Best-selling cars 2022: the UK’s top 10 most popular models
Here is a look at the best-selling cars in the UK in 2022:
Vauxhall Corsa – 29,342
The Vauxhall Corsa is still holding its own despite the fact that there are several months left before it is named the best-selling car in the UK for 2022. However, the Nissan Qashqai has recently produced some impressive numbers, which may make it a serious threat as the year comes to a close.
Nissan Qashqai – 29,334
The Qashqai enjoyed a notably prosperous September, which enabled the mid-size SUV to surpass Ford Puma and move up from the second place. The innovative Qashqai e-Power hybrid’s introduction will likely help to accelerate these already strong stats.
Ford Puma – 27,680
The Ford Fiesta spent what appeared to be an eternity at the highest spot on the list of the best-selling cars in the United Kingdom, but it hasn’t placed in the top 10 since 2020. Rather, it’s been Puma’s responsibility to drive sales for the Blue Oval.
Kia Sportage – 24,301
The third most popular SUV in Britain in 2021 was the Kia Sportage, which came in ninth overall. This year had a strong beginning, but a dismal February caused it to end up losing 1st place. The figures clearly indicate that the most recent Sportage, which was introduced earlier in the year, is persisting in being popular with customers.
MINI – 23,161
Taking third place in the overall sales charts in 2021, the MINI had an incredibly successful year. Sales numbers have increased thanks to the all-electric model, and we think it’s a stylish, well-made supermini that deserves to stay on this list.
Hyundai Tucson – 22,688
In 2022, Tucson’s newfound upmarket appeal will tempt a whole new audience to buy it, and it will still be a serious threat to competitors like the Ford Kuga.
Ford Kuga – 20,856
This third-generation Kuga, in our opinion, is the best one yet. It is a fantastic vehicle to drive and is available with a variety of effective gasoline and hybrid engines. The Kuga fulfils all requirements for a reasonably priced, useful family vehicle.
Tesla Model Y – 20,654
The most recent Tesla model, the Model Y, combines the technology and appeal of the Model 3 in a more usable SUV body. Although it’s not the first SUV for the brand, this one is significantly less expensive and has a more understated appearance than the Model X. The fact that so many UK buyers are snatching them up proves that this combo is a winner.
Kia Niro – 20,096
The Kia Niro is still a very popular model for Korean manufacturers. A variety of drivetrain options, including a plug-in hybrid, a hybrid, and a fully electric model, are now available for the new Niro. These sales figures could also stay very strong if the new vehicle enjoys popularity comparable to that of the first-generation Niro over the course of its lifetime.
Volkswagen Golf – 19,344
Many United Kingdom buyers still favour the consistently well-liked Golf as their vehicle of choice. The Golf, now in its eighth generation, has undergone a number of changes, such as exterior styling and an abundance of modern technology. It makes sense that the outcome would be a well-rounded, high-end hatchback, making it one of this year’s top-selling cars so far.
