Europe best selling cars. The top 100

Europe best selling cars

Europe best selling cars ranking in September within 44 markets in the continent, from Portugal to Russia. The Volkswagen Golf is on top, followed by the Renault Clio and the Volkswagen Polo. The Opel Corsa jumped in 5th position, while stunning performances were scored by the Ford Focus and the Nissan Qashqai.

Economic Environment

Eurozone economic growth shifted into a lower gear in the second quarter. An adverse external environment caused exports to flatline, while household spending lost momentum amid downbeat confidence and diminishing returns to job gains.

Data for Q3 suggests that the economy remains stuck in a soft patch and continues to be defined by divergent dynamics in the export-oriented manufacturing sector and the services sector. Industrial production recorded its fourth drop in five months in July and the manufacturing PMI remained in contractionary territory in August, underscoring the sector’s persistent weakness.

Best Sellers

As far as the best selling cars ranking within the entire continents (44 markets from Portugal to those in the East, like Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Moldova) is currently dominated – for the 44th year in a string – by the Volkswagen Golf.

Indeed, the Volkswagen Golf is the market leader with 346.259 (-12%) sales.

In second place the Renault Clio with 273.233 units (-4.7%). Launched in the 1990, actually is in the fourth generation, launched in 2012.

In third place the Volkswagen Polo with 205.904 (-14.2%). With more than 14 million units sold, it is one of the world’s most successful compact cars ever and actually the best seller. The sixth generation was launched in late 2017, with new exterior design, noticeably more spacious interior that has also been redesigned down to the last detail, new cockpit layout structured for the digital world, efficient TSI (petrol), TGI (natural gas) and TDI (diesel) engines as well as an array of assistance systems which previously was only familiar in larger Volkswagen cars.

In fourth place the Volkswagen Tiguan – up 1 spot – with 196.465 (-5.2%) followed by the Opel Corsa with 189.010 (+8.2%), the Citroen C3 with 183.505 (+1.7%) and the Ford Focus with 182.171 (+12.6%).

In eight place the Ford Fiesta with 181.643 (-16.8%) followed by the Dacia Sandero with 179.005 (+5.3%) and in 10th place Nissan Qashqai with 178.658 (-13.7%).

The first Fiat vehicle in the ranking is the Panda, currently taking the 19th position.
