The Ford Focus tops the list as most searched for used car model among Wexford car buyers, followed by the Volkswagen Golf, Nissan Qashqai and Volkswagen Passat, according to findings of the fifth edition of the Motoring Report. There is no change in the colour preference of motorists when searching for a car, and almost a quarter of buyers (24 per cent) choose black as their colour of choice, followed by silver, white and blue.

The report is a bi-annual index which tracks trends in both the new and used car markets in Ireland. Once again, the results reveal that German car marques remain most popular among Irish car buyers and the Volkswagen Golf topped the list as most searched for used car model in Ireland. Volkswagen is now the most searched for marque nationally, overtaking BMW following a significant two million VW searches on on 2014 alone.

The report shows that the average age of a car is between eight and nine years old, and the top 10 searches in Wexford are all between 2006 and 2014 models.
