Most popular brands – October 2021

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

Having displaced Volkswagen at the top of our table back in September, BMW again kept hold of its lead last month, no doubt helped by tempting Target Price offers across its model range. Those savings, at the time of writing, include up to £2480 off the 5 Series luxury car, and up to £2703 off the X3 large SUV.

Elsewhere, Hyundai continued its march up our rankings, largely thanks to the continuing good reaction towards the Ioniq 5 electric car. Seat and Nissan both also rose two places within the top 20 – the biggest savings from those brands are currently found on the Tarraco large SUV (up to £3252 off) and the Leaf electric car (£3451 off).

Lexus moved down three places compared with last time, while Vauxhall, Tesla and Suzuki fell just outside the top 20.
