Eighth place for Polo in UK best-selling car registrations chart

2016 Volkswagen Polo GTI (UK)

Continuing its sales success, the Volkswagen Polo has once again been named as one of the top 10 best-selling cars in the UK. According to the latest figures released by the Society of Motor Manufactures and Traders (SMMT) for June 2016, the Polo was the eighth most popular car in the UK, with 4930 cars finding new homes. For the year-to-date, the Polo is at number seven, with 28,000 examples registered.

A popular choice
Although it is one place below its May 2016 position, it shows that despite the basic shape of the current fifth-generation Polo being unveiled in 2009, seven years on it is still proving a popular choice. This is borne out by the evergreen VW being named as the 2016 Supermini of the Year in the recent Auto Express Awards.

The Polo’s larger brother the Golf took fourth place in both the June and year-to-date figures, while the seemingly immovable Ford Fiesta was once again at the top of the charts with 11,357 cars registered last month and a staggering 68,833 units for the year-to-date. As the small Ford celebrates its 40th birthday in 2016, it remains the premier and most popular choice for the UK as a whole.

Best half-year performance
Other SMMT figures point to a 3.2 per cent rise in demand for new cars between January and June 2016, with 1,420,636 registrations – the best half-year performance ever recorded. Overall demand in June fell, though, with a small 0.8 per cent dip. The UK’s top 10 best-selling passenger cars during June 2016 and the year so far (sales figure and position in brackets) are as follows:

1 Ford Fiesta: 11,357 (68,833, 1st)
2 Vauxhall Corsa: 8837 (42,356, 2nd)
3 Ford Focus: 6833 (37,715, 3rd)
4 Volkswagen Golf: 6775 (37,577, 4th)
5 Mini: 6284 (24,293, 8th)
6 Nissan Qashqai: 5832 (33,656, 5th)
7 Vauxhall Astra: 5628 (28,406, 6th)
8 Volkswagen Polo: 4930 (28,000, 7th)
9 Vauxhall Mokka: 4356 (22,462, 9th)
9 Mercedes-Benz C Class: 4112 (22,069, 10th)

Rise in popularity
In a repeat of April, the Golf took the second place spot behind the Ford Fiesta, which has seen registrations top a staggering 52,476 units for the year-to-date.

No change: Polo is the UK’s sixth best-selling car during April 2016

2014 Volkswagen Polo (UK)

As last month, the Volkswagen Polo is once again the sixth best-selling car in the UK according to the latest figures released by the Society of Motor Manufactures and Traders (SMMT). A total of 4065 new Polos were registered in April 2016, while 19,225 examples of the small Volkswagen have been sold so far this year.

The Polo’s larger Golf sibling was second in the overall tally for April, behind the Ford Fiesta, seemingly un-knockable from its top spot. The Vauxhall Corsa meanwhile sits one place behind the Polo in seventh. Last month’s new car registration figures saw a 2.0 per cent rise to 189,505 cars – the largest April total since 2003, when 194,312 new vehicles found homes.

The latest figures show that Volkswagen was the second biggest brand in the UK during April, with registrations totalling 16,877, and a market share of 8.91 per cent. Both the private and fleet markets reported strong sales. ‘The good results over recent months reflect the high level of confidence within our UK retailer network,’ said Alex Smith, Director of Volkswagen UK.

The UK’s top 10 best-selling passenger cars during April 2016 and the year so far (sales figure and position in brackets) are as follows:

1 Ford Fiesta: 7913 (44,240, 1st)
2 Volkswagen Golf: 5645 (25,073, 4th)
