Thanks to our partnership with  we can share with you the Top 10 best-sellers for all UK nations in October. Keep in mind this is a zoom in by nation, all sales figures are already included in the October 2018 UK update. Uncharacteristically, only England (-3.8%) is in negative this month at 131.339 registrations, with Northern Ireland (+8.4%) at 3.810, Wales (+6.1%) at 5.721 and Scotland (+1%) at 12.429 all posting sturdy results. The weight of England in the UK total (86%) means the month is in negative overall. Year-to-date, all UK nations decline this time with Northern Ireland (-3.7%) at 47.582 resisting best ahead of Wales (-3.7%) at 69.874, England (-7.2%) at 1.777.913 and Scotland (-9.7%) at 164.199.

The Peugeot 2008 scores its very first Top 10 in any UK nation: directly #5 in Wales.

As it has been the case for the past two months, the Ford Fiesta tops 3 out of 4 nations: this time it’s England, Scotland and Wales, but ranks at a paltry 8th place in Northern Ireland. The hero of the month is without contest the VW Tiguan: justifying its all-time record 4th place overall in the UK. The Tiguan is the outright best-seller in Northern Ireland, a nation where it first cracked the Top 10 in February 2017 and its previous high was #8 last March. It also ranks #3 in both Scotland and Wales, nations where it had never broken into the Top 10 before, and lastly 6th in England, beating its previous best of #8 hit just last July.

The MG ZS hits an all-time high 7th place in Wales, its second ever appearance in a UK nation Top 10.

The Toyota Aygo shoots up to a spectacular 2nd place in Scotland, the Ford Kuga is #2 in Wales (now also #2 YTD), #3 in Northern Ireland (now #2 YTD there) and #10 in England, with the VW Golf (#2 in England), Vauxhall Corsa (#2 in Northern Ireland) and Mercedes A-Class (#3 in England) snapping the remaining podium spots. Other great performers include the Ford Ecosport #4 in Wales (now #7 YTD there), the Peugeot 2008 scoring its first ever Top 10 in Wales (and any UK nation for that matter) at #5, the MG ZS up to a record-breaking #7 in Wales, its 2nd Top 10 appearance there and in any UK nation after ranking #10 last July, the Citroen C3 #7 in Northern Ireland and the VW T-Roc #8 in Scotland where VW places 4 nameplates in the October Top 9 (Golf, Tiguan, T-Roc and Polo).

Wales frankly outpace the already galloping overall market at +42.4% to 3.193 registrations with England slightly above at +23.8% to 79.712 and Scotland slightly below at +21.7% but Northern Ireland clearly underperforming at +1.5% to 3.701. Year-to-date, all UK nations remain in negative (in a UK market down 4.1%) with Wales once again performing best at -1.2% to 52.211 sales, Northern Ireland at -3% to 38.407, England at -4% to 1.356.729 and Scotland underperforming at -6.9% to 120.609.

The Seat Leon, Honda Jazz and Suzuki Swift all break their UK ranking records this month but for once their performance doesn’t have everything to do with English fleet sales: the Honda Jazz ranks #5 in Scotland and the Suzuki Swift is #8 in Scotland and #5 in Wales where Suzuki is the most impressive, placing the Celerio at #4 and the Vitara at #6. The Toyota C-HR posts its very first Top 10 finish in any UK nation at #8 in Northern Ireland, as for the Peugeot 3008 up to #10 in Northern Ireland it is the second time it appears in a UK nation Top 10 after ranking #9 in Wales last April.

Thanks to our partnership with  we can share with you the Top 10 best-sellers for all UK nations in July. Keep in mind this is a zoom in by nation, all sales figures are already included in the July 2018 UK update. Wales (+9.6%) at 5.617 sales and Scotland (+8.2%) at 11.643 units are the best performers this month with England (+0.5%) only edging up at 142.141 units and Northern Ireland (-2.5%) the only UK nation in negative at 3.714 sales. Year-to-date, all nations are in negative, with once again Wales (-3.1%) resisting best at 49.018 followed by Northern Ireland (-3.4%) at 34.706, England (-5.3%) at 1.277.017 and Scotland (-8.2%) the weakest performer at 113.516.

…as does the VW T-Roc at #9 in Scotland.

Like in June, the Ford Fiesta is #1 in 3 nations this month: in England and Wales but replacing its Northern Irish victory in June by a throne in Scotland. Instead, the Nissan Qashqai manages to snap its first monthly victory in Northern Ireland in four years and the third in 5 after October 2013 and July 2014. The Qashqai is also #3 in Scotland while four additional nameplates manage a podium ranking this month: the VW Polo #2 in Scotland and Wales, the Ford Kuga #2 in Northern Ireland and #3 in Wales, the VW Golf #2 in England and the Vauxhall Corsa #3 in England.

The Nissan Qashqai scores its first monthly win in 4 years in Northern Ireland.

The big event in the UK nation sales charts in July is the very first Top 10 of two successful nameplates but the most surprising is without a doubt the MG ZS. Now under Chinese ownership (SAIC), MG has been attempting a return to UK shores and the China-made ZS crossover looks like it’s giving it its best shot so far. The ZS brilliantly ranks #10 in Wales in July with 1.7% market share. Note no MG nameplate has even managed to end the year in the annual UK Top 10, with the MGB ranking at an estimated #19 in 1973 with a record 13.755 sales. The VW T-Roc, breaking into the Scottish Top 10 at #9, was more expected given its wide success across Europe. Other great July performers include the Suzuki Vitara up to #4 in Wales, the Audi A1 up to #5 in Scotland, Toyota Yaris up to #5 in Northern Ireland, Kia Picanto up to #6 in Wales and Suzuki Swift up to #10 in Wales.

Up from just two wins in May, the Ford Fiesta is the best-seller in 3 nations in June: England, Northern Ireland and Wales but must abdicates the throne once again in Scotland to the Vauxhall Corsa whose only other podium finish is a 2nd place in Wales. Other podium finishers in June are the VW Polo #2 in Scotland and #3 in Northern Ireland, the VW Golf #2 in England, the Hyundai Tucson #2 in Northern Ireland, the Mini #3 in England (vs. #4 in the UK overall) and the Ford Focus only able to snap a third place in Wales whereas it topped two nations last month.
