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.
