UK Car Sales By Brand : 1985-89

As the economy picked up, so did car sales.

A big hit in the UK

Local: Ford and Vauxhall took full advantage of the upswing, while BLMC changed to Rover as it struggled along. The Fiesta, Escort and Sierra were usually 1-2-3 in this period. The Astra/Cavalier were very successful for GM Vauxhall. While the Metro/200/Montego were holding up, they were unable to push Rover up.

A quality car which was probably underrated in the UK

Imports: When Talbot came under Peugeot, it really did wonders for the brand. The 205 even made 10th in 1987.  Nissan had the Micra and Bluebird models commence UK assembly and both sold quite well. The Golf was the main seller for VW, making it to 11th in 1989.
