Germany. Best selling cars ranking in 2020

Germany best selling cars

Germany best selling cars ranking in 2020 is led for the 45th year in a row by the Volkswagen Golf, despite registering a worrying trend (-19.2%). The best performances are scored by the Volkswagen Passat and the BMW 3 Series, landing respectively in 3rd and 7th place.

The largest European car market dominator, the Volkswagen Golf is signing the 45th consecutive year on top, while the eight generation has been just presented. However, the growth of SUV segment reduced the space for hatch versions and the Golf market share is crumbling at 5.1%.

Despite declining 2.6% from the previous year, the Volkswagen Tiguan is currently managing to keep the second spot, ahead of the fast-growing Volkswagen Passat, which has aggressively reached the podium at 2.5%.

The Ford Focus takes the 4th place, surging 16.8%, followed by a disappointing (-30.1%) Volkswagen Polo and the Audi A4.

However, the best performing Top 10 model is the BMW 3 Series, booming 87.9% and landing in 7th position.
