The SMMT has revealed the top 10 best-selling cars for 2019.


The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) has published a report for the cars with the most registrations in 2019. ‘Registration’ refers to when a car is registered with the DVLA, receiving a number plate and allowing it to be driven on the road.

The top 10 is lead by the Ford Fiesta, the UK’s favourite new car. Up to the end of July 2019, the Fiesta has been registered 48,943 times.

This is closely followed by the Ford Focus – the Fiesta’s bigger brother. The hatchback has overtaken the Volkswagen Golf with 36,102 registrations.


3. Volkswagen Golf


Volkswagen’s large hatchback, the Golf, remains one of the most popular new cars in 2019. However, with 35,781 registrations, the Focus is beginning to steal the lead.

Thanks to a wide variety of trims and a refreshed design, the Nissan Qashqai takes fourth place with 33,227 registrations for 2019.

Another supermini creeps in to the top 10 – the Volkswagen Polo. 26,173 registrations suggest that the car’s strong build quality and impressive interior design is maintaining steady sales.
