Any idea what the UK's most popular cars on the road are at the moment?

New data by the SMMT reveals all… Are you driving one of the top 10 cars?

 
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) each year look at records of every vehicle currently in use on roads in the UK to discover what the most popular makes and models of car are at the moment.
Their annual research is known as the Motorparc analysis and is one of the largest of its kind in the world.
According to the data, the range of cars on our roads has increased massively over the past 10 years alone, with a 25% rise in the model line-up since 2007, plus there’s now a mind-boggling 65,000 individual car specifications to choose from.
Despite the fact that there’s more choice than ever these days, it seems some models continue to remain in the hearts of many motorists here in the UK.
