New record for the Mercedes C-Class

Although the threat of Brexit provided for otherwise, car sales in the Uk follow the wind in its sails. In January we have recorded a total of 174.564 units, which implies a growth of 2.9% in comparison with January of 2016 will we See a change of trend in the future? At the moment it seems not.

Between the two is the Volkswagen Golf, with a creditable silver medal after increasing their enrollment a magnificent 43%.

The Nissan Qashqai continues to lead the segment C-SUV, but your domain is becoming less and less

As happened in December 2016, the Nissan Juke has been the most popular model of the japanese brand to outperform the Nissan Qashqai, which has been seen to draw back its demand for a significant 28%. In fact the Qashqai sees the threat of the Kia Sportage increasingly close since the Korean has been put in the Top 10, being the third time I achieved it in the last six months.

Among the manufacturers, Ford shows a hegemony relentless and shows a growth similar to that of the market (+3%) extending its advantage with respect to Vauxhall (-9%). Who gives a big jump is Mercedes (+11%), which comes to the third position, clearly above the rest of premium brands. Also worthy of note was the growth of Kia (+51%), that serves to get to a brilliant eighth place in the table.
