Vauxhall is Britain’s bestseller because more than any other factor, they have great looking cars like the Astra, Corsa and Insignia.
It’s a real shame that Holden can’t bring these three particular models to Australia, as they would most likely be just as popular down here as they are in the U.K.
I saw warmed up editions (GTC) of both the Insignia and Corsa at last year’s Nurburgring 24 Hour race, and they were attracting plenty of German onlookers eager to know more about these cars.
Vauxhall sold more cars than any other manufacturer in June with a tally of 30,190 registrations for the month.
Astra was Britain’s best selling range, fending off stiff competition from the likes of Ford Focus and the Volkswagen Golf.
In the UK, the Astra is perceived as a premium offering in the small car segment and yet, still managed to sell over 14,000 units across the month. Things are likely to get even better for the model, with the advent of a Sports Tourer variant later this year, which by all accounts is a real head turner.
The larger and very stylish Insignia also managed to come in ahead of BMW’s 3 Series with 15,575 cars sold and testament to that car’s build quality, styling and general driveability.
Even the compact MPV the Zafira, ended up as the category leader with a total of 15,392 sold since January.
