The new car market is up a solid 10% on 2012 to 52,460 registrations here, and like in the UK overall the Ford Fiesta and Focus are the two best-selling models in the nation albeit with weaker market shares: 4.4% and 3.5% respectively vs. 5.4% and 3.9% in the UK. The VW Golf is up from #5 in the UK to a brilliant third place in Northern Ireland thanks to 1,774 sales and 3.4% share, only 60 units off the Focus!
