We are now in a position to share with you an exclusive detailed ranking for the UK over the Full Year 2016. Just outside the familiar Top 10, the Mercedes A-Class surges 39% to land in 12th place, followed by the Kia Sportage up 74% to #13 and peaking at #8 in August. The Audi A4 is up 26% to #23, the Hyundai Tucson up 151% to #25, the BMW 2 Series up 27% to #34, the Renault Kadjar up 535% to #36 for its first full year of sales and the Ford Galaxy/S-Max up 159% to #43.
Among British marques, below the Mini up 3% to #8, the Range Rover Evoque is far from having exhausted its potential with sales up 31% to stop a mere thousand units short off a stunning Top 20 finish at #21. The Land Rover Discovery Sport gains a further 44% to break into the Top 30 at #29, the Jaguar XE is up 41% to #64 while the Land Rover Discovery (+10%) and Mini Clubman (+113%) also display positive results but the Range Rover Sport (-3%), Mini Countryman/Paceman (-7%), Jaguar XF (-12%) and Range Rover (-16%) suffer.
Thankfully, the Jaguar F-Pace makes a thunderous entrance in the UK charts in 2016, missing out on a Top 100 ranking for 238 sales at #102. It is the only all-new nameplate to manage its way into the Top 150 along with the Mercedes SLC (#140).
