UK February 2011: VW Golf tops the ranking!
The UK market is down for the 8th consecutive month in February, however recording the smallest decline over the period at -8% with 63,424 registrations. February has a traditionally low volume as buyers await the March plate change, resulting in a very volatile models ranking:
The VW Golf takes the lead of the UK market for the first time in at least a decade (I need to check my archives here – if you have more details please shout!) with a shiny 4.3% share, and the Ford Focus is #1 YTD at 10,065 sales and 5.2%.
Vauxhall places no less than 5 models in the Top 10, with the Corsa 2nd (4.1%), Astra 5th (3.2%), Insignia 6th (2.9%), Zafira 7th (2.7%) and the new Meriva in 10th (2.2%).
