Most Popular First Drives

Top 10 most popular new car first drives on

Models with electric motors and petrol engines were March’s most popular. The rankings of the plug-in hybrid BMW 330e and the hybrid version of Honda’s new CR-V give a good indication of where consumer preference is headed.

These first drives were notably more popular than a drive in a prototype of the new 1 Series family hatchback – one of three BMW models in the top 10.

The appearance of the Land Rover Discovery Sport Landmark Edition in fourth place demonstrates the interest that special editions can generate among What Car? readers, given that this run-out model brings changes to only styling and specification.
