One of the most recent market additions on BSCB gets a H1 2018 update thanks to our partnership with SMMT. We labelled it London for easy reading, but the area covered is actually Greater London. New car sales in the area dive 4.3% year-on-year to 47.462 units vs. -3.5% in the UK overall. Toppled by the VW Golf in 2017, the Ford Fiesta is back in charge in London albeit with a thin 62 unit-advantage after 6 months while the Nissan Qashqai rounds up the podium as it was already the case over Q1. Below, the ranking order gets a good shake: the Audi A3 gains two spots to #4 whereas it doesnt rank inside the UK Top 10 over the period, the Mini is also up two vs. Q1 to #5 and the VW Polo is up three to #7. In contrast, the Toyota Yaris is down two to #6 and the Mercedes A-Class is down four to #9.
