Tesla (+1112.5%), Land Rover (+235.3%), Mitsubishi (+78.6%), Jaguar (+73.9%), Lexus (+64%) and Mazda (+22.1%) stand out further down. The models podium swims upstream with the Nissan Qashqai (+28.9%), Skoda Octavia (+12%) and Ford Focus (+23.9%) all defying the negative market with double-digit gains. The Toyota Corolla (+869.4%) replaces the Auris in the Top 5 like last month, with the Volvo XC40 (+428%), V60 (+116.2%), Kia Niro (+98%), Mercedes A-Class (+62.7%), Skoda Karoq (+51.7%), VW Tiguan (+51.6%) and Toyota RAV4 (+38.5%) also showing strong resolve.
