The US has been the biggest market for car detailing in the world, according to a recent study.
That’s according to the US Car and Transportation Research Institute, a nonprofit organization that tracks car and car-related industry trends.
The institute also analyzed the prices paid for a vehicle’s interior and found that in the United States, the average price of a new car is $1,099.99 in 2018, up 3% from 2017.
The median price of an SUV is $2,938.88, up 10% from 2016.
The cheapest luxury car is a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, at $18,959.
The most expensive car is an Audi A8, at nearly $60,000.
The study also found that the US had more than three times as many luxury cars than the average in Europe.
The UK, Australia, and Canada all have less than three new cars for every 100 people.
In Europe, the figure is around one car for every 10 people, the study found.
The US was not far behind, with more than two new cars per 100 people, while the UK had more luxury cars per capita than either of the other two European nations.
The highest prices were paid for new cars, the institute said.
“The luxury market in the U.S. has become the hottest segment, driven by the popularity of luxury cars, high-end vehicles, and the popularity and affordability of used cars,” the institute reported.
“However, the most expensive vehicle in the marketplace is the new car, which is the biggest seller.”
The institute’s study, titled “How Luxury Cars Are Sold in the USA,” was published last year, and was based on a survey of more than 10,000 consumers, in which about 60% of respondents were willing to disclose their personal car information.
For comparison, the US is home to nearly half the world’s population, with the US Department of Transportation estimated to have more than a million vehicles in service.
In 2016, the Consumer Reports Foundation reported that nearly 60%, or 4.4 million vehicles, were being sold in the country.
The Institute also found a similar gap between Europe and the US, with just over 10,200 new luxury cars sold per 100,000 people.
“In the United Kingdom, only 6,000 new luxury vehicles were sold in 2017, while in the Netherlands, just over half of cars sold were luxury models, with less than 3,000 luxury cars being sold per capita,” the Institute wrote.
The average new car sold in America costs $7,000 in 2018; the average SUV cost $13,500 in 2018.
However, the median car sold by US automakers in 2018 was a $25,000, and most luxury vehicles sold in 2018 cost more than $100,000 per vehicle.
