Top 3 Best-Selling Cars In 2015

The year 2015 was the best for the UK car industry in history according to recently released figures by The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders with around 2.6million new cars registered over the course of the 12 months.

As members of the SMMT, at Sell Your Jamjar, the UK’s first online car buying service, we thought we would take a look at what were the best-selling top three cars.

1) FORD FIESTA

No prizes for guessing this one. The Ford Fiesta topped the charts as the best-selling car of the year for the SEVENTH year in a row. We had to go back to 2008 to find the last time it was beaten to first place – and even that was by an another Ford car – the Focus.

The Fiesta was third that year with sales of 94,989 against the Focus’s 101,593, while this year the Fiesta saw 133,434 new registrations (up from 121,254 in 2014). Launched in 1976, the supermini continues to be a big hit with drivers because it is practical, economical and affordable.

Ford’s seventh generation Fiesta is scheduled to be launched in 2017 so it is unlikely to be knocked off top spot anytime soon.

 

2 VAUXHALL CORSA

Runner-up spot in 2015 is the Vauxhall Corsa with 92,077 sales following the launch of the all-new Fourth Generation supermini which overtook the Ford Focus year on year as the second best-selling car of the year.

With an increase in sales of more than 10,000 from 2014, Vauxhall, which was founded in the UK in 1857 by Alexander Wilson and still has its headquarters in Luton, Bedfordshire, will have pleased bosses at General Motors Company as it sold 81,783 units in 2014.

Designed to take on arch rival, the Fiesta, the Corsa still falls around 40,000 models behind Ford’s gem so it will need to have strong sales in 2016 to have a chance of taking the crown this year.

 

3) FORD FOCUS

Yes, there will be a plenty of happy people at The Glass House this year- the building also commonly known as the Ford World Headquarters and Henry Ford II World Center – despite losing second spot to Vauxhall in 2015 as the Focus completes the top three in the UK.

With sales of 83,816, the Focus was some way behind the Fiesta – and down from 85,140 in 2014, but the family car is great value for money and offers a first class driving experience.

It is also about to get a stylish refresh so Ford, while no doubt looking over its shoulder at the Corsa, can expect sales of the Focus to increase in 2016. At Sell Your Jamjar, we expect to be buying plenty of older model Focus cars that is for sure.
