Most popular first drives – November 2018

The most popular first drive, the Toyota Corolla prototype driving down a road

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

The return of the Toyota Corolla is clearly of great interest to whatcar.com readers; the British-built family car was the most-read first drive in November.

A new engine for the perennially popular Seat Ateca family SUV puts it in second, while, encouragingly for Jaguar, the new 300 Sport version of the slow-selling XE compact saloon was the third most read.

Perhaps the most surprising entry in this top 10 is the Lamborghini Urus; the supercar maker’s SUV appears for a second consecutive month and rises from 10th place to seventh. This model clearly has a much wider appeal than the Aventador or Huracán.

A sharp contrast with the Urus is another 4×4, the first new version of the affordable Suzuki Jimny in 20 years. This is in eighth, while another long-established but freshly renewed SUV, the Honda CR-V, appears in fourth.
