The Vauxhall Corsa was the UK's best-selling car in 2021.
Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) figures show 40,914 Corsas were registered, including 5,605 electric Corsa-Es.
The Tesla Model 3 placed second, with 34,783 registrations - boosted by nearly 10,000 registrations in December - and the Mini Hatch was third with 31,792.
The rest of the top ten was completed by the Mercedes-Benz A-Class (30,710 registrations), Volkswagen Polo (30,634), Volkswagen Golf (30,240), Nissan Qashqai (29,922), Ford Puma (28,697), Kia Sportage (27,611), and Toyota Yaris (27,415).
Previous market leader the Ford Fiesta missed out on the top ten entirely, though its maker did have some consolation as its Transit Custom van was the UK's best-selling vehicle overall with more than 50,000 registrations.
