Ford comes out on top as new car sales rise

Ford car dealers have reason to celebrate at the moment, with newly published figures showing that their Fiesta model was the UK's top selling new vehicle last month.

According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), April saw no less than 142,322 new registrations throughout the country. This represents a 3.3% increase on numbers from the same period last year.

Paul Everitt, chief executive of the SMMT, said that a steady increase in consumer confidence should ensure that 2012's sales will eclipse those of the previous twelve months, with Ford playing a leading role in this success.

The company's strong achievements were not just limited to Fiestas, either, with the Focus being named as the third most purchased car of the month.

Regardless of whether you are looking for new or used Ford cars, you will find that all of the Foray showrooms have a wide range of excellent models to choose from.
