Most popular reviews – December 2018

A Porsche Macan Driving Down A Road

Top 20 most-read new car reviews on whatcar.com

Two striking entries in this table this month are Vauxhall’s Crossland X and Grandland X SUVs, in fifth and sixth place respectively. That’s because Vauxhalls rarely appear in the top 10, despite the brand’s chunky market share.

Nissan enjoyed a particularly strong showing in December, with our review of the Qashqai family SUV being the most read, while the brand’s X-Trail and Juke SUVs placed fourth and seventh respectively, despite the fact that the latter is ageing to the point that it now scores just a two-star rating.

Seat also continues to perform strongly, with its Ibiza, Leon and Ateca all taking top 10 spots, although Cupra’s new version of the Ateca attracted almost a third of that model’s traffic.
