world-best-selling-car Honda-Civic_Type_R_Concept-2016

World Best Selling Car 2016 ranking with Ford F-Series advanced very near the second place, behind Toyota Corolla and VW Golf. One of the stars of the year has been the new Honda Civic, up 7 spots and ranking 10th.

Sourcing from the focus2move proprietary Database, updated each day collecting vehicles sales in over 130 markets in the World, we are able to publish this exclusive ranking of World Best Selling Car, including all light vehicles.

The ranking is done respecting the customer view in the market, so we do not assembly similar models sold under different nameplates (for instance, Honda Fit is not added to Honda Jazz (if you do not like they are split, please ask why to Honda Motor…) while we assembly sales done by the same nameplate under different body styles. So Corolla sales includes all versions, hatchback and sedan (but not the Auris)

The Top 100 Ranking

Final 2016 ranking is now updated with all data collected at the end of March 2017 (so including final data for almost all countries)

The market leader has lost sales, and this is quite an event after a decade of annual records, Indeed, the Toyota Corolla sales in the year were down 4.1% with over 1.3 million units, losing over 50k units from the 2015 record.

The second model, the Volkswagen Golf, has lost more, falling down from the 1 million units hit in the 2015 for the first time, losing 6.1% at 995.000 units, just few more than the best pick up in the World, the Ford F-Series, market leader in US and Canada since 40 years advanced near the second place with 990.000 sales, up an outstanding 7.6%,

Volkswagen Golf is sold in all the World but the most of its volume is done in Europe, where in the 2016 it has dominated again the best-selling ranking.

In the fourth place the Hyundai Elantra, recently renovated and very successful with its 788.000 sales, up 1 spot and 3.5% from 2015, ahead of the best selling SUV, the Honda CR-V, at record sales of 750.000 units.

Further losing terrain, the Ford Focus ranked sixth, down 2 spots, with 734.000 units (-11.9%). the Focus has lost over one fourth of million in the last three years, but the main reason was the launch in China of the Ford Escort, a C class that has cannibalized the Focus with near 300.000 sales in the 2016 (ranking 59th).

The Toyota RAV4 failed the attach to the SUV leadership while raising in 7th place with 727.000 sales (+10.2%) up 3 spots, ahead of the leader of the small cars, the Volkswagen Polo, sold in 700.000 units (+0.7%).

In ninth place the Toyota Camry, leader of the Mid size segment, down 3 spots with 660.000 sales (-11.5%) ahead of one of the star of the year, the Honda Civic, just renovated and up 7 spots with 654.000 sales.
