Car Sales UK By Model: 2012

In December the Astra (5,112) did enough to edge the Golf (2,556) out of 4th, giving the US brands all top four spots. BMW did well to get two on the list, with the 1 Series (3,196) having a very good month in coming 5th. What can you say about the Qashqai? Clearly Nissan got the design spot on as it sells well all over Europe and just keeps getting stronger.
I only have the top 10 presently, but will update when more come to hand. Nothing too shocking here, with the usual suspects at the top. 2011 is on the left and 2012 the right. Mauve is US makes, yellow German, brown Japanese and green UK, although there is a case for that to be yellow instead.
