An interesting report by the Brumbrum Observatory shows us the state of health of the second-hand market. Here is a picture of the used car buying trends on the net between 20 and 30 thousand euros.
The trends of Italians to buy online
The second-hand market is more alive than ever, and has its own dynamics. Suffice it to say that about 22% of Italians spend between 20 and 30 thousand euros for the purchase of a car online. An interesting figure, as with such a budget you usually buy cars such as station wagons, crossovers and SUVs, multi-accessorized and with engines of all types, including latest generation hybrids.
This is why the new study of Brumbrum Observatory, the first direct online car dealer in Italy that operates on the website www.brumbrum.it, shows us the trends of buyers on the second-hand market. The budget taken into consideration is precisely the one that reaches up to 30 thousand euros.
Jeep Renegate: the undisputed queen of used cars
AND Jeep Renegade the true queen of the best-selling online used cars under 30,000 euros. The Italian crossover beats another Jeep, the Compass, for a one-two from FCA. The first foreigner closes the podium, Volkswagen Golf, winner of the sedans. The German brand is very present in this ranking: it also occupies the fourth and fifth place, where they are located Volkswagen Tiguan e T-Roc.
Sixth position for Mercedes A-Class used, followed by yet another German car, Audi A3 Sportback. Other SUVs of different sizes close the top ten: Range Rover Evoque, BMW X1 e Peugeot 3008.
Absolute domination of crossovers, disappointment for minivans
Speaking of used car types, they are the crossover to win our ranking, thanks to the great results of Jeep Renegade and Volkswagen T-Roc. In second place, very detached sedan. The podium is closed by i SUV, with many models placed well in the ranking. Off the podium by two percentage points family members, in front of small cars which capture only 2.6% of sales in this price category. Disappointment for the minivan, only sixth despite the price range considered to be the correct one for them, a sign that it is a type of vehicle that is now out of fashion.
The best-selling used cars are those with automatic transmission
Finally, let’s take a look at change and nutrition. The majority of cars sold in the online used world under 30,000 are with the automatic gearbox, which beats the manual with a 60% against a 40%. Of course, the figure considered greatly helps this type of transmission, given that it is widely used on spacious and comfortable cars such as SUVs and crossovers, which dominate our ranking. As for nutrition, diesel beats and gasoline by a lot. The diesel engine is the most loved by Italians with the 66% of sales, followed by gasoline at 25%. Excellent results for the hybrid power supply that conquers the podium, even if still very far from the first two. Electric beats LPG and methane, but does not go beyond 1% of sales.
