Once again, the Ford Focus has topped the list of the most common vehicles serviced in garages during 2016, according to figures released by Autodata.
Ford first introduced their popular compact car to Europe less than 20 years ago, in 1998. Just one year later, in 1999 the Ford Focus (1st generation) was awarded European Car of the Year. Today there are over 1.5 million Ford Focus models on UK roads. Other models to feature in this years top five include the Vauxhall Astra, Peugeot 206, Ford Transit, and Vauxhall Corsa.
This years top 20 also includes other highly popular vehicles such as the Nissan Qashqai, Ford Fiesta, Volkswagen Passat, Renault Megane, Volkswagen Polo, and the Audi A3, which made its world debut 20 years ago, in 1996.
Autodata compiled the list based on the number of service schedules accessed by its UK and European subscribers, with over 67% of workshops in the UK having used Autodata’s latest online platform in the past 12 months.
