The time has come to announce the best selling cars of 2014! Who has ruled the roost this year? Letís find outÖ

1. Ford Fiesta

A staple of any road in the UK, the Ford Fiesta tops the chart yet again. Not only that, but half way through this year it become the UKís best ever selling car, after shifting over four million since 1976. With slick looks, low running costs and affordability, itís not hard to see why. The Fiesta also comes in a range of models, boosting its appeal to a range of people. From the entry level to sporty suave, there really is a Fiesta for everyone!

2. Ford Focus

A serious facelift was carried out on the Ford Focus this year. The results? A sexy chrome grille, improved interior and distinctive headlights. No doubt this bolstered its popularity amongst those looking for style as well as substance. Much like the Fiesta, the Focus comes in a range of models making it an appealing option for many.

3. Vauxhall Corsa

Itís roomy and affordable, not to mention most come well equipped as standard. Inside comprises of a range of materials, which includes cushioned arm rests and gloss-finish trim: a bit of luxury on a budget. Undercutting its main rivals has done wonders for the Corsa, securing it third place.

4. Volkswagen Golf

Whilst the Volkswagen Golf is pricier than itís main rivals, none possess the coveted upmarket image the Golf has so successfully cultivated over the years. And the latest generation just proves this. The 7th generation Golf is 100kg lighter whilst offering a super styled interior and a sharper driving experience.

5. Nissan Juke

The Juke is a little car with a lot of pizzazz. Offering a dramatically distinctive look, a stack of in-car technology and a budget friendly entry point, itís not hard to see why the Juke comes in at number five. That said, its distinctive sloping roofline does eat into a bit of headroom and the boot space.

6. Nissan Qashqai

The second generation Qashqai has seriously upped the ante. The build quality has been enhanced, thereís a plethora of multimedia technology to choose from and an overall improvement to safety. The cabin is roomy, but fans of the old Qashqai may be surprised to learn the newer model only offers five seats, not seven.

7. Volkswagen Polo

Newly updated, the Polo is a super-mini of the finest variety. It offers a fantastic build quality, budget friendly running costs and a huge choice of engines. It might lack innovative styling, but it is a conventionally appealing car with a decent interior. A solid number seven.

8. Audi A3

Audiís first executive saloon offering is a decent effort. With an electromechanical steering set-up, impressive multimedia system and Google Earth imagery, it certainly offers a premium feel. Itís pricey, but clearly worth it at number 8.

9. MINI

The latest Mini hatchback is, ironically, bigger than its predecessor. But with the extra space, comes extra features. There is a five door model available, higher levels of technology as standard and plenty of retro interior styling.

10. Vauxhall Astra

The Vauxhall Astra has been popular since its inception in the late 70s, however little has changed to the cars appearance in that time. But its decent build, secure handling and spacious cabin are reliable. And it seems reliability is important, as the Astra steals the last spot, making the tenth best-selling car in the UK this year.
