29-01-2024

The Ford Puma was the UK's best-selling car in 2023, with 49,591 units sold. This is the first time the Puma has topped the charts, having been launched in 2019. The Nissan Qashqai was in second place, with 43,321 units sold, followed by the Vauxhall Corsa, with 40,816 units sold.

The strong performance of SUVs in 2023 is reflected in the sales figures for the Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson and Nissan Juke. These models all sit comfortably in the top 10, with the Sportage selling 36,135 units, the Tucson selling 34,469 units, and the Juke selling 31,745 units.

The Tesla Model Y is the only electric car in the top 10, with 35,899 units sold. This is a remarkable achievement for a relatively new model, and it highlights the growing popularity of electric cars in the UK.

The UK car market grew by 1.1% in 2023, with 1.89 million new cars registered. This is the first time the market has grown since 2016. The growth was driven by a number of factors, including the launch of new models, such as the Ford Puma and Kia Sportage, and the increasing popularity of electric cars.

And of course, the eternal tug-of-war between practicality and driving thrills will keep car designers and engineers on their toes.

2024 promises to be another year of fascinating twists and turns on the automotive highway. Who will dethrone the Puma? Will electric cars dominate the top tier? Only time will tell, but one thing's for sure: the ride promises to be exciting.
