as it is written in the script, the Ford Fiesta is the most sought-after model and is seen accompanied on the podium by another car of the brand of the oval, the Ford Focus (3rd). Between the two is the Volkswagen Golf, with a creditable silver medal after increasing their enrollment a magnificent 43%.
Mercedes C Class has been the great protagonist of this beginning of the year as it has been cast in an impressive fourth place, the best since ever been achieved this model in the british market. The Vauxhall Astra closes the Top 5, its lowest position in the ranking since September 2016.
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.
