The time has arrived: I can now share with you the much anticipated all-models ranking for the UK over the Full Year 2014. This data is exclusive to BSCB. As a quick reminder, the UK market is up a very robust 9% in 2014 to 2,476,435 registrations, the biggest annual tally in a decade and the 4th largest of all time: only 2002, 2003 and 2004 saw more cars registered in the history of automobile in this country. Keep in mind this complete ranking reflects registrations to end consumers and not to dealers and there are therefore slight changes compared to the previous FY2014 Top 20 I published, plus little variations in variants of one model taken into account.
For example Mercedes C-Class sales now include the Coupe, pushing the nameplate to #12 overall (+4%), the Mini, boosted by the arrival of the 5dr variant, is up to #13 with the Vauxhall Mokka still up a staggering 145% to #14, the Vauxhall Zafira is back inside the Top 20 at #18, knocking the Renault Clio down to #21. Outside the Top 20 in uncharted territory for us and this is where things get really interesting. The Mercedes A-Class is up 12 spots and a fantastic 47% to #22, the Citroen C4/C4 Picasso is up 60% to #25, the Nissan Note up 88% to #27, the Seat Leon up 52% to #28, the Skoda Octavia up 48% to #33 and the Dacia Sandero up 66% to #62.
A handful of models launched during 2013 logically post some of the largest year-on-year gains in the ranking. Among them the Peugeot 2008 is up 356% to #45, the Renault Captur is up 207% to #39 and the BMW 4 Series is up 662% to #53. The best-selling all-new nameplate in 2014 is the Peugeot 108 landing directly at #93, followed by the BMW 2 Series at #111, the Mercedes GLA at #124, Nissan Pulsar at #176 and Porsche Macan at #180.
