Going up – going down

Our experts on the auction floor give you the lowdown on what's selling and what's sitting

What's hot

Vauxhall Vectra 1.8 LS
Decent specification on this entry level car combined with a lack of volume of 53 plate stock has found favour in the auction halls and values holding

Jeep Grand Cherokee 2.7 CRD
A proven Mercedes-Benz sourced diesel engine and transmissions in later Grand Cherokees with generous standard equipment means this 4x4 is in demand

Jaguar XK8 Convertible
Supply of Jaguar's sleek coupe is well balanced with demand at the moment, with the convertible model particularly sought after by traders for retail sale

What's not

Large Petrol MPVs
The sector is coming under increasing pressure from smaller cars that can seat just as many people, and while diesel variants are easier to sell, interest in petrol models is dwindling fast

Mazda6 saloon
With increasing numbers appearing on the used market, people are able to pick and choose and while the hatchback and estate are still finding buyers the four-door variant is finding life more difficult

Late model Skoda Superb
Recent list price cuts on new models – more than £3,000 on top models – is hurting prospects for nearly new examples, with values coming under pressure
