ten fastest sellers nationally in October sold for more than their optimum price point. That may be the early signs of a softening of the market as the festive season approaches but dealers in the South, the South East and the South West can be reassured as values remain robust.”
