According to the latest official figures, the Ford Fiesta was knocked from its traditional top spot in February as Britain's best-selling new car, by the Volkswagen Golf.

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) announced 3,457 Golfs registered as opposed to 3,123 Fiestas.

In total, 79,594 new cars were registered in the UK during February – down year-on-year by 2.9 per cent.

Traditionally, February is one of the quietest months of the year new car registrations, as it's just ahead of the March number plate update.

With this year's all-new eight-generation Volkswagen Golf entering showrooms, it's no wonder people are looking to grab a decent deal on the outgoing model.

The other big surprise was the arrival of the BMW 5 Series at 10th place in the February list. Selling executive cars in such large numbers is uncommon.
