Ford Focus tops Britain sale as buyers scrap fewer older cars
According to the new 2013 statistics the British would rather drive the Ford Focus than any other car. The stats also reveal that the country has seen the biggest numbers in terms of cars in a decade. According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders the extra dependence on olds cars have come down on the 1.4% rise to the 32 million cars of all time high found in Great Britain and Northern Ireland the previous year. The figures were calculated by using the licensing data of the Government. Out of the 1.46 million totals the most common car found in the UK is the version of Ford Focus.Photo 1: FORD
Compared to the past year half million vehicles were added to the total as buyers bought newer cars while scrapping fewer cars. The percentage of cars for the past 12 years almost rose to 11% in comparison with 2012 and this pushed the average age of cars by a full year making it 7.7 years.
The economic scene of today requires cars to be more durable hence need to produce cars that lasts longer as quoted by SMMT. Britain’s current favorite the Ford Fiesta that is also the top selling is the most sought after with 1.42 million and it is followed by the Vauxhall Corsa and Astra, second and third respectively.
The most popular car color is silver and in the total of 32 million you will find one out of four of that color. Black color enhanced its share last year by 5 percent accounting to 18% of all cars and grey was found one in ten cars. Blue took the bating with a 3% fall, however in the overall numbers it is the second favorite color.
According to AA the greater reliability however will bow down in front of the greater complexity hence durability will go down. For an example a warning light can fail a car in and it will be costlier to sort a faulty airbag.
