Now updated with Ford Mustang data
After detailing the Top 10 brands and Top 20 models, as usual on BSCB we now delve into the full detail of both rankings. Final figures show Volkswagen slightly more dynamic (+5%) but still lags well below this month’s market growth (+14%) and Fiat even more impressive at +24% in 6th place. Outside the Top 10, Kia (+26%), Volvo (+21%), Mazda (+40%), Honda (+47%), Land Rover (+40%), Jeep (+24%), Lexus (+29%) all frankly outperform the market while Ssangyong (+100%), Infiniti (+103%) and Jaguar (+144%) post the largest year-on-year gains in the Top 40. Over in the models ranking, final figures place the Peugeot 308 above the Nissan Qashqai at #9 but the rest of the Top 20 in unchanged on the preliminary data published a couple of weeks ago.
Below, the Seat Leon soars 8 spots on January to an outstanding #21 ranking, the VW Touran is up 45% to #35, the VW Transporter up 66% to #47, the Skoda Superb up 91% to #53 and the BMW X1 up 119% to #59, all of the latter three boosted by recently launched new generations. It goes the same for the Volvo XC90 up from just 20 units in February 2015 to 2.676 and #123 this month. Among new nameplates, the SUV attack continues: the Hyundai Tucson ranks #24, the Renault Kadjar at #32, Mercedes GLC #85, Mazda CX-3 #89 and Honda HR-V #134, plus we welcome the Jaguar F-Pace at #261 this month. ‘Traditional” new nameplates are weaker: the Fiat Tipo is at #132, the Renault Talisman #158 and the Jaguar XE #159 with the Mercedes SLC making its first appearance at #237.
