Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car? said: “While many sales shoppers prefer not to brave the cold and crowds to battle for a bargain after Christmas, whatcar.com has made browsing for a new car quicker and easier than ever before – including being able to shop between brands and dealers and for the best prices, without the need to haggle.

“There have been some great new cars launched in recent months, and with new car sales slowing in the UK there are some incredibly tempting offers out there, including on the cars rated as the very best by our reviewers. Our data shows that the 27 December is the most popular day in December for shoppers looking for a discounted deal on a new car – and that the interest builds from there.”
