The UK is the only real automotive market in Europe which is neither stagnating nor declining - it is, in fact, growing. In November, the new car market in the UK grew by 11.3%, according to figures posted by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
It is now the second month in a row with a double-digit growth figure, which was mainly driven by private buyers, who bought 20% more cars than in November 2011. The year-to-date figure for the UK stands at 5.4%, when compared to last year, and now they have actually overtaken the French car market, and are now the second largest market in Europe, behind Germany.

This year, a record 1.9-million cars were registered, with the best-selling cars being two Fords: the Focus, which sold 7495 units in November, and the Fiesta, which sold 7483 cars in the same month. They were followed by the Vauxhall Corsa with 6164 units and the Volkswagen Golf, with 5165 units.
