Auto Trader reveals its most searched-for cars of 2017

Search figures from Auto Trader prove that Britain's second-hand car buyers still want the finer things in life. According to data from the online car buying marketplace, premium brands dominated searches on the website last year – with BMW's 3 Series topping the charts.

Taking the crown for its seventh consecutive year, the 3 Series attracted over 40 million searches in 2017. It's not the only BMW in the top 10, either – the firm's 1 Series hatch and 5 Series saloon took fifth and sixth place respectively.
