Britain’s largest online marketplace for new and used cars, AutoTrader, has revealed the 10 most searched cars this year.

Retaining the number 1 position in the United Kingdom is the BMW 3-Series, which was favored by most internet users with a diesel powertrain, followed by the Volkswagen Golf and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Ford’s Focus comes in 4th place, whereas BMW follows it from the 5th and 6th positions with the 1-Series and 5-Series, respectively. Another Ford, this time the Fiesta, sits on the 7th spot, right in front of the Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and the Vauhxall/Opel Astra completes the Top 10 list.

The diesel searches were topped by the BMW 3-Series, Volkswagen Golf, and BMW 5-Series, whereas the most favored petrol powered cars were the Volkswagen Golf, BMW 3-Series, and Ford Focus.

For hybrids, Toyota holds on to the first two positions with the Auris and Prius, followed by the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, while the electric ‘crown’ goes to the Nissan Leaf, which turned out to be more popular than the BMW i3 and Mercedes-Benz B-Class.

“The results show that British car buyers are very keen on spoiling themselves, with premium manufacturers featuring very heavily in our list of most searched-for cars”, commented AutoTrader’s road test editor, Ivan Aistrop.

Blindly Changing Lanes At Speed Is Always A Bad Idea 11

Regardless of how good or bad of a driver you are, one factor is always key in determining your next decision on the road, and that’s visibility.

This guy had none. Coming in from the third lane and cutting across to the first with that large semi in the way was a horrible decision, even if his motivation was to not miss an exit or perhaps to pull into a nearby gas station.

The fact remains that if you can’t see where you’re going, you’re opening yourself up to all sorts of risks that might cause you as well as other people harm.

As far as we can tell, a total of three cars were damaged, not including the second-generation Opel Astra that caused the accident in the first place.

Here’s to hoping people weren’t seriously injured. Also, it’s probably a good thing that the driver of the Astra managed to avoid running in the back of the first vehicle impacted. By maneuvering between the car and the semi, the driver at fault managed to cut down on his speed before the inevitable happened.
