A new report by Glass shows us that the Land Rover Discovery Sport is the most desired used vehicle in the UK for the month of July '15. The relatively new vehicle has a fairly low used volume that can't fulfil the strong demand that Britons have for the vehicle.
It is interesting that the Discovery Sport has topped the list of most desired used vehicles, since the other 4 vehicle on the list are all more budget oriented options. Here is the list of the "Hot Five" for July which lists the most wanted used cars in the country:
1. Land Rover Discovery Sport
2. Dacia Sandero
3. Chevrolet Captiva
4. Chevrolet Orlando
5 Dacia Duster
A used Discovery Sport stays on the lot for an average of 14.6 days before being sold. The low mileage and age of the units being sold indicate that most are ex-demonstrators and ex-manufacturer staff cars.
There is one slight downside to getting a Discovery Sport on the used market right now though. Those vehicles will come with the Freelander's old 2.2-litre diesel engine. People will be missing out on the upcoming Ingenium equipped Discovery Sport. Furthermore, if you can wait until those Ingenium equipped models come out, it will likely drive the price of the 2.2-litre diesel equipped used models down.
Did any of you guys get your Discovery Sport used? Was it tough finding one at a dealership?
