Every year, car thieves have their own methods of picking up their favorite models and even if carmakers are constantly looking for new ways to prevent car theft, they can`t stop the ingenious thieves. In the UK, their number one model is no other than the BMW X5.
According to a new report issued by UK Tracker, it seems that the BMW X5 is the most stolen car in 2016, with three other BMW models topping the list.
Besides the BMW X5 which can be resold for good money, thieves also prefer stealing the Range Rover Sport, another outstanding SUV coming with a good price.
Third place is taken by BMW M3, with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and E-Class following shortly. The BMW`s 3-Series is number six, with the top 10 list continuing with the Range Rover Autobiography and Range Rover Evoque. Finally, the list closes up with the BMW 5-Series.
Compared to 2015, the last year`s most stolen cars in the UK is completely different, with the Tracker`s 2015 list being topped by the Audi Q7 and Audi RS4, which are now missing from the 2016 list.
Tracker head of police Andy Barrs, have also stated in an interview that “Our latest figures reveal a shift in the most desirable makes and models that thieves are stealing in order, but 4x4s remain the most popular type of vehicles.”
It remains to see which models thieves prefer this year, but with the plethora of high-end models arriving in Geneva in a couple of days, it will surely be an interesting and long list.
