Here are the Creditplus and car market facts for November.
A new number one last month as the Vauxhall Insignia became the most popular car here at Creditplus. As seen in our car review, the Insignia makes for an excellent car for a professional looking to make a statement. Ford Fiesta and Focus were 2nd and 3rd most popular.
New car registrations were up by 8.0% from the same month last year. 172,327 new cars were sold or financed, marking the 33rd consecutive month of growth that shows no sign of stopping.
On average, our customers were 38 years old. Looking at the year's stats, it seems the majority of our customers are in their late thirties. A sign of customers using their credit history wisely?
We loaned an average of £11,598.66 to our customers in November.
Black was once again the most popular colour choice by far. There was also one car purchased in Panther Black, but if you ask me what the difference between the two was, I couldn't tell you.
Average deposit last month was £1,193.61. We finance customers with a variety of different deposit amounts, all depending on circumstances.
The average loan term was 51 months.
The Ford Fiesta dominates the UK car market, selling more than any other make. Last month 7,660 were sold. The Volkswagen Golf was a surprising second with 5,440 sold, with the Vauxhall Corsa in third with 4,832.
