  New study has revealed the cars most likely to be stolen - and the BMW X5 tops the list for the sixth consecutive year.

The BMW X5 is the most stolen car in Britain, new figures revealed yesterday/Wednesday. It heads a list of stolen cars dominated by prestigious 4x4 vehicles. It is the sixth year in a row that BMW’s X5 has topped the most stolen table, according to research by vehicle recovery service Tracker, which put the spotlight on thieves’ top targets.

And the number of stolen vehicles with a keyless entry system has a reached a record high, showing thieves are becoming more adept at overriding the security on these cars Last year Tracker recovered more than £11 million worth of stolen vehicles and returned them to their owners.

The average value of cars stolen and recovered in 2014 was £25,600, up nearly nine per cent on the previous year’s value of £23,600. For the past three years, BMW models have dominated the top 10 of most stolen vehicles, but 2014 saw an increase in the range of Mercedes and Jaguar Land Rover marques being stolen.
