Thanks to our partnership with SMMT we can share with you today detailed 2016 sales for Wales. Keep in mind this is a zoom in for each UK nation, these figures are already included in the UK Full Year 2016 Report. The Welsh new car market is down 1.4% year-on-year in 2016 to 91.940 units, accounting for just 3.4% of the overall UK market. The Ford Fiesta remains by far the most popular nameplate in Wales in 2016: despite deliveries down 10%, it sells 2.5 times the amount of the #2, the Ford Focus (-23%). The Vauxhall Corsa also struggles in third place at -30%. Reversely, the Ford Kuga (+6%), VW Golf (+14%), Dacia Sandero (+16%) and Toyota Yaris (+7%) all show strong health inside the Top 10.
