Ford reports that its European sales rose 5.5% in March compared with the same month last year.
The automaker sold 191,000 in the month, led by demand for the Fiesta. But sales of the Focus C-Max and Streetka also rose, the company said.
The performance left Ford with a 9.8% share of Europe's new car market for the month. Its share of the UK market rose to 15.3% in March from 14.6% a year ago.
