Thanks to SMMT we can share with you the Top 10 best-sellers in April for each UK nation. Keep in mind this data is already included in the UK monthly updates, this is a zoom in by nation. England (+3%) and Northern Ireland (+5%) outpace the overall UK market (+2%) whereas Wales (-3%) and Scotland (-5%) actually lose ground. Year-to-date however, all four nations are improving vs. 2015 with England up 5%, Northern Ireland up 3%, Wales up 2% and Scotland up 1%. This month the Ford Fiesta manages to top the sales charts of every single nation including Scotland where it normally lags behind the Vauxhall Corsa, uncharacteristically dropping out of the April Top 10 there.

Hyundai Tucson Northern Ireland April 2016The Hyundai Tucson is #2 in Northern Ireland so far in 2016. 

The English market, accounting for 86.3% of overall UK sales, is traditionally almost identical to UK charts. There are some changes this month though: the Vauxhall Corsa ranks at a higher #5, the Nissan Juke replaces the Kia Sportage inside the Top 10 and the Mercedes A-Class manages to stay within the YTD Top 10 at #10, making it a historical two Mercedes in the Top 10 along with the C-Class at #9. The Hyundai Tucson hits an outstanding 2nd place in Northern Ireland (also its ranking YTD), the Seat Ibiza (#5) and Kia Sportage (#8) also reaching their best ranking there. Scotland sees the Vauxhall Astra hit #3 and the Fiat 500 #5 while Wales has the Dacia Sandero at #4, the Ford Kuga at #5 and the Vauxhall Mokka at #6. Heroes of the past months, the Renault Kadjar holds onto the #9 YTD spot in Northern Ireland, the Vauxhall Viva holds the same spot in Scotland where the Renault Clio replaces the Captur inside the YTD Top 10.
