world-best-selling-small-cars Volkswagen-Polo_UK-Version-2018

World Best Selling Small Cars in the first half of the 2018 was dominated again by the Volkswagen Polo reinforced by the launch of the last generation and now distributed in Latin America as well. In second place th Renault Clio.

Definition

We classify as “Small Cars” compact vehicles with a length between 3.50 and 4.10 mm. In North America this segment is called sub-compact car (according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a passenger car not exceeding 165 inches (4,191 mm) in length, but larger than a microcar) while in Europe the segment equates roughly B-segment. While traditionally the segment was composed by vehicles hatchback or sedan, in recent evolution new models have been produced within the 4.10 mm with a MPV (Multi Purpose vehicles) shape and even with a SUV look. While we are able to sub-segment the market both by size and by body, for the scope of this report, we include in “Small Cars” segment just sedan and hatch models, considering we have a report dedicated to SUVs and MPVs.
