So, here's what we were told in the main police department. Over the past year, more than 52, 000 cars were stolen in Russia, an increase of this indicator amounted to 10%. Thieves prefer to work in megacities: more than half of the stolen cars are in Moscow and St. Petersburg (together with the regions). The most popular are the frets: a third of all stolen. The "Japanese" place from second to fourth: Toyota - 12%, Mazda - 5.2%, Mitsubishi - 4.1%. On the fifth line GAZ - 3.9%. Yes, the demand for gazelles is not bad.
Among foreign cars, the most popular among thieves were the Mazda CX-7 and Toyota RAV4. More often they began to abduct Renault, Hyundai, and Kia. Interest in BMW and Mercedes has fallen. In the last places of the criminal rating are “Saab”, “Jeep”, “Jaguar” and Chinese brands.
"Work" literally boils in Moscow and the region. Here in 2012, more than 15, 000 cars were stolen from a 7 millionth fleet (plus 4% compared with 2011, or 800 more). About four dozen cars leave the hands of their rightful owners daily, in Moscow itself - 22–25. In the capital, more often than on other models, they smacked on Mazda-3, Mitsubishi-Lancer, Mazda-6, Ford Focus, Lada Priora.
They steal a lot. And find no more than 14% of cars.
