The little Ford Fiesta continues to outsell its rivals, as new figures are released by the SMMT. Sales in October rose 2.6 per cent compared to 2010, and the Fiesta managed to knock up 7,308 sales. Ford was closely followed by the Vauxhall Corsa, which impressed with 6,300 units sold.

"October's new car sales rise is a positive result despite the uncertain economic climate," said Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive. "Vehicle manufacturers and their dealer networks are working hard to offer consumers value for money through improved fuel efficiency, low running costs and innovative finance.

"We expect market conditions to remain challenging and hope the Chancellor's Autumn Statement later this month will help to boost economic growth and consumer confidence."
