China was the largest market for new cars for the first half of the year, with 12.3m sold in the Asian country, while 9.77m were sold across the whole of Europe.

SUVs still continue to dominate the scene, with a 34 per cent market share — a colossal gap over the compact segment in second, which held 16.1 per cent of the market.
