Vauxhall’s Corsa was the UK’s best-selling car in September, as customers purchased new 69-plate cars.
Vauxhall sold 12,921 Corsas last month to achieve the top spot. Through four generations, the Corsa has been a sales sensation, selling 2.1 million cars in the UK since 1993, whilst also proving popular in Europe with over 13.5 million sold. Later this year, the all-new Corsa arrives in a first-ever electric model, along with all-new, high-efficiency petrol and diesel versions.
Outperforming a declining market, Vauxhall’s 2019 Year-to-date market share for cars and light commercial vehicles (LCV) increased to 7.52%. Vauxhall’s popular Mokka X SUV and range-topping Insignia both led their respective segments last month.
In September, Vauxhall was the UK’s second best-selling van manufacturer. Vauxhall’s market share for LCV sales increased to 12.94% versus 9.12% in September 2018. This was Vauxhall’s highest monthly LCV share for three years. For year-to-date, Vauxhall’s LCV market share also increased to 8.5%, versus 7.4% for the same period last year.
This increase has been driven by the all-new Combo Cargo, the current International Van of the Year, and the British-built Vivaro. Practical, comfortable and economical, the Combo Cargo raises the bar in the compact van segment. Launched earlier this year, Vauxhall’s all-new Vivaro medium van is a practical all-rounder with class-leading fuel economy. Both vans are packed with all latest driver assistance and connectivity technology.
