§   January new car registrations up 5.2 per cent to 165,603 units

§  Supermini registrations rise by 18.7 per cent to 54,918 units

§  Diesel registrations up 11.7 per cent with 66,121 units registered in January

§ Ford Focus remains top seller, with 11,152 registrations


‘With a rise of 5.2 per cent, new car registrations in January showed an encouraging start to 2007. This was the first increase in three months and the largest rise since December 2005,’ said SMMT chief executive Christopher Macgowan.


‘The supermini segment performed outstandingly well with an increase of 18.7 per cent in new car registrations. This possibly reflects buyers taking such things as fuel costs, CO2 performance and interest rate movements into account more and more when purchasing a new car.’
