Citroen has shown steady sales growth since 2011 which has been critical in staying ahead of Hyundai and Kia, which are nipping at the brand's heels in the sales charts.
Growth of more than 6% last year came mainly from three highly successful new car launches – Grand C4 Picasso, C1 and C4 Cactus.
The impact of the DS range has also been inspired, capturing a whole army of buyers who might otherwise have been lost to rivals.
The DS 3 continues its run as the most popular choice for buyers across the Citroën and DS ranges, with 19,977 sales last year, including the cabriolet.
A series of management changes at the end of last year, including the appointment of Stéphane Le Guével as director general of PSA Peugeot Citroën UK, is designed to maintain growth momentum in 2015.
Note: Manufacturers administer the franchised contracts for cars and LCVs in different ways. Broadly, for some the contract to sell cars and LCVs is managed through a separate dealer contract. For others one contract covers both vehicle types.
AMi seeks to acknowledge the difference and reflect it in the count of each dealer groups total franchised outlets (franchised businesses) and sites (locations).
Citroen administers car and LCV sales under a single contract.
