Ford Is 2020's Best-Selling New Car Brand
Ford secures three spots on the best-selling cars of 2020 list with the Ford Fiesta being named number 1 best-seller of the year.
Jan 15, 2021
According to the latest figures issued by the SMMT (Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders), the Ford Fiesta has topped the list of the UK's best-selling new cars once again in 2020.
As new car registrations go, the Ford Fiesta has always been a favourite and is often dubbed the 'nation's favourite supermini'. But it's not just the Fiesta that appeared in the top 10 best-selling cars of 2020 for the Blue Oval - the Ford Focus climbed in at number 4 and the New Ford Puma was the 9th best-selling new car in the UK.
So what makes these three models so popular amongst new car buyers?
Ford Fiesta - 49,174 units sold
The Ford Fiesta comes out on top again. Surprised? You shouldn't be - this has been the case every year since 2009 (that's 11 years as the UK's best-selling car). The supermini has dominated the streets for more than a decade and figures from the SMMT show that it's not planning on slowing down just yet.
The Fiesta is a highly popular choice, catering perfectly for first-time buyers as well as long-time drivers. The timeless design keeps it on-trend whatever age, gender or family category you fit into. If you want a small, reliable, cost-effective car, the Fiesta is usually a great place to start.
The Ford Fiesta is now on sale at Sandicliffe from £15,110.

Ford Focus - 39,372 units sold
Three places down the list, the Fiesta is joined by its big brother, the Ford Focus. Another staple in the Ford range, the Focus offers a more spacious interior making it the perfect family hatchback. With 'engaging driveline and improved ergonomics' as well as the extra room, we're not surprised to see the Ford Focus back on the list for the best-selling cars of 2020.
Last year, the Focus saw demand reach highs of 39,372 units, with June being the month it eclipsed its long-time rival in sales - the VW Golf.
The Ford Focus is now on sale at Sandicliffe from £21,237.

Ford Puma - 26,294 units sold
Having only been on the market for less than a year, the New Ford Puma has reserved a comfy spot as the 9th best-selling new car in the UK of 2020. It could be down to its bold new sporty exterior or the fact that it offers class-leading boot space up to 456-litres thanks to an intelligent MegaBox (80-litres hidden underneath the boot floor).
The Ford Puma comes as Ford's latest crossover SUV offering a whole suite of new technology and innovation and has recently welcomed a Vignale addition as well as a range-topping performance version a.k.a the Puma ST. If that wasn't enough to pique your interests, maybe the attractive starting price for a car of this calibre will.
The Ford Puma is now on sale at Sandicliffe from £20,038.
