We would like to share the list of TOP 10 best selling cars in the UK (2019). According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), the top 10 best-selling cars are:
- Ford Fiesta – 69,702 registrations
Fiesta is really on-trend these days. In our opinion, it is a good looking city car with its own character which the younger generation love it.
Ford sold 5,138 Ford Fiesta models in October 2019 and year-to-date 69,702 Ford Fiesta models were registered in UK.
Ford sold 222,923 cars in 2018 and 204,869 cars in 2019. Ford sales comparing 2018 with 2019 dropped by 8.1%, however, they still sell more cars than other companies.
- Volkswagen Golf – 50,468 registrations
We are very proud to see Volkswagen Golf – the legend, in the top of the list.
Volkswagen sold 3,976 Golf models in October 2019 and year-to-date 50,468 VW Golf models were sold.
VW sold 171,351 cars in 2018 and 170,773 cars in 2019. Sales dropped only by 0.3%
- Ford Focus – 49,517 registrations
Oh yes, I had one 2011 model and you know what? They deserved to be on this list. Pleasure to drive and is perfect for the city even travelling long distances. It was a very comfy car and, very practical to be honest. IKEA furniture had a pleasure to be a passenger a few times. But, it was 2011…
Ford Focus was registered 3,585 times in October 2019 and year-to-date 49,517 models were sold which is almost a quarter of all Ford models registered in 2019.
- Vauxhall Corsa – 49,341 registrations
Corsa – supermini car which is always shining in the top of the list of the best selling cars in the UK. It competes with Ford Fiesta and we think that Corsa is doing a great job.
Vauxhall registered 49,341 new Corsa models this year.
Company registered 153,093 cars in 2018 and 143,236 cars in 2019. Vauxhall sales dropped by 6.4% year-to-date.
- Mercedes-Benz A-Class – 46,923 registrations
In our opinion, it is a luxury city car. Do you want to feel like you are a VIP? So, that’s the one you need to get!
Mercedes-Benz sold 3,630 A-Class models during the October 2019 only. And, year-to-date 46,923 cars were registered.
Mercedes Benz cars will always be in the tops; just this is how it is. Company sold 149,482 cars in 2018 and 151,803 in 2019. We are not surprised, that Mercedes-Benz sales increased by 1.55 year-to-date.
- Nissan Qashqai – 46,569 registrations
Qashqai is always at the top of the list during the last five years. Sales are dropping a little bit, however, this model is still very popular.
Nissan sold 4,084 Qashqai models in October and 46,569 models year-to-date.
Nissan is making really good cars and people are choosing them with a reason. In our opinion, it is one of the best SUV’s, very practical car, fun to drive and full of new advanced technologies.
Nissan registered 91,633 cars in 2018 and 81,224 in 2019. So, there we have a 11.5% decrease in sales.
- Mini – 54,110 registrations
We cannot imagine any city in the UK without MINI cars. This model is like the symbol of UK: flag on the roof or on the rear lights. Mini – exceptional car with a unique design and beautiful history.
During the October 2019 Mini model is not in a Best-selling TOP 10, however, MINI sold 34,387 models year-to-date.
Mini registered 54,541 cars in 2018 and 54,110 in 2019. Sales are very consistent and it only dropped by 0.5% year-to-date.
- Ford Kuga – 33,848 registrations
It is the third Ford in the top 10 list. What a success for the Ford company!
Ford registered 3,041 Kuga models in October 2019. They sold 33,848 Kuga models year-to-date.
- Volkswagen Polo – 32,257 registrations
It is the second VW in the top 10 list.
Polo registered 2,191 in October 2019 and year-to-date registered 32,257 models.
We predict, that VW sales will be very consistent in the future because the last two years they registered almost the same amount of cars. Only 0.3% decrease in 2019 compared with 2018.
- Kia Sportage – 30,815 registrations
Kia company is “on fire” like we say but in a good way. All Kia models becoming more popular each year. New KIA STINGER surprised a lot, it is a real deal, however Stinger sales, not the best, maybe because of the price and practicality. Kia Sportage is the one which deserves to be in the top 10 of the best selling cars in the UK.
Sportage registered 2,588 cars in October 2019 and 30,815 cars year-to-date.
Surprisingly Kia registered 85,038 models in 2018 and 86,345 models in 2019. Sales increased by 1.5% and only Mercedes-Benz sold more cars in 2019 compared with 2018. Great job!
