Motorists stay loyal to British marques
New research into car buying habits has revealed that of the 68% of consumers planning to buy a car in the next six months, over half will choose a British-made car over foreign alternatives.
Almost a third (29%) of drivers already own a British brand car and consider British motors to be stylish. Unsurprisingly, the Jaguar E-type was voted as the most iconic British car while the original Mini Cooper came a close second.
Jon Quirk, Auto Trader's Editor-in-Chief, said: "We should be proud of our country's motoring heritage and it's not surprising that Brits are still loyal to home-grown brands – we've produced some of the most iconic and head-turning motors for decades."
