Top 10: UK car sales Q3 2014

Figures just published by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders show that 1,958,196 new cars were registered in the UK to the end of September. While the figure represents a 9.1% increase on the same period last year, market growth appears to be levelling off.

Take September in isolation, for example. Registrations for this important plate-change month amounted to 425,861 in 2014, making it the best September in a decade. However, compared to 2013’s total, that was a rise of only 5.6%.

Unsurprisingly, the Ford Fiesta has easily maintained its position as the UK’s best-selling car, followed by the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Corsa.

Yes, it's still the UK's most popular car.

Indeed, the entire top ten league table is virtually identical to last quarter’s. There was just one change in positions, thanks to the Audi A3 and Volkswagen Polo swapping places.
