Average UK Car Is 7.44 Years Old

According to British Car Auctions (BCA), the average age of cars on UK roads is 7.44 years. Due to slow sales of new cars and economical uncertainty, the figure is higher compared to 2008, when the average age was 6.93 years.

Currently around seven million cars on the road are six to eight years old. In addition there are 13 million cars that are older than nine years old.

BCA sais that the financial pressure is one of the reasons that people are buying older cars again and that company fleets have been holding onto their cars for longer and changing them less frequently.
