By Motor Match •

There were some significant changes when it came to the popularity of certain cars. There was a lot of moving and shaking, that’s for sure, so let’s take a look at what placed where.

Most popular cars in November 2020

It’ll come as little surprise that new car registrations were down once again in November. Though by no means as harsh as the figures seen after the first national lockdown in the spring, the numbers painted yet another gloomy picture for the new car market. 

However, there were some significant changes when it came to the popularity of certain cars. There was a lot of moving and shaking, that’s for sure, so let’s take a look at what placed where. 


vauxhall corsa

Vauxhall Corsa – 3,718

Vauxhall’s Corsa takes the crown for the most registered car during November, with 3,718 units shifted during the month. A completely new take on the classic Corsa formula, the new model brings a bold look and a more spacious platform too. 

A new electric version gives another option, while plenty of standard equipment makes the Corsa a sure-fire hit for those looking for a good deal.

Volkswagen Golf – 3,625

The arrival of Volkswagen’s latest eight-generation Golf was hampered initially as it arrived just as the first wave of coronavirus restrictions came into effect. As a result, those first few months didn’t end up being much of a success for the Golf. 

Now, however, it’s starting to bounce back. Taking the second-place podium in November, the new Golf is starting to prove a hit with buyers.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class – 3,243

Though the Mercedes-Benz has been around for a little while now, its popularity is waning very little. Offering a premium experience as well as a range of refined yet punchy engines, the A-Class is one of the classiest hatchbacks available today. 

Its interior is a great place to be, too, while new hybrid models add to the efficiency A-Class’ efficiency levels.

Nissan’s long-lasting Qashqai continues to be popular with UK car buyers, thanks to its excellent practicality and good value-for-money. Though it’s been on our roads for some time now, impressive equipment levels and decent engine choices ensure that the Qashqai remains competitive. 

It’s also got more tech than ever before, with a range of assistance systems ensuring it keeps occupants safe.

Ford Focus – 2,922

The Focus is a consistent sight on this list, with Ford’s key hatchback cementing itself as a firm family favourite each month. The latest-generation Focus is by far the most refined yet, with a good range of engines and a solidly made interior.

A go-faster ST version is there who want more performance, while an estate variant provides more practicality for those who require it.

A new electric version - badged Mini Electric - has also hit the market, providing buyers with a battery-powered variant of the famous hatchback.

Ford Puma – 2,522

The Fiesta-based Puma may have only arrived on the UK’s roads recently, but it’s already proving popular with buyers. Thanks to striking looks and a well-packaged design, the Puma provides a great option for those who want just a little more space than the regular Fiesta brings.

A performance-orientated ST version also gives those who want a go-faster version of the Puma an option.

Ford’s Fiesta is a consistent sight on this list. A household name across the UK, the Fiesta is seen as a great buy for new drivers, smaller families and everyone in between. It’s surprisingly practical and good to drive, too.

Though a diesel variant has been dropped, Ford has galvanised the Fiesta’s range of engines through the introduction of a new ultra-efficient mild-hybrid powertrain.
