Most popular brands – November 2020

Mazda MX-30

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

Two new brands join the top 20 this month, with both Nissan and Jaguar propelled by tempting Target Price discounts. For example, buyers can currently save up to £3482 on the F-Pace large SUV, and up to £3449 on the Micra small hatchback.

Elsewhere, Peugeot leapfrogs both Honda and Lexus to take 14th position this month, while Mazda pulls off the same feat, overtaking both Land Rover and Seat. The latter has been spurred both by our review of the new MX-30 electric car, and by a new finance offer delivering 0% APR and the option to defer the first three monthly payments on a range of new models.

Hyundai is also currently offering 0% APR deals on its Kona Electric and Ioniq hybrid models, contributing to that brand moving two places up our table.
