Best selling cars
Looking down this list, it's easy to understand why these cars are the UK's best sellers. They each offer a range of abilities, meaning they can handle almost anything that's asked of them. They're also cheap to run and if you shop around, it shouldn't be hard to get a great deal on the one you're after.
According to figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), more new cars were registered for UK roads in 2015 than in any year for a decade. That has much to do with the number of attractive finance deals available at the moment - 75% of buyers purchase their car on finance.
The SMMT found that superminis such as the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo continue to grow in popularity. But the organisation is also seeing more buyers opt for British-built cars like the Vauxhall Astra.
More buyers than ever are opting for alternatively fuelled, low-emission cars, thanks to low fuel and road tax bills and the promise of a £5,000 grant for electric cars. Around 5,000 of this kind of vehicle were registered this April – an increase of more than 45% over May 2014.
Here, we run down the best-selling cars every month, which in this case is August 2015.
