More than two million new cars were sold in the UK last year according to MSN Money, an increase of 5.3% on 2011 and the highest figure since 2008.

The increase was the biggest since 2001, with sales of new vehicles boosted by strong consumer demand, said the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).

SMMT chief executive Paul Everitt said the new car market grew last year at the fastest rate for more than a decade, driven by innovative, fuel-efficient models.

The Ford Fiesta was the best-selling car of 2012, with more than 109,000 models being bought, followed by the Vauxhall Corsa (89,434), Ford Focus (83,115) and Vauxhall Astra (63,023).

Last year's healthy sales figures followed a 12.9% increase in private demand for new cars. Despite the strong performance of the motor industry, the new car market was 14.9% below the pre-recession level of 2.4 million sales in 2007.

Mr Everitt said: "More than two million new cars were registered in the UK during 2012, up 5.3% on the previous 12 months and the best result since recession struck in 2008.

"Boosted by strong consumer demand, the market grew at its fastest rate for 11 years with innovative, fuel-efficient cars keeping buyers in showrooms. Looking ahead to 2013, we anticipate the market will hold firm, with manufacturers and dealers working hard to deliver quality and value to motorists."
