Vehicle Theft Statistics 2015

Vehicle Theft Statistics 2015

Figures from last year have shown that the Range Rover Sport was the most stolen and recovered vehicle in the UK in 2015, followed closely by the BMW X5:*

1.     Range Rover Sport
2.     BMW X5
3.     Range Rover Vogue
4.     Mercedes Benz C220
5.     BMW 3 Series
6.     Mercedes Benz C63
7.     BMW 5 Series
8.     Audi RS4
9.     Range Rover Autobiography
10.   Audi Q7

It is believed that the majority fo these thefts are down to the growth in keyless car entry and ignitions systems that are prone to hacking; where criminals target these vehicles by bypassing their security systems, using technology they’ve bought on the internet. Whilst it’s common for car thieves to target premium vehicles, we should not underestimate the massive appetite for Ford, Vauxhall, and VW models which are stolen in even greater numbers. A Home Office Report published in January this year points to “significant challenges with manufacturer security systems and suggests that fitting a tracking device could be the best solution.”*There are a range of affordable insurance approved trackers, starting with the Smartrack Protector Pro at only £185 supplied and fitted!
Another popular tracking device is the Trafficmaster Trackstar as it is specifically Range Rover, Land Rover, BMW and Jaguar approved.
