Revealed: UK’s Top 10 best-selling new cars

Ford Puma

New car registrations rose 14.0% to 84,886 during February – the best performance for the month since 2004.

February is traditionally volatile as the lowest volume month of the year, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), with buyers often electing to wait until March and the new number plate.

The good news is that it was the 19th month of consecutive growth in the UK. However, fleets and businesses were responsible for the entirety of February’s increase, with registrations up 25.2% and 15.5% respectively.

Private uptake continued to struggle, with a -2.6% decline to record a 33.7% market share.
