Introducing the
Cox Automotive
Insight Report 2020


In collaboration with Grant Thornton

Welcome to the third annual Cox Automotive Insight Report.

This brings together expert opinion from across the automotive industry alongside our own data and analysis to provide a robust picture of the sector and factors we believe will have the biggest impact over the next 12 months and beyond. 

Once again, we are delighted to partner with Grant Thornton to deliver a holistic overview of the market, wider economy and external trends. We look at forecasts and key trends for the new and used car and van markets; explore the impact of technology and alternative fuels; consider the role of the vehicle in daily life; and look at the financial pressures hitting the sector.  

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to produce this report, including partners such as the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA), LexisNexis, Marshall Motor Group, Pivotal (JLR), Cazoo, and everyone who has taken part in our primary research throughout the past year. 

We know there is plenty of discussion and debate out in the market, with some fantastic reports and insights from very credible organisations. Our intention is to add to these conversations, and we look forward to hearing from you with your own views and contributions. 

We hope you find these insights valuable, and we wish you the best of luck for your business endeavours in 2021.
