The top 10 most stolen and recovered vehicles in 2017 has recently been revealed placing the Mercedes-Benz C Class in pole position for the first time, rising from 4th place in 2016 with the BMW X5 dropping to second place for only the second time since 2011.

TRACKER who conducted this research saw a 5% year-on-year increase in vehicle thefts and recoveries in 2017, exceeding 12.5 million in the total value of vehicles being stolen. A 30% increase has been seen in the number of stolen vehicles recovered by TRACKER since 2014.
