The best-selling cars of 2022

  • The best-selling cars of 2022

A look at 2022's top-selling vehicle models

With the festivities well and truly over, and (most) of the Christmas food polished off, it’s time to get stuck into a brand new year. But what about the last one? Here at Warranty First, we protected cars, bikes and vans up and down the country, and supported the businesses of used car dealers too. Every year we like to take a peek at the best-selling used cars from the last 12 months; here are 2022’s top 10… 

Ford Fiesta

Are we surprised? Not really! Despite being marked for discontinuation by Ford this year, the popularity of used Fiesta models shows no sign of slowing down - it’s the best-selling used car of 2022!

Vauxhall Corsa

The Corsa is another familiar face on these lists, thanks to the boxes it ticks for fuel economy, spaciousness, and well-equipped cabin.

Volkswagen Golf

If you want robust German build quality from your next used hatchback, choose the Volkswagen Golf - it seems many have done just that once again this year! 

Ford Focus

Slightly bigger than the Fiesta, the Focus is favoured amongst families as a practical, roomy all-rounder - it’s pretty good looking too. 

Vauxhall Astra

Do you do a mixture of around-town journeys and motorway driving? The Astra can comfortably manage both; it’s your new best friend. New models are now in their 7th generation! 

MINI Hatch 

A classic design with all the mod cons - if you feel like you saw a lot of MINIS in 2022, you probably did; they were a best-seller! 

BMW 3 Series

A little bit of luxury with your next car? That’s exactly what the 3 Series provides, with a premium interior and handling that’s more than competent. 

Volkswagen Polo 

Loved by first-time drivers, commuters and small families alike, the Polo has compact dimensions but a big personality. And it’s one of the more economical choices on this list! 

Audi A3 

Another well-equipped premium model that has confidently stood the test of time; there are plenty of stunning used models on the market, and many of them were snapped up in 2022 it seems. 

Nissan Qashqai 

The Qashqai features on both the new and used best-seller lists for 2022 thanks to its appeal as a pretty perfect family car! Light and easy to drive with enough room for all the family, it’s no surprise to see that its popularity stayed put last year.
