Most popular brands – September 2021

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

The top of this month’s table is unchanged from last time, but lower down the ground is shifting, with Citroen, Seat and Vauxhall all moving into the top 20 following absences last month. All three brands are currently offering tempting Target Price discounts to prospective buyers, including savings of up to £3766, £4237 and £2098 on the Ateca family SUV, Berlingo people carrier and Astra family car respectively. Indeed, Seat has some of the healthiest discounts across its model range, with both the aforementioned Ateca deal and savings of up to £2454 on the smaller Arona SUV being some of the most generous discounts available in their respective markets.

Lexus also moves three places up our rankings, from 17th to 14th position, helped by tempting discounts on its SUV range, including up to £5423 off the RX large SUV, and up to £3578 off the smaller NX.

And while our top two brands are unchanged this month, the gap between them is growing, with Volkswagen carving out a bigger lead this time over second-place BMW.
