Petrol-powered versions of the family SUV proved most popular when fitted with a manual gearbox found favour in the month, which followed October’s fastest-seller accolade for the Ford Ka hatchback.

The Kuga was followed into second and third place by the 2015 Hyundai ix35 (petrol manual), and the 2014 Hyundai i10 (petrol manual) – both took an average of 21 days to leave UK forecourts – in a strong month for Hyundai.

The national top 10 also featured two other entries from the South Korean manufacturer, Auto Trader reported.

The 2015 Hyundai Tucson (diesel manual), and the 2014 Hyundai i30 (petrol manual), which both took an average of 24 days to sell.

Hyundai’s UK President and chief executive, Tony Whitehorn, said: “To have four Hyundai models in the top ten fastest selling used cars is a real testament to how far we have come as a brand in the last few years. 

“With continued investment in our model range, we are able to offer consumers new and used models that are both desirable as well being good value for money.”

Karolina Edwards-Smajda, Auto Trader Retailer & Consumer Products Director, said: “Following on the heels of the Ka taking the number one spot in October, it’s great to see the Blue Oval in the number one position once again this year. However, November’s real winner is the Hyundai, impressively taking four places last month.”

While SUVs dominated the fastest sellers list as the mercury started to plummet, hatchbacks dominated Auto Trader’s regional fastest sellers lists, taking the number one spot in 12 of the 13 regions/countries monitored.

The regions broke down as follows: East England (2013 Volkswagen Golf, diesel manual); East Midlands (2016 Nissan Juke, diesel manual); London (2014 Nissan Qashqai, diesel manual); North East (2013 Vauxhall Corsa, petrol manual); North West (2014 Volkswagen Golf, petrol manual); Northern Ireland (2015 Ford Fiesta, petrol manual); Scotland (2016 Peugeot 208, petrol manual); South (2014 Vauxhall Mokka, petrol manual); South West (2014 BMW 1 Series, diesel manual); Wales (2013 Ford Fiesta, petrol manual); West Midlands (2015 Ford Focus, petrol manual) and Yorkshire (2011 Ford Fiesta, petrol manual).
