And it's not what you'd expect... at aaaaaall.

The NZ Police have revealed what the most stolen car in Canterbury (and therefore most likely all of New Zealand) is. 

*Drum roll please*

The Mazda Demio is the most popular car to be stolen in our little country - weird, right? 

Over the past four months, the New Zealand Police have noticed an increasing number of Mazda Demios being reportedly stolen. 

There were a total of 29 Mazda Demios stolen in the first TWO MONTHS of 2017, which is just insane. 

Area Prevention Manager Paul Reeves says, "offenders see these vehicles as an easy target and believe police will not take a second look at them, which is not the case."
