Top Ten Best Selling Cars in the UK

Posted on 28 June 2011 by Tony Santos

If I have to sell my car maybe I’ll be driving home a Ford Focus, because mainly it was one of the best selling cars so far this year. According to SMMT car data for the month of May, “New car registrations for May were down just 1.7% on 2010 levels, with strong performances in the fleet and business sectors,” said Paul Everitt, SMMT Chief Executive. “Consumers remain cautious, but with significantly improved fuel economy, service plans and more affordable finance, there is great value on offer across the market.” Ford still remains on top driving home the first and second slot with Ford Fiesta and Focus, Volkswagen Golf, Vauxhall Corsa and Astra completing the top 5.

Looking at the past months of 2011 UK Car Data, this top 10 have been just rolling in and out of their slot but maintaining on the top 10 list. We also see the trend goes on spacious compact car with decent fuel efficiency. Now I don’t think that moving on buying a new car isn’t a bad idea at all, maybe I’ll be needing to sell my car London to grab any of the top 5.
