The fact that an SUV like the Ford Kuga is outselling the likes of popular hatchback models speaks volumes about just how much the market has changed. It makes sense though, as buyers have switched to bigger, more refined and safer cars like the Kuga, which is certainly one of the best in its class.

Who’d have thought the Mercedes A-Class, Mercedes’ first-ever hatchback, would feature so consistently in the top 10 best selling cars in the UK. It has sold so well as it is available on very reasonable finance and leasing deals, and secondly, it is favoured highly by company car owners and fleet managers.

Vauxhall Corsa - 54,239 cars sold

Another unsurprising feature in this list. The new Focus continues the solid sales performance of the last one, and when the range is largely powered by modern Ecoboost petrol engines, this is a car which is comfortably withstanding the changing of the market.

You probably could have guessed that this was going to be top of the list. It’s been the best selling car in the country for quite some time now.
