Most popular brands – 2021

Top 20 most searched-for new car reviews by brand on whatcar.com

BMW has displaced Volkswagen at the top of our table this time, likely thanks to a series of tempting Target Price offers across its range. Those offers include savings of up to £6595 and £8756 off the What Car? Award-winning 3 Series and 5 Series saloons.

Elsewhere there are only minor movements within our top 20, with most brands moving either up or down our rankings by a single place. However, Lexus slips two places, from 14th to 16th position, and Renault returns to the top 20 following an absence last month. Renault’s re-entry into the list pushes Vauxhall out of the top 20.
