Ford Fiesta – 52,476 registered

If you guessed this would be at number one then you win nothing. The Ford Fiesta is almost always the best-selling car in the UK by a significant margin. In fact, it outsold the next most popular model by just shy of 19,000 units, making it by far and away the most popular car in the UK.

Its appeal is easy to understand, since it blends great driving dynamics with low running costs, affordable finance deals and surprising practicality. There is a broad range of engines and trim levels too, ranging from sensible diesels to the high-performance ST model, which is one of the best hot hatches on sale.
