UK Full Year 2018: Now with Top 250 models ranking

The Vauxhall Grandland X is an instant blockbuster in the UK.

Traditionally very secretive, we now have the chance to study UK 2018 figures in a lot more detail with a Top 250 models instead of the usual Top 10. Just outside the familiar ten, the Vauxhall Mokka (-14.1%) is up 3 spots to #12, the VW Tiguan (+9.5%) up a splendid 7 to #13, the Vauxhall Astra (-36.1%) imploding down 8 to #14 and the Fiat 500 (-0.3%) up 4 to #15. There are no double-digit gainers in the Top 20, but plenty just below: the Ford Ecosport (+62.2%), Mercedes GLC (+46.8%), Toyota C-HR (+28.9%), Peugeot 3008 (+12.7%), Honda Jazz (+12.2%) and Seat Leon (+11.6%) all fitting within the Top 40 best-sellers.

Land Rover Discovery Sport

Below the Mini (-5.8%) up one spot to #7, the most popular true blue British nameplates are the Land Rover Discovery Sport (-18.7%) overtaking the Range Rover Evoque (-30%), the Mini Countryman (+23.7%), Range Rover Sport (+11.8%), Range Rover Velar (+173.8%), Jaguar F-Pace (-16%), E-Pace (+5148%), Land Rover Discovery (-24.6%) and Mini Clubman (-15.5%). Notice also the Range Rover up 12.1%, the MG ZS up 1337.4% and the Jaguar i-Pace landing at #222.

To showcase more models, we’ve included among “new launches” – technically nameplates launched in 2018, the cars that launched in late 2017 and sold less than 100 units that year. At this little game, the Vauxhall Grandland X wins at #44, edging past the VW T-Roc at #45, which are alongside the Skoda Karoq (#53) the only new nameplates making it into the 2018 UK Top 100. Below, we find the Volvo XC40 (#109), BMW X2 (#129), Jeep Compass (#159) and DS 7 (#214).
