The most popular car sold within the UK in May 2019
The most popular car sold within the UK in May 2019 was… the Ford Fiesta! With sales reaching an incredible 6710 for the month, the Ford Fiesta beat rivals such as the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus.
What makes Ford Fiestas so popular? Is it the popular car of choice amongst new drivers? Is it the performance options, such as the ST version, or the ST-Line X, ST-2, ST-3 and so on.
Let’s discuss a few of the vehicles key features which we think may make it appealing the public.
The Ford Fiesta
The Ford Fiesta comes in a variety of models. Some include the Fiesta: Zetec, ST-Line, ST, ST-2, ST-3, Titanium, Vignale and more…
Depending on what you’re looking for in a car will depend on what model you choose. For example, if you’re a new driver and looking for your first car, the Zetec is worth researching. If you’re a more experienced driver, looking to drive something with a pretty impressive level of power, you may want to consider the ST. This is the type of car most commonly purchased to modify. Whether you buy the ST-Line for its cosmetic looks, or the ST for the power and driving experience, the ST model should serve you well. Or, maybe you’re not looking for either of the above, maybe you’re looking for a little luxury. If so, check out the Titanium and Vignale models.
More key selling points of the Fiesta include the technology and safety which comes with new models.
Upgraded technology on newer models includes: Active Park Assist, Lane Keeping Aid, Traffic Sign Recognition and more.
To help keep you and your vehicle safe out on the roads Ford has also incorporated ‘Pre-collision Assist’ and ‘Door Edge Protectors’ into their new technology. Safety first, as they say!
