Top Gear Sparks Surge In Used Subaru WRX Searches – Ruge’s Subaru

17 Mar

It’s the final episode of this season of Top Gear! That’s a shame. But they’re going out with a… You probably really liked the two-part Top Gearspecial that concluded last weekend for two reasons: one, it was suitably Top Gear. And two, it was conducted with three wagons.

If you’re like me, you probably thought a Volvo 850R Wagon would make a great car to track down and it crossed your mind every time James May scraped the front of his as he drove on some awful gravelly road.

Many of you in the UK are not like me, because you’ve spent the last week searching for a Subaru Impreza WRX wagon, because as MSN Cars reported, searches for those old cars were up dramatically while the shows were being aired.

According to the data from Motors.co.uk, search traffic for used WRX wagons was up 826% while the first part was airing and 668% during the second part. Far more than the jump in searches for 850Rs or BMW 528i Tourings like the one Jeremy ruined, err… drove.
