Most-read new car reviews – September 2019

New Car Reviews

Top 20 most-read new car reviews on

Having marched into the top 20 last month, BMW’s 1 Series is now nowhere to be seen among What Car?’s most-read reviews, showing how quickly interest in a new model can wane after its initial introduction. Similarly, the Volkswagen Golf and Mercedes A-Class – both mainstays of this list in recent months – have dropped off the board entirely. In the Golf’s case, that’s probably because both an all-new model and the all-electric ID 3 are inbound.

The big winner is the new Toyota Corolla, which comes from well outside the top 20 last month to take ninth position. A continuing glut of positive reviews – the Corolla is our favourite hybrid – and a 0% finance offer are most likely contributing to that rising attention. Meanwhile, the Volvo XC40 is clinging on gamely at the top.
