The VW Golf ranks #2 in England and #3 in Scotland and the Ford Kuga ranks #3 in Northern Ireland and in Wales, no other nameplate reached the podium this month. The Seat Leon, Honda Jazz and Suzuki Swift all break their UK ranking records this month but for once their performance doesn’t have everything to do with English fleet sales: the Honda Jazz ranks #5 in Scotland and the Suzuki Swift is #8 in Scotland and #5 in Wales where Suzuki is the most impressive, placing the Celerio at #4 and the Vitara at #6. The Toyota C-HR posts its very first Top 10 finish in any UK nation at #8 in Northern Ireland, as for the Peugeot 3008 up to #10 in Northern Ireland it is the second time it appears in a UK nation Top 10 after ranking #9 in Wales last April.
