The Nissan Qashqai was the fastest selling used car in March, according to data analysis by Glass's

April 01, 2014

The Nissan took on average 25.3 days to sell, reflecting a surging interest in the crossover SUV market sector. It is joined in the top 10 by three products aimed at buyers with a similar taste.

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."
