Five UK Car Brands That Are At The Top Of The Market

Certain car brands are more popular across the board, and no matter where you go in the world, there are plenty of car manufacturers that provide a wide variety of choices to consumers who are looking for everything from reliable sedans to powerful pick-up trucks and sporty vehicles that have plenty of speed and good looks.

Despite the choices, and the popularity of the many car manufacturers around the UK, there are certain brands that people flock to consistently, thanks to their reputations for building high quality, safe, and reliable rides. There are always a few brands in particular that stand out from the rest of the competition in the UK automotive market, and if you are interested in knowing which ones they are, simply read on to learn more.

1. Ford

The top selling car brand in all of the UK in 2012 was actually Ford, an American car manufacturer that is known for churning out a variety of vehicles to suit every taste, whether you’re a first-time teen driver or someone who works in construction and needs a reliable and heavy duty pick-up truck. But the vehicles that are most popular from this particular car manufacturer in the UK are models like the Focus and Fiesta. These are compact cars that fit easily down tight, busy city streets and are also ranked high in fuel efficiency.

2. Vauxhall

Vauxhall is still an extremely popular brand throughout the UK, thanks to its line of compact vehicles that are popular among all types of drivers. Although it came in second based on sales for 2012, it was very close to beating out Ford in terms of units sold, so everyone will just have to wait and see if it can pull through to first place in 2013 instead.

3. Volkswagen

Volkswagen is a brand that’s synonymous with quality, longevity, and innovation. These vehicles are popular around the world because they have proven themselves to be worth the monetary investment people make into them. Drivers are more than satisfied with their Volkswagens and are often reluctant to leave the brand once they’ve owned a car by this reputable car manufacturer. Volkswagen vehicles are also becoming even more affordable in the UK, making them more accessible to those drivers who wouldn’t have had the opportunity to purchase them in the past.

4. BMW

BMW is an automotive maker that’s known for its luxurious, sporty vehicles. Again, many people dream of someday owning a BMW but cannot afford one right away. Nevertheless, the brand has been selling more vehicles in the UK and has claimed the #4 spot for 2012.

5. Audi

Yet another luxury automaker known for producing great looking vehicles, Audi came in 5th place in 2012 in terms of car sales in the UK. Audi often competes with BMW for drivers’ attention, so it is really no surprise that it came in behind BMW. But if it continues to produce more great cars, it won’t be surprising to see this brand climb higher.
