New data from scrap price comparison service Scrap Car Comparison reveals which car makes and models hit the scrap heap most often in 2021, according to internal data of the cars scrapped by the provider during last year.
Scrap Car Comparison’s data revealed that it was the Ford Focus that hit the scrap heap the most in 2021. With the average age of scrapped vehicles sitting at around 14 years old, it’s easy to see why so many of these cars are now hitting the scrap heap – the Ford Focus topped the charts as the most sold car in 2001 and maintained this position through to 2007, so many are likely to be coming to the end of their driveability.
The Vauxhall Astra and Vauxhall Corsa followed as the second and third most scrapped car models last year. However, Ford models continue to feature heavily in the top 10 most scrapped cars, with the popular Ford Fiesta following in fourth and Ford Mondeo in tenth position.

More than 76,418 Ford cars reached the end of their time on the roads last year, with Vauxhall following as the second most scrapped make in 2021.
