Most popular cars in Scotland in 2015Back

Scottish flagTo celebrate St Andrew’s Day, Trusted Dealers has put together a list of some of the most popular cars in Scotland from results recorded by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) throughout 2015 to date. Take a look below at Scotland’s favourite cars:

Vauxhall Corsa

Despite the Ford Fiesta coming top in the UK as the most popular car on the road, in Scotland, it is topped by the Vauxhall Corsa, with higher sales recorded most of the months this year. The latest model Corsa hit the roads early this year and has proved to be a huge success. Available with a huge range of engines and specifications, you can personalise it to the max, and it’s even smarter inside where you’ll be able to fit four people in quite comfortably. The Corsa is fun to drive and even the cheapest Sting version comes with alloy wheels, Bluetooth and an iPod connection socket. Furthermore, the basic model is cheaper than the Corsa’s main rival, the Ford Fiesta and it looks just as classy too.

Peugeot 208

The Peugeot 208 continues to feature in Scotland’s top ten most popular cars, despite a drop in popularity in England where buyers tend to favour the Ford Fiesta or the more modern city cars now available such as the frugal VW Up! or the Skoda Citigo. Peugeot cars are renowned for their good looks both inside and out, and the Peugeot 208 is no exception, offering chic styling and a high-quality cabin. Furthermore, most versions are cheap to buy and very cheap to run, however, the ride and handling are not as good as other superminis in its class.

Fiat500Fiat 500

The Fiat 500 has proved popular throughout 2015 in Scotland. Re-introduced back in 2007 as a cheaper alternative to the more expensive BMW Mini One, the Fiat 500 has risen in popularity during the past 8 years thanks to its small, boxy dimensions, quirky interior and excellent fuel economy. The Fiat 500 makes the perfect city runabout offering a range of frugal, flexible engines whilst being one of the safest superminis on the road. It’s cute looks and low price make it a hard car to resist.

Vauxhall Mokka

The Vauxhall Mokka is another car in the Vauxhall family that’s consistently proved popular with the Scots in 2015. Making its debut in 2012, the Mokka is one of the latest SUVs created by Vauxhall which has stormed the market and proved highly popular as a cheaper and effective alternative to other rival SUVs such as the Nissan Qashqai and the Mazda CX-5. The Mokka looks good and is fairly practical, offering plenty of room in cabin and a reasonably sized boot. It isn’t as good to drive as other rivals, but you should be able to pick one up at a good discount.

DaciaSanderoDacia Sandero

The Dacia Sandero is one of the cheapest cars on the market to purchase with prices for a new model starting at £5995, so it is hardly surprisingly it is continuing to prove popular not just with Scottish buyers, but with buyers across the UK looking for a cheap car that does what it says on the tin. The Sandero offers low running costs as well as a practical, roomy cabin and a selection of sound engines to choose from. It’s not the most high-tech of city cars but what you see is what you get – a likeable car with plenty of space and practicality. The only catch is that you’ll have to pay extra on top of the standard model for simple equipment such as a CD player and air conditioning.
