Top 10 most popular new car first drives on whatcar.com

The rising interest in electrified models is evident here. With Tesla’s new, more affordable Model 3 rising to second place (after several months in the top 10) behind the hybrid version of Honda’s new CR-V SUV. Meanwhile, in the sixth spot is Kia’s electric e-Niro. The plug-in hybrid Range Rover Sport P400e also appears, scoring more reads than reviews of the all-new BMW 3 Series – placing it on our most popular first drive list.

Skoda’s new Scala places high, with this more traditional, Ford Focus-rivalling family hatchback. Which, has proved to be popular, being the fourth most popular first drive read.

Ahead of the Scala is the new Suzuki Jimny off-roader. This model of narrow but very effective abilities that has acquired a cult following in this country. However, at the other end of the price scale, is the mind-boggling Lamborghini Urus super-SUV. Which, is continuing to attract plenty of views in spite of its super-limited affordability.
