For the second consecutive month, the Ford Fiesta manages to top the sales charts of every single nation, distancing the VW Golf in England, the Vauxhall Corsa in Northern Ireland and Scotland and an impressive Ford Kuga in Wales. The Hyundai Tucson remains extremely strong at #3 in Northern Ireland where the Kia Sportage is #8 and the Renault Kadjar #10 year-to-date.
