Most popular brands – October 2020

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

BMW scores a narrow victory over Audi to take the top spot this month, helped no doubt by an influx of tempting Target Price discounts, including more than £3700 off the latest 3 Series executive saloon, and more than £8000 off our reigning Luxury Car of the Year, the 5 Series. Elsewhere, Nissan slips out of our list from 17th position last month, while Peugeot rockets from outside the top 20 to take 16th position, likely helped by new offers celebrating the manufacturer’s 210-year anniversary. Those offers currently let buyers drive the new 2008 small SUV for just £309 per month.
