BMW X5 is most frequently stolen car in UK for the fifth year in a row

According to the latest figures from TRACKER.co.uk, the BMW X5 remains top of the car on thief’s shopping list.

The BMW X5 was the car most frequently stolen and recovered in 2013, making this the fifth year in a row that it has topped the table.

Tracker is quite big and their data clearly is worth something as last year they recovered nearly £8,500,000 worth of stolen vehicles and returned them to their owners.

Last year the second most stolen vehicle according to TRACKER’s figures was BMW M3.

“It’s clear from our latest figures that thieves continue to target prestige models with the most expensive car recovered being worth £90,000,” says Adrian Davenport, Police Liaison Officer for TRACKER. “The average value of the cars we recovered in 2013 was just £23,600, down on the average for the year before. This proves that you don’t have to be a luxury car owner to be at risk from thieves looking to make a quick profit.

Top ten cars by make and model most frequently stolen and recovered in 2013:
1. BMW X5
2. BMW M3
3. Mercedes C Class
4. Audi S4
5. BMW M5
6. BMW 3 Series
