UK 1992: Ford Escort reclaims top spot

Ford Escort

* See the Top 20 best-selling models by clicking on the title! Many thanks to Florian *

After two years of Ford Fiesta domination, the Ford Escort is back on top of the UK ranking with 121,140 sales and 7.6%, up 15% and one percentage point year-on-year. This may have something to do with the facelift the 5th generation received in September.

The Vauxhall Cavalier is out of luck: now that it passed the Ford Fiesta, it is below the Escort and Vauxhall is therefore not able to interrupt the 20 year-long reign of Ford models. The Cavalier sells 108,818 units at 6.8% share, just above the Ford Fiesta at 106,595 units and 6.7%.

Rover Metro

In 4th place, the Vauxhall Astra is boosted by the new generation launched last year, up 1 spot and 39% at 86,858 sales. The Rover 200 is up 13% to a record 77,214 units, stable at #6, as is the Rover Metro at #7 and 3.6%. The 5 year-old Peugeot 405 becomes the best selling foreign model in the UK at #8 and 3% share, up 17%, while the Renault Clio makes its very first appearance in the annual UK Top 10 at #10 and 2.2%.

    I’m 18 years old, have high-functioning autism and come from Busby although I was born in Rutherglen but raised in Newton Mearns. After I’ve driven on spare ground, posted off my driving license application form, got my license and taken driving lessons, I’m gonna go and buy a deep blue 5 door 1992 Frd Escort Mark Vb hatchback from a car dealer in Fenwick.
