Phil Morgan, Head of findandfundmycar.com whose site-search data was used to reveal the most-wanted cars, says:

“It’s no surprise that the Fiesta is Cardiff’s most searched for, and most wanted, car. They are known to be extremely reliable and cheap to run in terms of fuel, tax and insurance too.

It will be very interesting to see how the pandemic changes car buying interests over the coming months. It could be that more people are looking to purchase a run around because they don’t want to lift-share or use public transport. Some people may be reconsidering their choice of vehicle from new to used, meaning they may be more likely to search for a cheaper, more reliable vehicle.

In a poll by the AA, it was said that a fifth of UK drivers will drive less once coming out of lockdown, with commuting being less of a general need as more people will opt to work from home. However, we may see more people taking holidays close to home and therefore needing their own transport.

Price and reliability are most likely to play a big part in a customer’s choice right now, with many people’s incomes and priorities having shifted during the outbreak.
