New figures released by the SMMT show that for both June 2011 and year to date selling figures, the Ford Fiesta tops the figures tables, with 8,829 units sold in June 2011, and 51,643 units sold year-to-date.

The Ford Focus follows in second place, with 8,055 units sold in June and 43,825 units year-to-date.

In the last 12 months, overall new car registrations have fallen; June registrations were down by 6.2 per cent, with a year to date rate of 7.2 per cent down for the first half of 2011.

For diesel cars, registrations rose by 4.0 per cent in June, and for the first six months of 2011, they are up by 7.5 per cent. Superminis' market share is one percentage point up, to 36.7 per cent.

June new car registrations continued to perform in line with industry expectations with robust demand in the fleet sector and a relatively weak retail market. The balance of demand makes this a tough time for vehicle manufacturers and their dealer networks," said Paul Everitt, SMMT Chief Executive. "Slow, but steady economic growth in the second half of the year should see volumes increase, although the overall market is still expected to be around 1.93 million units."
