After the overall UK Top 10 and thanks to SMMT we can now share with you the Top 10 best-sellers for each UK nation for January. As is often the case, England (+4%) is the engine of growth for the entire country and represents 85.5% of total UK sales this month. Scotland (+2%) and Wales (+0.4%) are also in positive, but Northern Ireland declines (-3%). The Ford Fiesta tops 3 out of 4 nations in January: England, Northern Ireland and Wales. In Scotland, Vauxhall manages a historical 1-2-3, the first since BSCB has started following UK nations two years ago: the Corsa leads the way with 754 sales, follow by the Mokka at 498 and the Astra at 447.
