Commenting on the figures, Rupert Pontin, chief car editor at Glass’s, said: ‘These results not only reinforce the popularity and desirability of the Qashqai but emphasise the growing importance of crossover SUVs in the used as well as new markets.

‘Peugeot’s 3008, in at number 10, appears to be one of the better kept secrets now coming out of the bag. Similar in style to the Qashqai, it’s a great family car that offers excellent value for money. At the same time, it hasn’t taken the used market long to fall in love with the fun-looking and very capable Peugeot 2008 which takes seventh spot. Peugeot has clearly embraced this sector with open arms!

‘The latest figures will also be very pleasing to Audi, whose Q3, in fourth place, makes an excellent premium-badged, premium-priced alternative to the other crossover SUVs. With the TT and A1 also in the top 10, our table clearly rubber stamps the Audi brand’s current popularity and relevance. The strength of another German brand, Volkswagen, is demonstrated by the somewhat surprising rise of its Bora to number three.’

Meanwhile family cars put in a strong presence in Glass’s league of worst-performing cars, with no fewer than four D-sector products among the ten slowest sellers.

Pontin said: ‘It’s hard to believe that the Vauxhall Cascada is the slowest seller of all, which suggests that it’s either in oversupply or it’s overpriced. Realistically, it’s probably a combination of both. Only time will tell. I’m also extremely surprised to see the Jaguar F-Type and Mini Paceman in such lowly positions. These have been very successful in the new market but perhaps buyers only want them as new cars or find that the second-hand models are overpriced.’

Commenting on the descent of the MG6 to second-bottom place. Pontin added: ‘MG has yet to create a demand for this car in either the new or used car market and its market profile is low as far as the retail buyer is concerned. There are so few on the road that most people don’t know what they are. The situation may improve, but the trade is wary of them. Aside from those actually supported by MG, only the bravest trade buyers would stock one unless it was very cheap.’
