Car dealers have a lot of tricks up their sleeves when it comes to selling the cars they’ve bought (at places like You Drive We Sell) and want to re-sell to the public. From excessive ads to specials at the dealership, their aim is to sell the vehicles on their car-stands as fast as possible!

Although they put a lot of effort into selling, the public has some favorites that any car dealer should take note off – these cars will spend a minimum amount of days at the dealership.

Let’s take a look at the six fastest-selling used cars in South Africa and the average recorded time they spend at the dealership before being bought:

1 – Ford Fiesta 1.4

The Ford Fiesta is a go-to choice for second-hand buyers.
This car races out of dealerships faster than any other vehicle.
The average time at a dealership: 3 days

2 – Volkswagen Polo Vivo 1.4

The Polo Vivo is often South Africa’s top-selling passenger car and the second-hand market wants them too.
The average time at a dealership: 6 days

3 – Toyota Hilux double cab

Although the Hilux is South Africa’s most popular new vehicle – people often opt for a second-hand market one.
The average time at a dealership: 7 days

4 – Hyundai ix35

Hyundai’s SUV has been a bit of a sales revelation for the Korean brand over the last decade and second-hand buyers lean towards them and classify them as a favorite.
The average time at a dealership: 9 days

5 – Nissan NP200 1.6

The Nissan NP200 also known as the “small business bakkie” is a very popular used car buy.
Buyers tend to search for them to use for their businesses – or to have them as an extra car at home for transferring/moving goods when needed.
The average time at a dealership: 11 days

6 – Hyundai i10

The Hyundai i10 still appears to be very popular among second-hand buyers.
They seem to trust what the Korean brand has manufactured over the last decade and believe in its reliability.
The average time at a dealership: 15 days
