Europe best selling cars. The top 100

Europe best selling cars

Europe best selling cars ranking in July 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 Citroen C3 gains 2 positions, while Dacia Sandero Jumps in 5th place.


Economic Environment

Eurozone economic growth is expected to have lost steam in the second quarter, after a healthy expansion at the start of the year. The latest data continues to point to a two-speed economy, with lingering weakness in the manufacturing sector contrasting relatively robust services sector activity.

The manufacturing PMI recorded its worst quarter since Q1 2013 in Q2, and a sharp downturn in industry confidence caused economic sentiment to fall to a near three-year low in June. However, the unemployment rate fell to a new over one-decade low in May and the services business activity index rose to a seven-month high in June.


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) in February was dominated again – for the 44th year in a string – by the Volkswagen Golf.

Indeed, the Volkswagen Golf is the market leader with 282.415 (-15.9%) sales.

In second place the Renault Clio with 227.620 units (-3.6%). Launched in the 1990, actually is in the fourth generation, launched in 2012.

In third place the Volkswagen Polo with 175.140 (-13.4%). 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 160.452 (-7.5%) followed by the Dacia Sandero with 150.154 (+7.1%), the Ford Focus with 149.357 (+7.5%) and the Citroen C3  with 149.344 (+2.5%).

In eight place the Peugeot 208 with 148.017 (-2.5%) followed by the Opel Corsa with 146.583 (+7%) and in 10th place Ford Fiesta with 146.445 (-19.5%).

The first Fiat vehicle in the ranking is the Panda, currently taking the 18th position.
