Ten Most-Searched Car Models of 2013
Google just released its list of the top searches of 2013 and revealed some interesting results. The list has some of the top selling brands of this year, but the top three are brands that sell in fall lower volume. The high-volume brands are no brainers, but we’ll try to shed some light on why you were searching for cars that you were least likely to buy. We’ll also look at the most-searched single car models, as determined by digging into each brand’s search data a little more. Here’s what we came up with:
The Mazda3 is a fun-to-drive small car, and the searches likely benefit from the combination of consumers and the performance community.
9.) Subaru Impreza
The Impreza was new for the 2014 model year, and though sales are strong, we suspect a lot of people searching this car were looking for the forthcoming WRX performance sedan.
8.) Dodge (RAM) 1500
Chrysler split off the Ram truck brand from Dodge in 2010, but apparently that notion has not yet sunk in with everyone. The RAM 1500 was announced as Car and Driver’s Truck of the Year and with sales still running strong, Dodge…er– RAM can still get through buyers not knowing what the brand is really named.
7.) GMC Sierra 1500
Both the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra are all-new for the 2014 model year, and when the heart of your searches are in Wyoming, North Dakota, Louisiana and Arkansas, it is safe to say the Sierra is being searched by folks who are seriously considering buying a truck.
