Europe best selling cars. The top 100 in the 2018

Europe best selling cars Volkswagen-Golf_GTI_Clubsport_S-2017

Europe best selling cars ranking year to date 2018 within 44 markets in the continent, from Portugal to Russia. The market is marginally (+1.8%) positive despite up and down of previous months due to the WLTP introduction. Nissan Qasqhai is again the best SUV.

Economic Environment

Eurozone economy lost momentum in the third quarter, with GDP growth recording the worst result in over four years. Although a breakdown by components has not been released yet, sluggish private consumption as higher oil prices dented households’ purchasing power and weak industrial activity, partly due to one-off factors which held back automobile production, likely drove the result.

While the economy is expected to bounce back somewhat in the fourth quarter, the economy has clearly entered a lower cruising speed this year. Available data for Q4 suggests that activity remained downbeat, with economic sentiment and the composite PMI both sliding in October.

Market Trend

Following the strong recovery scored in the previous years, in the 2018 the European light vehicles market is stable, as total. Indeed, despite the introduction of the new WLTP in September 1st has pushed strong rebates and self-registrations in July/August with a huge fall in September, the market figures year to date are up 1.8% with 13 million sales.

October ended with sales at 1.091.359 (-6.3%) and a full year projection at 15.383.245 (+2%).

Best Sellers

As far as the monthly update regarding the best selling cars ranking within the entire continents (44 markets from Portugal to those in the East, like Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Moldova) year to date 2018 is dominated again – for the 44th year in a string – by the Volkswagen Golf, which has already a huge icon on all others anticipating the final yearly ranking.

Indeed so far the Volkswagen Golf sales have been 430.591 (-5.5%)

In second place the Volkswagen Polo with 314.714 (+3%). 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 third place the Renault Clio with 309.286 units (+1.5%). Launched in the 1990, actually is in the fourth generation, launched in 2012.

In fourth place the Volkswagen Tiguan with 250.953 (+9.6%) -again the best SUV – followed by the Nissan Qashqai with 242.062 (-1.8%), the Ford Fiesta with 241.025 (+6.4%) and the Skoda Octavia with 225.850 (+1.4%).

In eight place the Peugeot 208 with 202.134 (-2.5%) followed by the Citroen C3 with 190.992 (+2.3%) and in 10th place Ford Focus with 190.176 (-10.6%)

After decades there is not any Opel within the Top 10, first effect of new policy applied by P.S.A. after the brand acquisition. The first Opel ranks 11th and is the Corsa. However, Fiat is without this status since time and the best Italian model in Europe is the 500, only 23rd.
