Well, Ford might be like the furniture to us all now, but it seems the Blue Oval is still a force to be reckoned with in the car finance and sales market. New figures showing the best selling cars in May have been released and they make good reading for Ford. The SMMT said that the Fiesta is the best-selling motor during May – a record it has held for three months.

A staggering 8,135 Fiestas were sold during May, and the Focus isn’t too far behind in second place with a respectable 6,492 units.

Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive, said: "New car registrations for May were down just 1.7 per cent on 2010 levels, with strong performances in the fleet and business sectors.

"Consumers remain cautious, but with significantly improved fuel economy, service plans and more affordable finance, there is great value on offer across the market."
