Volkswagen still dominates the first and second place with the Golf and Polo, while the Ford Fiesta is knocked off the podium by the Renault Clio. The comeback of the facelifted Opel/Vauxhall Corsa keeps the Nissan Qashqai from equaling the crossover’s best-ever fifth place it achieved in February and March 2013.
The Toyota Yaris makes it two Europe-built Japanese models in the top-10, equaling the current generation’s best ranking it already achieved in March and September 2012. The success of the Yaris keeps Toyota just ahead of Nissan in the brands ranking, as the gap has closed from 13.500 units in January 2014 to just over 3.000 units this year. With the Micra almost 10.000 units behind the Yaris, a focus on improving its presence in the subcompact segment would help Nissan overtake Toyota as Europe’s best selling Asian brand.
Amazingly, after its record year of 2014, the Fiat 500 simply continues to improve its sales, and in no way cannibalizing Panda sales, as both small Fiats in #16 and #17 improve on last year.
In 39th place, the new generation Mini is the fastest growing model in the top-75, now taking a huge lead over its rival Audi A1 in #51.
The Citroën C4 Cactus goes from strength to strength, almost into the top-50 at #53 as the third-best selling Citroën, way ahead of the regular C4, which is down to #93.
The Volkswagen Golf Sportsvan is not only the best selling new arrival in #31, it also boldly takes control of the midsized MPV segment, outselling mainstays like the Citroën C4 Picasso (#37) and Renault Scenic (#44).
We welcome the Fiat 500X into the ranking in #129 with its first 2.071 sales, and also the Land Rover Discovery Sport in #209 with its first 414 sales. Both will climb up the ranking quickly in the upcoming months.
