Time 11:03 am, November 6, 2013

73349-a-forFORD’s Fiesta has extended its lead yet again in the new car market, after topping the charts in October’s best-seller list.

According to SMMT, the top 10 best-seller list for October was once again dominated by Ford, Vauxhall and Volkswagen – all of which recorded very similar figures year-to-date.

Following record figures in September, Ford’s Fiesta remained on top, shifting 8,574 units in October, a significant proportion ahead of Vauxhall’s Corsa, which sold 5,155 units last month.

As usual, the Ford Focus followed close behind in third place, selling 5,069 units in October and the Volkswagen Golf came in fourth with 4,562 sales.

In fifth position was Vauxhall’s Astra, selling 4,420 units last month. Meanwhile, Nissan took sixth and seventh place with the Qashqai recording 3,579 units, while the Juke achieved 8,309.

Vauxhall’s Insignia popped into eighth position selling 2,710 units and rounding up the top 10 was Fiat’s 500 in ninth with 2,672 units and the BMW 3 Series holding onto the final spot with 2,582.

However, when looking at the year-to-date figures, the top-seller list is quite different.

The Fiesta continues to top the chart with 104,621 units, followed by its larger sibling – the Focus – in the number two spot with 76,493 units. Ford sits comfortably ahead of the Vauxhall Corsa in third at 72,493 units.

The Astra follows in fourth with 57,758 units, while Volkswagen’s Golf remains in fifth position with 56,357.

The Nissan Qashqai is still holding off BMW with 44,649 units and keeping the 3 Series in seventh with 37,066, while the 1 Series is close behind in eighth with 36,529.

Rounding up the top 10 is Volkswagen’s Polo in ninth with 36,362 units and the Peugeot 208 squeezed into tenth with 34,253 units.
