Britain’s Top 5 Best-selling Cars of 2018
At BMS Selsey (one of our sales forecourts), we are always trying to ensure that we have the most desirable vehicles in stock and judging by the latest figures released we are not doing too bad as we have all five in stock!
1. Ford Fiesta
A personal favourite of ours is the race red ford fiesta zetec s we have got in at the moment, with its bright colour body and striking black trim it is a real stand out car.
We believe it does not matter if you’re a 17 year old first time driver or a 50 year old with 30 years no claims this is the car for you. Extremely reliable, affordable to run and maintain with a lot of toys for the price tag, I suppose that’s why it is Britain’s favourite car.
2. Volkswagen Golf
The Golf is another classic name in motoring that attracts legions of diehard fans who keep it riding high in the charts.
Good looking and great on fuel, make no mistake, the Volkswagen Golf is one of the best cars of its type. It is practical enough for a small family with a quality feel and a desirable image and, on top of that, it is comfortable and enjoyable to drive.
3. Nissan Qashqai
Not only is the new Nissan Qashqai built in Sunderland but, it was also designed in London and largely engineered at Cranfield in Bedfordshire.
Very popular with the locals as, we have managed to sell 4 of them in the last 6 weeks.
4. Ford Focus
Probably the most common car on the road, the Focus is as common a sight on the average journey as traffic lights or roundabouts. The Ford Focus is consistently among the best-selling models in the country.
Chances are you know at least one person who has one. Ford has a knack for producing sweet-handling cars and, it has done the business again with the Focus. Even on standard models, strong grip and solid body control make it feel wonderfully agile in bends while, the super-accurate steering weighs up progressively the faster you go.
This story begins with the re-launch of a car that in 1959 with its four-cylinder engine, front-wheel drive and design packaging that enabled maximum interior space within a minimum exterior footprint, revolutionized the industry.
Like the original classic Austin Mini, the re-born 2002-2006 model, was also built in the U.K but, this time by a unit of Germany’s BMW. BMW applied their considerable engineering know-how and experience crafting class-leading rear-drive performance cars to the Mini concept. Though the 2002-2006 Mini was two feet longer, nearly a foot wider and more than a half-ton heavier than that classic 1959 iteration, it was much smaller than just about any other contemporary small car. The mini was imbued with agile handling and could carry four grinning passengers.
