2011 U.K Auto Sales Figures – Best Selling Models (All Segments)

After winning every one of 2011’s monthly races except January and February, which, as it happens, were won by the year end’s second and fourth-place cars, the Ford Fiesta ended 2011 as the best-selling car in the United Kingdom. That’s not surprising.

What is slightly surprising is the Fiesta’s margin of victory. In 2010, the Fiesta beat the Vauxhall Astra by 22,367 sales. The Fiesta’s victory over this year’s second-place loser was “just” 14,280 units. That second-place car was the Fiesta’s big brother, Ford’s Focus. Sales of the Focus increased at a 5.2% clip in 2011, Fiesta sales slid 6.7%.
