Fiesta reigns supreme in car finance sales

Ford’s Fiesta may be lacking a hot-version, but that hasn’t stopped the car finance drivers of the UK from buying them.

Ford’s Fiesta may be lacking a hot-version, but that hasn’t stopped the car finance drivers of the UK from buying them. The latest figures are in and it shows that the Fiesta is still the top dog when it comes to sales. Ford managed to shift 3,213 units during August as the car industry finally gets back on its feet.

Thankfully, there’s even more good news! The car industry saw a hike in popularity as new car registrations grew for the first time in over a year. The new car market grew by 7.3% during August, which shows that people are willing to spend their hair earned.

"August represents a relatively small share of the new car market and the September new 61-plate registrations will be far more important for vehicle manufacturers and franchised dealers," said the SMMT chief executive Paul Everitt.

"The September new car market is always important for the UK motor industry, accounting for around 17 per cent of the full year's registrations. Consumers are nervous about the future, but with the industry offering unprecedented improvements in fuel economy, competitive finance offers and a wide variety of new models, buyers will find there is something to suit every taste and pocket."
