Often, consumer reports in the auto industry take into account aggregated factors of safety, reliability, and owner satisfaction. Most of these reports overlook the power of desirability, which may provide insight on the depreciation rate of vehicles over time. Carmax.com has taken a different approach to solve for this issue, and has put together a broad list of the most searched vehicles of 2017 and broken it down by region, state, and certain spotlighted cities. The data was pulled from the search statistics of carmax.com and provides a comprehensive overview as to what consumers are searching right now as well as the features they prefer.
