The latest new car registration figures for March 2018 are out with the top 5 cars sold highlighted below.
5. Ford Focus 9,403 units
The current Ford Focus is coming to an end now with a world premiere of the new Ford Focus model streamed live on YouTube just this week to a worldwide audience. The new Focus will be available to order from June/July with deliveries taking place around September/October. There will be a staged release with only certain trim levels available from the off and the rest will follow. The current Ford Focus is still available with only certain engines and spec to choose from with huge savings just call 0161 946 3500 for availability.
4. Vauxhall Corsa 11,718 units
The Vauxhall Corsa is now 25 years old, the replacement for the Nova was released in 1993 and has gone on to be one of Britain’s best selling cars with Two million sold in the UK and 9.86 million sold around the world. With a completely new electric Corsa due next year the supermini is still maintaining sales with 15,352 sold this year so far. The Corsa (which means “race” in Italian) has been well marketed over the years with sales to driving schools such as BSM and over 20,000 have been supplied to the UK police over the past ten years.
3. Nissan Qashqai 12,018 units
The top selling Crossover in the UK is now available with ProPilot, Nissan’s most advanced driver assistance technology. A special ProPilot one edition will be available with lots of extra’s thrown in and is based on the top of the range Tekna+. For those that miss out ProPilot will be a £795 option for those choosing a Tekna or Tekna+ with the 1.6dCi and Xtronic (automatic transmission). The new semi autonomous driving technology will make the car come to a complete stop in traffic and will then set off again when the flow of traffic resumes. Call 0161 946 3500 to check stock availability or simply register/login to configure your Qashqai.
2. Volkswagen Golf 13,996 units
The second best selling car for March and the year to date with 21,203 units registered so far, keeping the rival Ford Focus behind. The hybrid Golf GTE has been quite the success recently for Volkswagen with demand outstripping supply, so much so that VW had to suspend orders earlier this year to play catch up. The demand rose by 27% for the 2017 model and we think this was mainly down to a price drop of nearly £3,500 plus a few extra tweaks to the lineup.
1. Ford Fiesta 19,272 units
The new Fiesta is a continuing success for Ford with no other rival even close when you look at the figures below. The best-selling car in 2017 is now quickly running away with the top spot in 2018. The 197bhp three-cylinder turbo ST is only months away and will definitely add more punch, to the sale figures. See our top deals on the new Ford Fiesta
