Today we can share with you as a BestSellingCarsBlog exclusive the Top 120 best-selling models in the UK, instead of the traditional (yet very restrictive) Top 10, allowing us a fascinating and up-to-the-minute insight into this market. The Vauxhall Mokka (#11), Nissan Juke (#12) and Ford Kuga (#13) are knocking on the UK Top 10’s door this month, and for the latter a monthly Top 10 ranking would be a historical first. The Audi A1 is up to a spectacular 17th spot vs. #49 over Q1 2015, the Skoda Octavia is up to #18 (Q1: #35), the VW Passat up to #23 (#67), Skoda Fabia up to #25 (#66), BMW 2 Series up to #44 (#84) and Ford Ecosport up to #70 (#91). The Nissan Pulsar is slowly stirring itself in the right direction, at a still very discreet 76th spot in July vs. #94 in Q1 2015.
Mercedes justifies its fantastic brand performance (+21% and 5th place overall) with a Top 10 ranking from the C-Class, the A-Class at #19, E-Class at #32, GLA at #84 and CLA at #86 (vs. #103 and #178 respectively during Q1). The Volvo XC90 comes back to life thanks to the new generation: back up to #118. There are no less than ten 2015 launches in the July UK Top 120, all brilliantly led by the all-new Jaguar XE surging to a very impressive 35th spot vs. #16 for the BMW 3 Series it blatantly is aiming at. The Hyundai Tucson misses the Top 50 by less than 100 units at #53 whereas only demo cars would have been registered by now.
Further down, the Citroen C4 Cactus makes a remarkable arrival at #75, already the brand’s third best-seller in the UK below the C1 at #39 and the C4 Picasso at #54. The long-awaited return of the Viva nameplate, known as the Opel Karl elsewhere, points its bonnet at #78 this month – still relatively shy, the Fiat 500X is at #89 and the only Fiat in the Top 100 along with the 500 (#8), the Land Rover Discovery Sport is already marking a pause at #95 vs. #65 in Q1, and the Jeep Renegade, Smart Forfour, Suzuki Vitara and Mazda CX-3 also make their first appearance.
Detailed H1 2015 UK figures will be uploaded in September.
