68 Plate Cars: What will be the top cars in demand?

Coming on September 1, the 68 Plate is the next major point in the motoring calendar and we take a look at the cars that are likely to be the most popular.

Every year, the British car market undergoes two plate changes so that the registration period for a vehicle can be easily identified.

So, with the September plate change coming up that will see the introduction of the 68 plate, we take a look at the vehicles that are likely to garner the most interest from British drivers…

10. Mercedes C-Class

Likely to be challenged by the BMW 3 Series as the dominant executive saloon, the Mercedes C-Class currently holds a spot in the UK top ten. As one of the top premium models on sale, it is likely the compact saloon will hold a place in many a businessperson’s garage.

9. Mercedes A-Class

Especially after the introduction of an all-new model, the Mercedes A-Class is likely to attract a lot of customers as it comes with a lot of premium features and is a high-end hatchback that Mercedes hopes will bring in plenty of interest.

In terms of an all-round car, the Golf is probably the best available. A well-sized hatchback with efficient engine offerings, the Golf has been the car of the people in Europe for some time and continues to succeed here as well.
