The figures come from car industry organization the Swedish Association for Motor Retail Trades and Repairs (MRF). Their numbers show that sales of used cars up to five years old increased by five percent in the first half of 2017.
The organization also revealed Sweden's top ten used cars in terms of sales during 2017, and it seems the Swedes are a somewhat predictable bunch on that front. The three most popular were the Volvo V70, Volkswagen Golf and Volkswagen Passat.

The rest of the top ten is made up by the Volvo V60, Volvo XC60, Audi A4, Volvo V40, Kia Ceed, Volvo XC70, and Ford Focus.
