UK Best Selling Cars

Following the COVID-19 epidemic, which resulted in a sharp drop in vehicle sales last year, the UK auto industry is showing significant indications of recovery.More than one million new cars have been registered since January, indicating that new car sales are increasing. The continuing desire for electric cars is even more exciting, with the industry group predicting that by the end of 2021, pure-electric vehicles would account for 9.5 percent of all registrations. if you're ready to trade in your old vehicle for a new pair of wheels, we've compiled a list of the year's best-selling vehicles.

 

Vauxhall Corsa

With an amazing 35k registrations so far this year, the legendary Vauxhall Corsa has surpassed the Ford Fiesta — the UK's most popular vehicle for the past several years in the battle to the top.

With a dramatic new appearance, a revamped interior, and eye-catching alloy wheels, Vauxhall has given the Corsa a much-needed aesthetic makeover. Not to mention LED headlights, a rear-view camera, and a turbocharged 1.2-liter engine with direct injection.

The introduction of their pure-electric vehicle is even more intriguing, with a phenomenal 209-mile range on a single charge, an 80 percent charge in 30 minutes, zero emissions, a 50 kWh lithium-ion battery, and the ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 in 7.6 seconds.

 

Ford Fiesta 

The Ford Fiesta is in second place, with little over 23.5K registrations since January.Even if the Fiesta didn't win the award this year, it still has a lot of power. It not only looks sleek and elegant from the outside, but it's also jam-packed with cutting-edge technology to make your driving experience one to remember.The Fiesta also has a number of sophisticated safety systems, such as ‘Pre-Collision Assist' and ‘Door Edge Protectors,' which are intended to keep you and your family safe.

 

Volkswagen Golf

 Volkswagen Golf swoops into third place, and it's no surprise that it's the vehicle against which virtually every other hatchback is judged.There are many trim levels and engine options available, from the entry-level model to the top-of-the-line model, and the Golf 8 range has expanded to include the estate, GTI, and supercharged Golf R, ensuring that there is something for everyone.

Each model has a beautiful cabin, and the most recent versions include a computerised cockpit with a smart 10-inch screen that shows everything. You can manage anything from your driving position to your radio from here, and the Golf 8 will remember all of your settings once you log in!

Mercedes-Benz A Class 

The A class is more cheap than ever before, thanks to a plethora of current offers.As of last year, the Mercedes-Benz A Class is no longer only a high-end vehicle, but also one of the most popular in the United States.

The A Class has climbed to fourth position this year due to its luxurious interior, elegant appearance, and wide range of options, including hatchbacks, AMGs, and saloons. The base model has 16-inch alloy wheels, halogen headlights, an infotainment system, a 180-degree reversing camera, and heated seats.

Ford Puma

Not only that, but the Ford Puma has outstanding safety features like 'Pre-Collision Assist with Autonomous Emergency Braking,' 'Pedestrian/Cyclist Detection,' and 'Post-Collision Braking,' making it an excellent family vehicle.The Ford Puma is slipping into fifth place. What was once a popular sports coupé in the 1990s is now one of the best-handling and most practical crossover SUVs available.

The Puma features a better mild hybrid engine technology, which is typically seen in more expensive vehicles, when compared to comparable competitors such as the Nissan Juke and VW T-Roc. This enables it to be fast off the line while still providing excellent fuel efficiency, making it an excellent option for people on a tight budget.
