Sales of used BMWs increased 45 per cent in the first six months of the year, the German car marque has announced.
The premium automobile manufacturer recorded sales of 957 used Premium Selection vehicles across the Middle East between January and June, with sales rising particularly strongly in Dubai.
With 257 used BMWs changing hands in the emirate in the first half of 2009, BMW enjoyed growth of 114 per cent in Dubai.
Saudi Arabia also registered strong sales, along with Abu Dhabi and Qatar, the group confirmed.
"The programme is appealing because we give access to a quality-assured luxury product at a more affordable price," James Crichton, sales and marketing director of BMW Group Middle East.
Such qualities may make a BMW an appealing choice for those who are searching for a new vehicle after buying property in Dubai.
In May, BMW finally launched the Z4 in Dubai after it made its debut at the Detroit Motor Show earlier in the year.
