The best selling cars in the world
Ford Fiesta hatchback
. The Ford Fiesta has dominated the best selling cars list ever since it first launched in 2008. All Fiestas are good to look at inside and out, are well built, comfortable, and fun to drive. Even the basic model has electric windows and a CD player, while all Fiestas get a fivestar Euro NCAP safety rating. The most economical model can return economy of up to 85.6mpg and emits just 87g/km of CO2 for free road tax. If its nearlightning pace you seek, the performanceorientated Ford Fiesta ST can get from 060mph in just 6.9 seconds and is lots of fun to drive.
Ford Focus hatchback
. The new Ford Focus sharp looks should help it maintain its position near the top of the UK car sales charts. It has lots of standard equipment, including the SYNC 2 infotainment system with advanced voice recognition and the ability to read text messages aloud. Plus, its cut down on the amount of buttons required for the dashboard, so the Focus now feels more upmarket inside. What hasnt changed is the Focus great handling, which makes this the family car of choice for keen driver, particularly when you factor in Fords latest EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engines
Volkswagen Golf hatchback
. Along with the Ford Focus, the Volkswagen Golf is an excellent allrounder. Its build quality is excellent and, although the styling is a little conservative, it has proved to be one of the most recognisable cars on the market. The Golf is also fun to drive and offers a comfortable ride, while all models boast a fivestar Euro NCAP rating. All Golfs come with airconditioning, Bluetooth connectivity and a DAB digital radio, while a dashboardmounted touchscreen is also standard. The Golf Bluemotion can return excellent economy of 88.3mpg and qualifies for free road tax, while the Volkswagen Golf GTI can do 062mph in 6.5 seconds.
Vauxhall Corsa hatchback
. Healthy discounts, strong dealer networks and public loyalty to UK brands have undoubtedly helped the Vauxhall Corsa into the UKs list of topselling cars. Its by no means a terrible choice, but the Corsa is not one of the best models in its class though we hope a new model due later this year will change that. Positives are the spacious cabin, low running costs and a fivestar safety rating from Euro NCAP but there are quite a few areas in which the car could be improved. The styling, for example, could be more distinctive, the driving experience needs to be better and equipment levels could also be more generous. However, the most economical Corsa can return 85.6mpg and emits 88g/km of CO2 easily on a par with the more popular Ford Fiesta.
Volkswagen Polo hatchback
. The Volkswagen Polo is just like a smaller version of the Volkswagen Golf. That means it has good although slightly conservative looks, and is well built inside and out. A revised version is on the way, and while it isnt as much fun to drive as the Golf, it still feels more grown up than rivals like the Kia Rio and Vauxhall Corsa. Wed advise avoiding the more basic models with underpowered engines that become strained and noisy at high speeds. All cars get a DAB digital radio, electric front windows and central locking, and some models even manage 81mpg fuel economy. All Polos have a fivestar Euro NCAP rating for safety.
Fiat 500 hatchback
. The Fiat 500 is a stylish hatchback that promises cheap running costs and a lower list price than the popular MINI hatchback. The 500 might not be as fun to drive, but it is still a perky performer. Fiat offers the 500 with a wide range of colours and accessories, so its easy to make your 500 stand out from the crowd. Models such as the Volkswagen up! are more practical, though.
Vauxhall Astra hatchback
. The Vauxhall Astra is a much easier car to like than the smaller Corsa. While the Astra is not as fun to drive as the Ford Focus, it is not far off, with wellweighted steering and suspension that strikes a good compromise between comfort and good handling. The engines also strike a good balance between economy and performance ranging from economical diesels to the superquick VXR petrol model. All cars get airconditioning and remote central locking, and the Astra also has a fivestar Euro NCAP safety rating.
Audi A3 hatchback
. The Audi A3 offers an upmarket badge, along with the choice of four body styles including two hatchbacks, a saloon and a desirable convertible. All models are based on the Volkswagen Golf, but the extra money youll pay for the Audi gets you a higher quality interior. The Audi is good fun to drive and comfortable on the motorway. Both the saloon and hatchback are practical, with decent boots, while the convertible is one of the bestlooking cars on the road.
Peugeot 208 hatchback
. With the Peugeot 208 the French company has attempted to rekindle the magic of the Peugeot 205 a car that had buckets of charm and was lots of fun to drive. The 208s clearly been a success with the carbuying public and it is easy to see why when you first lay eyes on the pretty little Peugeot. A good range of engines and a broad choice of trim levels mean there is a 208 to suit everyone, from the basic 1.0litre petrol to the fast GTI. Its just a shame that it isnt quite as much fun to drive as Fords Fiesta.
Nissan Qashqai SUV
. The previous Nissan Qashqai was a huge success for Nissan and the new car looks on track to continue that. Its combination of SUV looks and low running costs should prove popular, but it also feels more grownup than its predecessor, which should help broaden its appeal. It has a classy new interior that feels better built than before, plus even more economical engines. The new model isnt quite as much fun to drive, but its quieter and more comfortable. Safety has also improved, with the Qashqais fivestar Euro NCAP rating making it one of the safest cars in its class.
