The Brits are a car loving nation. They care about the nuances of motoring, even when they are stealing. The fact that the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S was announced as the car most likely to be stolen in Britain this year is proof of this argument.
The thieves and crooks of the United Kingdom take car to still not the basic two-wheel-drive 911, but rather the four-wheel-drive Carrera 4, and that in the sporty ‘S’ guise no less. The weather being what it is in Britain, you would need four-wheel-drive if you want to have a chance of evading the rozzers should they come after you, or if you are doing a heist of some sort that requires a high speed getaway car. And this is not the first instance of British criminals being picky with their cars. There is a famous story that the bank robbers back in the 60s favored the Mk II Jaguar with the 3.8 engine for its superior handling, acceleration and stopping power.
In any case, the top five most stealable cars of 2016 in the United Kingdom according to MyCarCheck.com are as follows:
|Porsche 911 Carrera 4S
|Mercedes-Benz CLC 220 Cdi Sport Auto
|Range Rover Evoque Dynamics D4A
