- Audi TT and Volkswagen Scirocco recorded biggest increase in CarGurus searches in run up to Christmas
- Popular Audi TT celebrates 20th anniversary this year making it the perfect present
- It’s snow joke! British drivers also preparing for winter with a spike in SUV and pick-up searches ahead of expected snowfall
All I want for Christmas… is an Audi TT. That’s according to data from CarGurus, the online automotive marketplace, which has revealed the cars with the biggest increase in searches during the festive season.
The Audi TT comes top of British drivers’ Christmas wish lists with searches for the sports coupe, which celebrated its 20thanniversary this year, more than doubling in December compared to November.
The Volkswagen Scirocco could also be under the tree on Christmas morning thanks to a surge in interest from potential car buyers in December.
That said, with Christmas a time for transporting family, it seems not all shoppers will be treating themselves or their loved ones to a sporty number. Some potential buyers are taking a more practical approach and looking for SUVs and pick-up trucks, which are more suitable for the long family drives and the winter months ahead.
The UK was blasted by snowstorms in the early part of 2018 and it seems British drivers are once again preparing themselves with two SUVs and a pick-up truck recording large spikes in interest.
