World-leading supplier of technical information for automotive professionals publishes fifth consecutive annual report

01 January 2020, Bracknell – Autodata, part of Solera Holdings, Inc., a global leader in risk and asset management data and software solutions for the insurance and automotive industries, today announced the publication of its Most Serviced Vehicles 2019 report.

In the USA, the new most serviced motorcycle was the Kawasaki Ninja replacing the Honda CRF which had held first position in the last two reports. The Honda TRX was in second position and the Honda CRF now third. Japanese manufacturers continue to dominate the top 10 most serviced motorcycles filling the first nine places. The Polaris Ranger was the only American manufacturer represented in tenth position.

Outside of North America where Autodata is widely- recognized as a leading provider of technical information for cars as well as motorcycles, Ford was the overall most serviced car manufacturer when all markets are combined. However, a notable observation is the continued prominence of Volkswagen which is in first place as the most serviced brand in 55% of the countries surveyed.

As well as highlighting the most serviced vehicles, the report indicates some key trends in the automotive aftermarket sector and also reinforces the dominance of national brands being the most serviced cars within their respective countries. In Germany, all top ten places were attributed to German cars and it was the same for French cars in France. In Italy, Italian cars made up 50% of the top ten and in Sweden, Swedish cars accounted for 70% of the top ten with Volvo models filling the top three positions.

Over 85,000 workshops subscribe to Autodata’s applications which generate this report. Globally, the top three most accessed Autodata product modules included Engine oil, Technical specifications and Camshaft drive system. In total technicians checked over 47 million pieces of technical information through Autodata.
