Thanks to our partnership with SMMT we can now share with you the Top 10 best-sellers for each UK nation in July. Keep in mind this is only a zoom in by nation, all sales figures are already included in the UK update. Accounting for 88% of the total UK market, England (-9%) evolves very much like the UK overall, while Northern Ireland performs significantly better while staying in negative at -2.3%. Wales (-12.5%) and Scotland (-13.7%) implode. The models ranking reshuffle we witness in the UK charts is applied across the board: the Ford Fiesta does not win any nation, which are shared between the VW Golf (England and Northern Ireland) and the Ford Focus (Scotland and Wales). This shift is particularly marked in Wales where the Ford Fiesta traditionally is head-and-shoulders above the competition but freefalls 72% there this month.
In England indeed, by far the largest nation in terms of sales, the VW Golf manages to outsell the Ford Focus for the top spot, with the only other change compared to the UK ranking is the Mercedes A-Class above the Vauxhall Corsa at #8. The Kia Sportage justifies its record 6th place in the UK overall by a presence in the Top 10 of each and every nation: it ranks 6th in England, Northern Ireland and Wales and 4th in Scotland. The Ford Kuga is also strong: only missing the England Top 10 but ranking #2 in Wales and #5 in Northern Ireland. Other one-off performances include the Skoda Fabia #3 in Northern Ireland, the Seat Leon #4 in the same nation and the Audi A1 cracking the Scottish Top 10 for the first time since BSCB started following the UK nation separately in 2013.
