However, regional results were a little different.

Auto Trader Trade solutions director Karolina Edwards-Smajda said: “The April data continues to demonstrate the importance of pricing to the live retail market to optimise speed of sale. On average cars in the top ten were 99% aligned to their optimal price position, based on our comprehensive retail price intelligence.

“The regional figures underline the need to adopt a local view to demand and sourcing strategy based on regional desirability. The 2012 Citroen DS3, for example, may have been the fastest selling car in Yorkshire, but it only appeared in 178th place nationally.”

In four regions, the 2012 Nissan Qashqai topped the list of speedy sellers, with both diesel and petrol variants performing well. However, this strong regional performance was not quite good enough to elevate either car into the national top ten.
