Top 20 most searched-for new car reviews by brand on whatcar.com

The coronavirus pandemic and the fact that car dealers have had to close their doors had the effect of shrinking the UK’s new car market by more than 97% in April, compared with the same month in 2019.

Potential buyers aren’t resting on their laurels, however, with What Car? research revealing that one in five are looking to buy now that dealerships have been allowed to reopen. Those buyers will be well informed, too, having had more time to research their next purchase and how much to pay for it.
