Of 53,700 vehicles listed for sale in 2017, Toyota has been rated the most popular, according to car marketplace Dubicars.com, with 23% of users searching for the Japanese brand.
Its desert-friendly Land Cruiser and smaller Prado proved most favoured among users.
Surprisingly, Mercedes-Benz was the only German manufacturer in the top five, commanding 12.4% of searches, despite advertising almost double the number of cars Toyota offers. The S-Class was the preferred model.
Nissan came in close at third place, with 11.2% of users seeking the Japanese brand’s Patrol and Patrol Safari the most. Lexus ranked fourth with 8.5% of searches, with the most popular model being the upscale LX 570.
Rounding out the top five is Hyundai, which caught 6.0% of search volumes. The Tucson SUV was heavily sought after due to its versatility. Though it is not deal for the desert, it is a cheaper alternative for school runs.
Dubicars also noted that Tesla, Aston Martin and Maserati saw significant growth over the 12 month period.
