Searches rocket 32% for Convertible Cars during sunny weather

Searches for convertibles rocketed by 32% year-on-year during the warm weather according to new data released by Ireland’s largest motor website – DoneDeal.ie.

The sharp increase in interest is notable, as an extra 45,000 searches for convertible cars took place during June and July this year, compared with the same time period in 2017.

During June and July, DoneDeal.ie surveyed over 1,000 people who were looking to purchase a car and found that 64% of respondents were interested in buying a Diesel motor, with 22% in the market for a petrol engine with Hybrid (11%) and Electric (3%) making up the rest of the survey responses.

55% of those who responded indicated they would sell their old vehicle privately, compared with 45% who would opt to trade it in.

Adam Ferguson from DoneDeal.ie said: “This large increase in the number of searches for convertibles reflects the spirit and optimism that the good weather brought and this was reflected in the way users were using and searching the site.”

For this research, DoneDeal.ie analysed over 330,000 searches for convertibles which took place on the site between June and July 2017 and June and July 2018.
