The Most Popular Cars In The UK 2018

When it comes to choosing a car in the UK, there are so many options, sometimes you can be spoilt for choice. Diesel cars were once the preferred choice, but after recent controversy surrounding diesel and petrol fuel efficiency and carbon footprints, diesel sales are down by more than 37% in 2018.

Even though the sale of new cars fell by 15.7% compared with last year, more than 474,000 cars were still sold in March 2018. If you are looking for a new car but are struggling to narrow down your options, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most popular cars in the UK to help you:

Kia Sportage

This well priced small SUV is a popular choice for most families thanks to its great value and practical interior. It is true the driving dynamics can’t match up to some other cars on the market, but it remains a solid choice for a first-time family car.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class

With a focus on comfort rather than performance, the C-Class isn’t as good to drive as the BMW 3 Series, but with the right spec it makes a competent companion.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class

The A-Class suffers slightly with its steering, the ride is overly firm and most other cars on the list give a much more practical performance. The interior and exterior look great, but performance is seriously letting the A-Class model down.

Mini Hatchback

The mini isn’t quite as small as the classic model was. Now, it is a desirable hatchback with plenty of substance to match its style.

Ford Focus

Seen by many as the essential family hatchback, the Ford Focus is fun to drive and comes with a bunch of useful kit. Inside, there is plenty of space and looks classy enough to be driven around town.

Vauxhall Corsa

The current Corsa is spacious, well priced, and comes with plenty of kit as standard. The infotainment system is slightly fiddly and basic handling hold it back from being considered the best.
