Ford Focus overtakes Fiesta and Corsa

The Fiesta traditionally outperforms the Focus sales-wise, and still holds the top sales position for the year-to-date. Ford’s car sales in November were up by 16.9 per cent when compared against November 2011.

That equates to 21,152 vehicles registered, with Ford enjoying 14.2 per cent of the overall car market. The Vauxhall Corsa was the UK’s third most popular car in November, but is still the second best-selling in year-to-date figures according to SMMT figures.

But it’s the Focus’s impressive monthly sales performance that has turned heads. The Focus exceeded expectations with 7,495 units sold, securing a November market share of 5.1 per cent. That’s a rise from 5,834 registrations in October.

Ford’s dominance is likely to continue next month, with the manufacturer hoping its new Fiesta will continue the momentum throughout 2013. Fiesta sales have already exceeded 100,000 units for 2012.

Ford has also recently released the new B-Max, which is noteworthy for its rear-sliding-door technology. The B-Max’s rear-sliding doors allow users a 1.5m opening, providing incredible practicality and more. The B-Max saw 1,109 registrations in November.

Mark Ovenden, Ford of Britain managing director, said: “The new Ford Fiesta is now selling alongside the ingenious Ford B-Max and both cars are available with the award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, which also features in the Ford Focus, the Ford C-Max and the Ford Grand C-Max.”

The Ford Focus is one of the most technologically-advanced cars in its segment. It also has an excellent safety pedigree, and is still the only car to win four Euro NCAP safety awards.

A new Ford Focus is available from £13,995.
