Bristol Street Motors has revealed the North East’s top 10 most popular used car purchases of 2017 so far.

Bristol Street Motors, part of Vertu Motors plc, has over 80 dealerships across England, including eight across the North East, stretching from Hartlepool to Morpeth.

The report unveils the most popular used cars sold by Bristol Street Motors between January to March 2017.

Contrary to Auto Express’ ‘Best Selling Cars of 2017’, which see the Ford Fiesta named the UK’s best-selling car, Bristol Street Motors has revealed the Nissan Juke to be the region’s favourite used car purchase of 2017 to date.

However, the Ford Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost remains popular with the people of the North East, closely followed by three Vauxhall favourites – Mokka, the quirky SUV; Viva, the efficient city car; and the Meriva, the up-market MPV.

In sixth place is the Ford Fiesta 1.25 82 Zetec, closely followed by the stylish Vauxhall Adam 1.2 Jam.

The family-favourite Nissan Qashqai holds its own in eighth place, cementing Nissan’s popularity in its North-East heartland.

Unsurprisingly, the Vauxhall Corsa remains one of the region’s most popular cars, sitting comfortably in ninth place. Finally, the Ford Focus ranks in tenth place amongst Bristol Street Motors customers in the North East, further proving the popularity of the US carmaker’s efficient ‘EcoBboost’ engine.

Terry O’Neil, general manager at Bristol Street Motors Darlington Nissan, said: “It’s unsurprising to see the Nissan Juke at the top of the list amongst North East customers, as it has proved very popular since it was first released in 2010, and has been built at the manufacturing plant in Sunderland since day one. I’m very excited to see a car built in the North East ranked number one, not only is this great news for the dealership but also fantastic for the region’s automotive manufacturing industry!

“We are very excited for the rest of the Simply Amazing event and look forward to welcoming customers from across the North East to dealership over the Easter weekend.”

The report comes as part of Macklin Motors’ ‘Simply Amazing’ event. Taking place between 7-17th April, the event offers customers up to five years 0% APR finance with no deposit on thousands of used cars
