The 10 most popular cars in the UK right now

After years as the UK's best-selling car, the Fiesta was finally displaced in July. But that was mainly due to it being near the end of its life, so it's no surprise to see it back in the number one spot now that there's an all-new Fiesta. Like its popular predecessor, this new model is great fun to drive and available with Ecoboost petrol engines that are punchy, quiet and frugal. However, it feels more modern inside and has a much better infotainment system.

October sales 7256
