Cars that have the most bids are the ones that are most popular among buyers and have the most competition for purchase. It's important to note that just because a car has many bids, it doesn't necessarily mean it's the best deal or in the best condition. It's always important to thoroughly inspect the vehicle and do research on its history before making a bid.
This week, I am taking a look at one of the most popular SUVs: the 2016-20 Audi Q5.
2016-20 AUDI Q5
You can see that the average price for the car was the cheapest in November 2022. Now is the best time to buy a Audi Q5. Did you know? You can analyze any car you are looking for on autoAstat.com! Simply do your search, specify filters, and click on the Statistics tab. This feature is only available with a paid account.
Top locations gives you a visual perspective on which states sell the specified car the cheapest. As we can see from the analysis, this car is not popular in Wyoming. You may want to look for your next Audi Q5 in that area!
