World Best Selling Compact Cars. Honda Civic in the podium

World Best Selling Compact Cars Honda-Civic_EU-Version-2017

World Best Selling Compact Cars segment starts the year losing 1.5% of volume. The launch of the European models boosted the Honda Civic sales and the compact Japanese jumped in the third step of the podium.

Models included in our global ranking for the “compact” or “C segment” (under the EU segmentation) cars are only sedan, hatchback, coupe and wagon, excluding the SUV, reported in a different report. This is probably the reason behind the segment decline while the industry is growing.

Indeed, during the first two months of the year, the total sales had been 2.44 million, down 1.5%, while industry performed up near 4%.

Starting from the final 2016 ranking, the new year has not presented news on top of the list.

As in the recent years, the Toyota Corolla is on top with 183.000 units (-1.4), selling  followed by the Volkswagen Golf with 133.000 sales (-9.5%)and the Honda Civic, up 2 spots, with 106.000 sales (++27.7%).

Down the podium,  the Hyundai Elantra, up 2 spots, with 101.000 sales (+25.6%) ahead of the Ford Focus, down 2 spots, with 95.376 units (-15.3%) and the Volkswagen Jetta, leader in the sedan sub-segment with 88.766 sales (-0.2%)

In seventh place the Mazda3 with 67.8532 (-3.9%) followed by the Skoda Octavia with 67.333 (-0.55%), the Chevrolet Cruze, down 2 spots, with 57.315 units (-26.0%) and in 10th place the Volkswagen Sagitar with 50.994 (-4.8%).
