UK 1992: Ford Escort reclaims top spot

Ford Escort

After two years of Ford Fiesta domination, the Ford Escort is back on top of the UK ranking with 121,086 sales and 7.6%, up 15% and one percentage point year-on-year. This may have something to do with the facelift the 5th generation received in September.

The Vauxhall Cavalier is out of luck: now that it passed the Ford Fiesta, it is below the Escort and Vauxhall is therefore not able to interrupt the 20 year-long reign of Ford models. The Cavalier sells 108,818 units at 6.8% share, just above the Ford Fiesta at 106,594 units and 6.7%.

Rover 100

In 4th place, the Vauxhall Astra is boosted by the new generation launched last year, up 2 spots and 39% at 86,098 sales. The Rover 200 is up 13% but down one spot at #6, while the Rover 100 is stable at #7 and 3.6%. The 5 year-old Peugeot 405 becomes the best selling foreign model in the UK at #8 and 3% share, up 17%.
