More than two million new cars were sold in the UK last year, an increase of 5.3% on 2011 and the highest since 2008, new figures show.


The increase was the biggest since 2001, with sales of new vehicles boosted by strong consumer demand, said the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
