Ford Focus was the most serviced vehicle model in garages this year.

Once again, the Ford Focus has topped the list of the most serviced vehicles in garages during 2016, according to figures released by Autodata.

Ford first introduced their popular compact car to Europe less than 20 years ago, in 1998. Just one year later, in 1999 the Ford Focus (1st generation) was awarded European Car of the Year. Today there are over 2.5 million registered Ford Focus cars on European roads. Other models to feature in this year's top five include the Opel Astra, Peugeot 206, Ford Transit, and Opel Corsa.

This year’s top 20 also includes other highly popular vehicles such as the Nissan Qashqai, Ford Fiesta, Volkswagen Passat, Renault Megane, Volkswagen Polo, and the Audi A3 which made its world debut 20 years ago, in 1996.

Autodata compiled the list based on the number of service schedules accessed by its European subscribers in the past 12 months.

Autodata’s CEO, Rod Williams said: “One of the many benefits of Autodata’s continuous evolution is the increasingly high levels of industry intelligence it provides. It allows us to see where the demand for content exists so that we can provide the most in-demand and up-to-date information to workshops.”
