Vauxhall Corsa fans aid strong sales

Used Vauxhall Corsa and used Vauxhall Astra fans have helped the manufacturer to become the UK’s best selling brand during February.

For the second time in three months, Vauxhall is the leading brand for new car registrations across the UK, according to the latest figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

The manufacturer recorded a total of 9,372 vehicle sales during the month, with the Corsa, Astra, Insignia and Zafira all making the list for the top ten best-selling models.

Of these, the Vauxhall Corsa proved to be the most sought-after thanks to the sale of 2,856 vehicles.

Andy Gilson, Vauxhall’s marketing director, said: "This is proof, if proof were needed, that the Vauxhall brand is as strong as ever in the British car market."

He added that the manufacturer was also optimistic that sales would remain strong during March now that the latest ’09’ registration plate is available.

Top Gear concluded in the past that the Corsa "is one of the best superminis around, and a looker with it".
