Online is the future of used car buying according to executives

Tue 23rd Jan 2018

An overwhelming amount of UK motoring executives see the internet as the future of car sales, with the number of car forecourts predicted to plummet. 

That’s according to a new study from KPMG which found that 75 per cent of dealership bosses think that between 20 and 50 per cent of physical showrooms will no longer exist by 2025.

With a separate study finding that over 80 per cent of buyers have already done their research before entering a forecourt, industry heavyweight James Hind believes the shift to the online market is simply falling in line with what British consumers want.

Hind said: "It’s no secret the industry is undergoing a period of significant change.

"Consumers now expect a convenient, frictionless, fair and transparent experience as standard, in all sectors.”

At, we take pride in being at the forefront of the 'car buying revolution’ by offering exactly what an increasing number of consumers want - choiceconvenience and transparency from a company they can be confident in.
