In a European context getting more depressed each month, the good health of the UK new car market is starting to look a little insolent: June marks the 16th consecutive month of year-on-year gain at +13% to 214,957 registrations, meaning UK sales are up 10% on 2012 halfway through the year at 1,163,623 units. Even better: sales to private buyers are up a whopping 21% on June 2012 at 96,931 units! Very stable models ranking, with the entire Top 5 identical to the year-to-date ranking: the Ford Fiesta leads the way ahead of the Ford Focus, Vauxhall Corsa, Astra and VW Golf.
BMW excels this month in the UK: it is back up to #4 brand above Audi and below just Ford, Vauxhall and Volkswagen. The BMW 3 Series manages to rank within the Top 10 for the 2nd time this year and the 5th time in the last 12 months at #6 with 5,432 sales and 2.5%, while its little sister the BMW 1 Series makes its 6th appearance in the monthly Top 10 in the last 12 months at #8 with 4,687 sales and 2.2%, and now ranks #10 year-to-date at 20,007 units and 1.7%. Finally, notice Renault finally up 34% to #18 and Dacia passing Chevrolet and Jaguar to now rank #23 brand with 1,829 sales.
