Are you getting a lot of enquiries to pick up Jaguar cars or as you walk around, there seems to be a lot of Jaguar emblems staring at you? Or are you getting lots of requests for Jaguar parts? Well, you might not be alone. According to research carried out by automotive data experts, Cazana, three specific Jaguar vehicles are in the top ten cars involved in an accident.
Cazana have reported that for the top ten cars that have received crash damage, they have analysed every online car advert that has appeared in the last ten years and then identified if they have been involved in an accident. When analysing the data, the researchers took into consideration the length of time the models had been on UK roads, the risk of an accident plus the popularity of the vehicle. From this, they were able to conclude what vehicle models had been in an accident and had received repair.
The Jaguar XKR and XK8 take up the top two spots with the XJ coming in at number 6. Other high-speed cars, as could be expected, helped to make up the list. However, surprisingly the Volkswagen Golf and Renault Megan’s, both family hatchbacks, were listed in the top five.
The list was as follows:
Ten most crashed cars in the UK
12006 Jaguar XKR
22006 Jaguar XK8
42003 Nissan 350Z
52006 Renault Megane
62003 Jaguar XJ
72003 Subaru Impreza
82000 BMW M3 Coupe
9Mazda MX-5 Soft top
102015 Ford Fiesta
Tom Wood, CEO at Cazana, commented: “We were interested in the results that this analysis produced. Whilst some models on the list may not surprise you, thanks to their horse-power and superior acceleration, other entrants were less expected. The Volkswagen Golf is known as a reliable family hatchback, so it was surprising to see it in the top five.
Whilst ultimately damage is caused by a multitude of factors including road and weather conditions and the driver themselves, it’s interesting to see these clear trends in the data.”
Although the data reflects what cars have received repairs, it can act as an indicator to what models will be sought out by those looking to replace damaged parts. Also if these cars have been damaged, does it match the vehicles coming on to our sites? Why not go out and have a stroll and see how many Jags are roaring at you in the yard.
