    DVLA data reveals which cars were most commonly stolen in 2020, with the Ford Fiesta topping the list.

    The most stolen cars in the UK last year have been revealed, with the Ford Fiesta topping the list.

    There were 3,392 reports of Fiestas being stolen in 2020, although this will come as little surprise since the supermini is the UK’s perennial best-seller, with 49,174 new Fiestas registered last year alone.

    The second-most stolen car last year may raise more eyebrows, as this was the considerably rarer and more expensive Range Rover, of which 2,881 were taken. The Range Rover is susceptible both to covetous glances and expensive parts, but its maker, Land Rover, dismissed concerns it is particularly vulnerable to theft, saying: “Land Rover vehicles conform to the legislation at the time of manufacture and [the company] takes the issue very seriously, working tirelessly to counter the ever-changing nature of vehicle thefts.”

    Land Rover is one of the first manufacturers to successfully protect its new vehicles against relay attack which has been independently verified by the ADAC and Which? in 2019.

    Meanwhile, the third-most stolen car in 2020 was the UK’s third-best-selling car, too, with 1,975 Volkswagen Golfs falling into criminals’ hands.

    No11 is the Ford Kuga  620 cars stolen.

    I think they should have a breakdown of how many thefts were keyless that were stolen, now that would be intresting to know as well as how many were house raids to get the keys or car jackings…

    The thieves are more interested in the catalytic converter these days than the car itself, none traceable and unlikely to get caught.
    I wonder if they’ve done a survey on the most popular car to have it’s cat nicked.

    Wish they’d catch these mean thieves and return the cat’s to owners. Might stop ’em crapping in my garden.
