UK 1996: Ford Fiesta edges Ford Escort out

Ford Fiesta

Helped by a light facelift this year, the Ford Fiesta takes the lead of the English market just above the Ford Escort. I only have the name of this year’s best seller and figures for the first two months of the year so if you have more detail please make sure to get in touch.

Vauxhall Vectra

Over the first two months of 1996, the Ford Fiesta edges the Escort out at 7.1% share vs. 6.7%. The Ford Mondeo is 3rd at 6.2%. Launched late last year, the Vauxhall Vectra already jumps to 4th place in February at 4.8%, the best selling Vauxhall model that month. The Rover 400 (#8) and Fiat Punto (#9) also make their way into the Top 10.
