New data from Scrap Car Comparison revealed which car makes and models were crushed most often in 2022.
Ford Focus was the UK’s most scrapped car model in 2022 and Ford was top of the crusher comparison.
The Vauxhall Astra and Vauxhall Corsa followed as the second and third most scrapped car models last year, with the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Golf completing the top five, which is identical to that of 2021.
With models such as the Ford Fiesta having been discontinued in early 2022, it’s likely that this top five will remain largely unchanged over the coming years, with many more Fiestas predicted to hit the scrap heap in the years to come.
Despite last year’s list being largely reflective of 2021’s most scrapped models, there were a few new additions to this 2022’s top ten, including the executive BMW 3 Series – which is the first time a BMW vehicle has ranked in Scrap Car Comparison’s top ten list.
The Ford Transit. often the van of choice for tradespeople, and the retro Mini Hatch Cooper/One were also new additions to the list, with some of 2021’s top ten vehicles instead including the Peugeot 206, Volkswagen Polo and Ford Mondeo, which dropped just outside of the top ten in 2022.
As consistent market leading brand in Britain, Ford is also revealed as the most scrapped car manufacturer of 2022.
With the Ford Focus the most scrapped car model of 2022, and two other Ford models placing in the top ten, it was no surprise that Ford also ranks as the most scrapped car manufacturer overall, with almost 16% of all cars scrapped last year.
