Top 10 most popular videos on What Car’s YouTube channel

Our in-depth Land Rover Defender video review has been our most successful video of the past month. It’s no great surprise, really, given the car’s iconic status and the high expectations of its ardent fan base – indeed, What Car? Readers rated it as the car they were most excited about at our Car of the Year Awards back in January.

The Defender is closely followed by our Volkswagen Golf and Seat Leon twin test. These two mainstream pillars of the family car class are both new and radically different to their previous incarnations. Being in such a popular segment means the cars naturally generate a lot of interest and share a lot of sales between them. The fact that this test also has a ‘shock’ end verdict may also have helped to promote interest in the video.

In a similar vein to the Golf test, our recent Ford Puma and Nissan Juke comparison completes the top three. Two important cars in an extremely popular (and fast growing) class were always going to give a video review a good chance of big views. Elsewhere in the top 10 we see the continuing popularity of electric cars, with our Tesla Model S review, Volkswagen ID.4 preview and Best electric cars video all performing well.
