Ford Fiesta, Focus, And Kuga Among U.K.’s Best-Selling Cars In July

Ford may not have any sedans (or cars in general, except for the Ford Mustang) left on sale in the U.S. now that the Fusion has been discontinued, but its cars are still selling rather well over in the U.K. In fact, The Blue Oval took three of the ten spots on the U.K.’s best-selling cars list for the month of July with strong showings by the Ford Fiesta, Ford Focus, and Ford Kuga.

Overall car sales in the U.K. were up 11 percent in July over last year, an impressive number given the lasting effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The all-new Vauxhall Corsa was the best-selling model in July for the second straight month, with 5,455 sales. That’s just 34 more than the Ford Fiesta, however, which came in second place with 5,421 units sold.

The Ford Focus moved up one spot to third place on the U.K.’s best-selling cars list for July, ahead of the Volkswagen Golf, with 4,981 units sold. It also represents over 1,000 additional units sold versus last July, which is a rather healthy increase.

Rounding out Ford’s triple thread is the Kuga, which came in tenth place with 2,686 units sold. The Kuga launched in the U.K. just prior to the COVID-19 induced lockdown, so it hasn’t really had time to establish much of a market just yet.

In terms of year-to-date sales, the Fiesta still holds the lead with 26,519 units sold. The Focus remains in second place with 23,126 sales, while the Corsa is closing in with 23,101 units sold so far in 2020.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Ford sold 61,421 Fusions during the first half of 2020. This was way down from 2019 due to Covid19. However, this is more than Mustang, Expedition, Ranger, Ecosport, Edge, and all of Lincoln. It is also more than any Kia or Hyundai model. I still think eliminating Fusion was a bad idea. How will they replace this volume?
