Top 10 Best-Selling Cars In The United Kingdom – 2013 Year End


2013 BMW 1-Series three door

Compared with 2012’s list of the 10 best-selling cars in the United Kingdom, this list of 2013’s 10 top sellers includes only one new player, the Peugeot 208, and lost only one nameplate, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

The Ford Fiesta continued to rule the roost, and by some margin. The Fiesta outsold its big brother, the Focus, by nearly 35,000 units, a gap that spread wider since 2012.
