Definition

It is defined a “Small car”  (or “B Class car” under the European segmentation) a small car passenger with a length size between the 3.7 and the 4.1 meters intended primarily for a use inside urban area. The term is used along with other terms for small cars including subcompact in North America.

Ranking

Following the decision of car makers to sales similar/same models with different nameplates across the Wold, all global ranking reported sales aggregated just for same nameplates and we do not assembly data. For instance, Suzuki Group distributes the Alto under the Maruti and Suzuki brand and respecting this strategy we report the two models separately.
