The ten best-selling cars in the United Kingdom in July 2012 were, for the most part, the same cars which end every month as the UK’s best-selling cars. The exceptions? Audi’s A3 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
Through the first seven months of 2012, the best-selling premium brand car in the United Kingdom is still the BMW 3-Series, 4735 sales ahead of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, July’s seventh-ranked car. The 3-Series didn’t crack the top ten in July.
Overall, the best-selling car in the UK was the Ford Fiesta. As Fiesta sales shot up 13% (in a market which rose 9%), Focus sales dropped 24%. That was the second worst decline among cars in the top 10. Year-to-date, the Fiesta is 14,147 sales ahead of its closest rival, the similarly-sized and similarly-priced Vauxhall Corsa. Corsa sales are up 21% this year.
