Cars are continually going up in popularity with more and more being bought each year. In 2015 there was a record breaking amount of new cars sold and 2016 is on its way to be even bigger. We’ve discovered the top five most popular cars in the UK so far this year. The list appears to have continued the trend of the most popular cars from last year.
1. Ford Fiesta
The most popular car in the UK is still, after many years, the Ford Fiesta having had around 44,000 registrations in 2016. Last year, Ford sold almost 125,500 Fiesta. This car is the king of the superminis and also holds the title of Britain’s favourite car overall. There are a variety of fantastic models to choose from including the favoured Fiesta ST model.
2. Vauxhall Corsa
Vauxhall Corsa takes second place with around 28,639 registrations so far this year. That’s just over half of how many the Fiesta has had so far. In 2015 the Corsa came second with 85,163 sold across the country. That’s around 40,000 less than how many the Fiesta sold, however it did outstrip number 3 by almost 7000 sales.
3. Ford Focus
The Ford Focus has been in the top 5 bestselling UK car for years and it is still retaining its third place position. So far this year the Focus has garnered 26,000 new registrations and last year Ford sold 78,834 Focus ensuring it is still one of the most popular cars in Britain.
If the Golf ever leaves the top five, then someone catastrophic will have occurred. But for now it’s still in fourth place with 25,000 new registrations this year. Last year it was also in fourth place with almost 70,000 sold.
5. Nissan Qashqai
The Nissan Qashqai has had an incredible start to the year with 23,140 registrations this year and looks like a serious contender when taking on the smaller hatchbacks. It has almost made up half the sales of the whole of last year so Nissan are on target for smashing last year out of the park. Nissan last year sold 57,565 Qashqai in 2015.
If buying is beyond your financial situation, then why not consider leasing one of these amazing vehicles. Personal car leasing is simple and in many ways is great value for money compared with outright purchasing. Cheap car leasing is available on all these cars if you are interested.
