World Cars Brand Ranking Aston_Martin-Rapide_AMR-2018

World Cars Brand Ranking after two months of the 2017 shows the outstanding growth of Honda, fifth overtaking Hyundai, while Mercedes and Renault kept the already outstanding pace of the previous year.

The strong momentum in the global economy in Q4 2016 has carried over to this year, according to available economic data for Q1. Global GDP is set to expand 2.8% year-on-year in Q1, matching Q4’s result. The recovery, however, appears to be uneven as developed countries are leading most of this year’s upswing in global growth, with robust domestic demand buttressing growth in the Euro area and the United States.

Fueled by the positive economic outlook, the global automotive industry started the 2017 in a positive note, with vehicles sales in the first two months of the year at 14.2 million, up a robust 4.1% from the previous year.
