- Ford Fiesta
The Ford Fiesta ended 2018 comfortably as the UK’s best-selling new car, and the supermini maintained that popularity in the first half of 2019; it appears to be dominating the sales chart, finishing July in top spot with 5,646 registrations and a big gap to its arch nemesis, the Vauxhall Corsa (3,079).Despite getting bigger with each new version, the Fiesta remains a delight to drive, with improvements in interior space and build quality over the old car and a great range of engine options further helping to make it a tempting buy.
- Ford Focus
Despite only ranking fourth for the month of July (3,863 registrations), the Focus has had enough sales under its belt to keep it a Ford one-two for the year so far, though it’s a close-run thing with the VW Golf — just 321 sales separate the rival hatchbacks.While retaining its everyman appeal the new Focus has a much more upmarket cabin than the one found in previous generations, while continuing to excel in the areas of handling and driving pleasure. And with good standard equipment levels, it’s no surprise the Focus is still a strong seller.
- Volkswagen Golf
Consistent popularity has made the Volkswagen Golf one of the UK’s best-selling family hatchbacks, and was the second-best seller overall in July. It’s locked in a close battle with the Ford Focus for best-of-the-rest honours behind the all-conquering Fiesta.The Golf is a timeless choice with a high quality interior and decent driving dynamics, so it thoroughly deserves its success. It also bodes well for the all-new Golf that’s due to go on sale before the end of the year.
- Nissan Qashqai
In 2018 the Nissan Qashqai’s popularity appeared to be on the wane as a wave of new rivals recently entered the crowded compact SUV market. But despite the fresh-faced competition, the Qashqai is selling incredibly well once again this year; it currently sits in fourth place overall in the charts. July was another good month for the model, with its 4,047 registrations being around 1,000 more than its next closest rival, the Ford Kuga.
- Vauxhall Corsa
It may be nearing the end of its life cycle but the Vauxhall Corsa remains one of the UK’s best-selling new cars; hot on the heels of the fourth-placed Nissan Qashqai. Vauxhall will no doubt be looking to shift as many Corsas as possible off forecourts before an all-new model replaces the current car later this year.
