Fleet Alliance Lists Top Fleet Vehicles in the UK Market
Korean manufacturer, Kia Motors, is the fastest growing brand in a top 10 list of the best-selling fleet models in the UK for 2013, according to fleet management and leasing specialist, Fleet Alliance, based on new cars ordered by fleet customers this year.
For the first time there were two Kia models, the Ceed and the Sportage, in the company’s best-selling charts. The Ceed rose 51 places to seventh in terms of sales volume, while the Sportage rose from 10th place last year to eighth place this year, according to Fleet Alliance.
At the very top of the Fleet Alliance list, the dominance of German brands continued with the Audi A3 moving up one place to be 2013’s most popular model. This was followed by the Volkswagen Passat, which dropped down one place from its No. 1 position in 2012 to finish second this year, according to the company.
Hard on their heels came two cars from Vauxhall, with the Insignia in third position, up one place on last year, and the Astra in fourth place, up from 13th position in 2012.
Fleet Alliance compiled a list of the ten most popular models from those supplied to fleet customers so far this year on its fleet of around 11,000 vehicles.
