Vauxhall has increased its share of the UK new car market for the third month in a row.

New figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders showed a market share for the brand of 7.23 per cent in November, up from 6.65 per cent in the same month last year. Vauxhall’s car and commercial vehicle market share has now enjoyed growth in five of the last six months.
