Ford was the UK's top-selling brand for the second month in a row in October. The U.S. automaker's 95 percent increase in volume to 13,295 units was underpinned by a 156 percent gain in sales to private customers during the month.
Ford's success helped the overall market rise 26 percent to 134,344 vehicles last month. It was the UK market's third increase in a row.
The models leading Ford's sales surge were the Fiesta small hatchback and Puma small SUV, with registrations up 684 percent and 423 percent, respectively.
"It seems that the brand recently focused on the output of affordable volume cars in the face of tightening budgets of private customers in the UK," Dataforce Senior Automotive Analyst Benjamin Kibies said.
