US: the top five most stolen new and used cars in 2013

High end drivers of sports and luxury cars are among the most vigilant owners of new or used cars – so thieves have cleverly moved to target the far more accessible family car.

There’s a huge number of reasons for the top used/new cars stolen each year to feature more common cars – among them being wide availability and the fact that they attract far less attention then a flashy, $100,000 plus sports or luxury ride.

The most recent “Hot Lists” for new and used cars that get most often stolen has been compiled by the National Insurance Crime Board (NCIB) in Des Plaines, Illinois. You might not even be surprised that Corvettes or S-Classes are not on the list – because they actually mirror the best selling list, with models like Ford’s F-150 or Toyota’s Camry.

“The drop in thefts is good news for all of us,” says NICB president and CEO Joe Wehrle. “But it still amounts to a vehicle being stolen every 45 seconds and losses of over $4 billion a year. That’s why we applaud the vehicle manufacturers for their efforts to improve anti–theft technology and pledge to continue to work with our insurance company members and law enforcement to identify and seek vigorous prosecution of the organized criminal rings responsible for so many of these thefts.”

Here are the top five most stolen cars from all model years during last year, with NCIB also providing a total units tally:

1. Honda Accord (53,995)
2. Honda Civic (45,001)
3. Chevrolet Silverado (27,809)
4. Ford F-150 (26,494)
5. Toyota Camry (14,420)

We also have the top five most stolen cars from model year 2013, again with total units:

1. Nissan Altima (810)
2. Ford Fusion (793)
3. Ford F-150 (775)
4. Toyota Corolla (669)
5. Chevrolet Impala (654)
