The Jeep Grand Cherokee was again the best seller across the Group with 970 retails – more than double its February 2012 sales.

The Chrysler 300 and Dodge Nitro were also standouts in February.

“The customer interest we are currently experiencing in our brands is testament to the hard work and dedication of the Fiat Chrysler team. We have the right products at the right price and are working hard to ensure the value equation, when compared to our competitors, always measures up.

“This year we will add more than 20 new models to our product portfolio across the Jeep, Chrysler, Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Abarth brands, offering our customers more choice than ever before,” said Mr Campbell.
