The fun-loving and distinctive Nissan Juke has been named as the car with the most universal appeal to drivers of all ages, following analysis of favourite models conducted by the online motor retail specialist BuyaCar.co.uk.
The finding reflects BuyaCar’s analysis of more than 10,000 used car sales since 2017, which sought to identify the most popular cars chosen by drivers at different stages and ages in their lives.
The ten most popular purchases by younger, middle-aged and older drivers were identified and the Nissan Juke appears uniquely in the top ten cars for every age band of motorists.
The BuyaCar.co.uk analysis reflects a genuine popularity for the cars that make it into the top ten for each age segment of motorists because it reports used car choices, rather than new cars that are often heavily promoted to win market share with special offers.
Austin Collins, Managing Director of BuyaCar.co.uk, said: “When you talk to people about the Nissan Juke it’s quirky appearance seems to attract as much scepticism as enthusiasm, but the sales figures don’t lie.
“Although we were surprised to find the car that most appeals to the very broad range of online car buyers is the Juke, rather than more conventional cars like the Ford Focus or Fiesta, to rank in every segment of customer ages is a real testament to its appeal.”
Welcoming the BuyaCar.co.uk findings, Kalyana Sivagnanam, managing director, Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd. Said: “The Nissan Juke’s bold styling, customisable design and innovative technologies have made it a firm favourite with UK customers. So much so that it has been the best-selling compact crossover since its 2010 launch.
“It’s great to see the car still holds universal appeal, no matter the age of driver, and this will put the model in very good stead as we look to the near future and its forthcoming replacement.”
