Most searched-for new car reviews by brand – March 2020

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

Renault has launched two new models recently, in the shape of the Clio small hatchback and Captur small SUV, and this helped propel the brand into the top 20, displacing Vauxhall, which has been on a downward trend for a while.

Toyota made the biggest gain in terms of market share, up from 3.2% in December to 5.3% in January. That was most likely fuelled by growth in demand for hybrid cars – an area in which Toyota is strong – in the wake of continued anti-diesel sentiment.
