Car finance experts Car Loan 4U comments on the increase in Audi and BMW online searches
A new report by Greenlight has revealed that there has been a significant increase in the number of people searching for German car manufacturers Audi and BMW in August 2013.
A total of 10.7 searches were made by UK consumers who were looking online for cars last month, and ‘Audi’ and ‘BMW’ were the highest recipients for web terms of car manufacturers as they were searched for 450,000 times.
This made up a total of 8% of all automotive-related searches, but they weren’t the only popular manufacturers, with ‘Mercedes’ following with 360,000 searches and ‘Vauxhall’ with 301,000.
Online car finance specialist Car Loan 4U’s own internal data also supports these findings, with Vauxhall accounting for 17% and BMW accounting for 10% of total cars financed by the company over the last week (September 16th – September 23rd).
A separate report by the AA Cars website showed that the Volkswagen Golf was the most viewed used car model, followed by the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Land Rover Range Rover Sport.
Car Loan 4U Director Ryan Dignan, comments:
“The report by Greenlight has really shed some light on the most searched for car manufacturers online and at Car Loan 4U we know first-hand just how popular they are, with a large amount of car buyers choosing models from these manufacturers over the last week alone.
“Of the amount of deals we have financed to customers over the past week, perhaps it’s no surprise that Vauxhall and BMW are the two most popular manufacturers, alongside Ford which accounted for 13% of cars we financed.
“In regards to individual models, the Volkswagen Golf, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Land Rover Range Rover Sport are also three models that are popular with our customers looking for the best deal on their car finance.”
