World Best Selling Coupe Ford-Mustang_EcoBoost-2015

World Best Selling Coupe 2016 was again the Ford Mustang stable from the previous year. The fast growing model within the top 10 was the Mazda MX-5 thanks to last generation success.

The Sport Coupe, probably the most fashioning car segment, in the 2016 was reported up 0.2% from the previous year at 0.8 million of global sales.

The leader unchanged and was always the same, the Ford Mustang.

When in March 9, 1964 the first units come out from the Dearborn plant the dream of Ford engineers was to create something special for the young generation that was revolutionizing the style of life in America. They assigned to this car the name of Mustang, as a small american horse. 50 years later, the sixth generation was unveiled during a global event on December 5, 2013, in Dearborn, New York, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Shanghai and Sydney. The car evolved as global icon and distributed in over 100 markets globally.

Fans have been clamoring for the return of hood vent-integrated turn signals for years, and in a nod to heritage Ford is honoring the request, bringing back the popular feature as standard equipment for owners of the 2016 Mustang GT. First offered on the 1967 Mustang, secondary indicators in the hood vents would come to represent an iconic piece of pony car DNA. Now, this segment-exclusive feature will serve as an additional “heads-up” for Mustang GT drivers.

The Ford Mustang global sales in the 2016 had been 144.000 (-0.7%) with US, Canada, China, Germany and Australia as top destination.

In second place the Dodge Charger with 104.000 (-4.7%), very popular in North America and in the Arabic Gulf, and third was the Chevrolet Camaro with 79.000 (+4.5%).

The fast growing model on the top ten has been the Mazda MX-5, up 43% at 37.000 units.
