Sales of used cars in Japan rose 1.7 percent in fiscal 2015 from the previous year to 3,733,321 units, marking the first growth in three years, an industry body’s data showed Tuesday.

The number of used vehicles, excluding minicars with engines no larger than 660 cubic centimeters, however, was the second lowest since comparable data became available in 1978, according to the Japan Automobile Dealers Association.
