Simply breathtaking. That's what the continuous growth of the UK new car market really is, now celebrating its 14th consecutive month of year-on-year gain in April at +15% to 163,347 registrations, all this in a very depressed European context. Even more impressive, this best April score since 2008 is lifted by private sales, up a huge 32% year-on-year! The year-to-date total stands at 768,555 units, up a brilliant 9% over 2012. The Ford Fiesta holds onto its newly reacquired pole position but sees its market share slip down to 4.9% at 8,083 units.

Like last month, the Fiesta is followed by the Vauxhall Corsa (3.7%), Ford Focus (3.6%), VW Golf (3.2%), Vauxhall Astra (2.6%), Nissan Qashqai (2.3%) and VW Polo (2.2%). A very stable ranking indeed. The Fiat 500 is back within the Top 10 for the first time since last June and manages to reach a best-ever #8 with an excellent 3,037 sales and 1.9%. It is its 7th Top 10 month in the country after October 2009 (#10), December 2009 (#9), January 2010 (#10), April 2012 (#10), May 2012 (#10) and June 2012 (#10).
Another rare appearance in the UK Top 10 this month is the Audi A3 at #10 with 2,935 units and 1.8%. The last time the A3 was among the 10 most popular cars in the country was last August. Finally, even though it hasn't ranked in the Top 10 for the last 2 months, the Nissan Juke manages to improve its year-to-date position to a best-ever #9 thanks to 12,788 sales and 1.7%. In the brands ranking, Dacia continues to impress, selling as many units in April alone (2,016) than in the last 3 months combined (1,978) and now up to #21 in-between Volvo and Mazda...
