3. Ford Focus (2016: 3rd)
2017 was the last full year for the current-generation Ford Focus, with a new model on the horizon for 2018. Holding steady in third place, with almost identical sales numbers to 2016 and against a whole host of newer rivals, will rightly be considered an excellent result at Ford HQ.
The Focus saw less than 1% drop in sales volumes, and even topped the charts in July (69,903 registrations in 2017 vs. 70,545 in 2016). The Focus has always been a fleet favourite, so it’s highly likely that there were some spectacular deals for big fleets to buy large numbers of the current model. An all-new model is expected to roll out in summer, and should help keep Focus sales ticking along for another year.
