Itís not imagination. AID compiled data reveals that Britainís already crowded urban and rural roads now appear packed more than ever with latest design SUV-Crossovers. So much so in fact that during this yearís first half a forever growing avalanche of trendy SUV-Crossovers alone was responsible for almost four-in-ten of the new cars hitting UK roads for the first time. This on-going rate of breakneck sales expansion crowned SUV-Crossovers as the UKís way and ahead biggest car sector, according to AID compiled car sales data

This first half, SUV-Crossovers captured just over 37 per cent of UK new car sales, according to AID compiled data. 

Thatís yet another new all-time record. 

To spotlight the sectorís slam-bang pace of expansion, during the past six months alone the sectorís car sales share in the UK grew by a dizzying 4.6 percentage points. 

This compares with 32.6 per cent for the whole of last year. 

The subjective impression for everyday road users that the bulk of UK new car sales consists more than ever of taller than average Crossovers is borne out by latest industry supplied sales numbers. 

After years of faster than average sales growth, today SUV-Crossovers stand out head and shoulders above all other car sectors.

Trusted industry-sourced UK information reveals that during this yearís first-half SUV-Crossovers comfortably outsold every other sector.
