European car sales analysis September 2020 – models

After looking at the manufacturers and brands rankings for September, let’s take a deeper look at car sales by model in Europe. If the Volkswagen Golf re-established itself last month as Europe’s dominant best selling car after being outsold by the Renault Clio in May and June, it’s the Opel/Vauxhall Corsa that’s closing in on the Golf’s leadership by 2,300 sales while outselling the Clio. Don’t expect this to become the new picking order anytime soon, as the Corsa traditionally benefits from a relatively strong UK market in September. In fact, the Corsa was in 2nd place in 2019 as well. Renault places 2 models in the top-4 with the Captur up 21.2% to reclaim the title of Europe’s best selling crossover which the Peugeot 2008 took in August. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class is up to 5th place ahead of 4 subcompact cars: the Peugeot 208, Ford Fiesta, Dacia Sandero and Volkswagen Polo sell within 1,300 units of each other, wehre the Fiesta is the only one losing sales on last year while the other three grow by 26% or more. The Ford Puma jumps 6 places on its record ranking of last month to enter the top-10 for the first time, making it the #2 crossover in Europe, just ahead of the Peugeot 2008 in 12th place and the Nissan Qashqai in 17th place. The Volkswagen Tiguan is down into 19th place and Fiat places both of its minicars in the top-15 since May 2018. The Tesla Model 3 is up to #20 and best selling midsized sedan ahead of the Volkswagen Passat at #43.

We see record sales for the Renault Zoe (#35, +207.9%), Mazda CX-30 (#88, +155.3%), Suzuki Ignis (#80, +143.7%), Kia Niro (#34, +96.9%), Volvo XC40 (#25, +56.9%), Hyundai Kona (#22, +42%) and Mercedes-Benz GLA (#46, +9.9%). Other notable performers are the Nissan Juke (#49, +268.5%), BMW 2-Series Coupe & Convertible (#84, +73.4%), Seat Leon (#26, +72.8%), Audi Q3 (#42, +69.1%), BMW 1-Series (#29, +61.9%), Suzuki Vitara (#81, +58.2%) and Suzuki Swift (#55, +54.5%)

Year-to-date, the Opel/Vauxhall Corsa leapfrogs its stablemate Peugeot 208 for 3rd place. The Volkswagen T-Roc drops 3 places to the Sandero, Fiesta and A-Class, and the BMW 3-Series drops 2 places to the Volkswagen T-Cross and Hyundai Kona. The Volkswagen Passat also loses 2 places to the Mini and Seat Leon while the Ford Puma jumps 3 places to #29.

Newcomers

Best selling newcomers (<12 months) are the Volkswagen ID.3 at #48 in its very first month of sales, ahead of the Kia Xceed down 5 places to #94 and Mercedes-Benz GLB up to #107. The Polestar 2 is up 45 places to #135, ahead of the Mazda MX-30 at #162 just ahead of the Land Rover Defender, up 27 to #174. The Toyota Proace City Verso is down 23 places to #190. The Opel/Vauxhall Zafira Life is stable at #207, while the Honda e is up 19 places to #237 and the Ford Explorer is down 17 places to #243. We welcome the Citroën C4 back to the ranking, as well as the Suzuki Across, which is a rebadged version of the Toyota RAV4 hybrid.

  1. I really wish CSB would do something about the readability of the website. Considering the overall layout, including the imo terrible font and the predominance of the ads, it’s clear CSB aims at people who use their smartphone when visiting CSB.

    Content-wise, what happened to the news stories? Or the look-a-like articles? Can’t say CSB has improved after becoming part of A07 Online Media.

  2. 46.000 units of the Corsa & 208 in a single month.
    Tavares has cracked the code of making huge amounts of profit with B segment models.

      1. That’s what I am saying. One model strong in the huge markets UK and Germany, the other elsewhere. Underneath the same, but a badge makes all the difference to traditional folks.

      2. Opel was interchangeable with Buick, Chevrolet, Holden and even Saab under the GM belt and not making any profit so I don’t see why they were supposed to be ‘real German’ back then.

        Like RickM stated, it’s better to have technically identical models that can perform next to each other. The Corsa and 208 are two different cars and even offer a different ride according to tests.

      3. But most of the Opel cars under GM were developed in Germany, nowadays all Opels are just french rebadged cars.

    1. Despite October sales in France down 9,5%, the 208 (9.700 ex) and Corsa (2.450 ex) continued their surge. Did I already mention Tavares cracked the B-segment code? 😉

      Let’s see what FIAT Europe will add to the table when Stellantis announces its 14 brand line-up. A FIAT Uno on the bases of 208/Corsa is quite likely.

      1. I’m also curious. Wouldn’t be surprised if Stellantis positions Fiat as a budget brand in the long run with the 500 range as a subsidiary. Sort of PSA’s answer to Renault’s major success Dacia.

  3. I think the model3 remark is a bit suggestive. True in september, but in The Netherlands only because deliveries peak every 3 months (shipping). Year to date it is behind and not improving

  4. As to badge aficionada’s a.k.a. “I only lease German wheels so my colleagues perceive me as a class act”: Imagine an Espace with a Benz logo, a Talisman with that of a Bimmer. Sales would shoot up 20 fold.

    1. That’s why I like the American market which is not affected by leasing companies. Americans still have a lot of consumer freedom. The average American values the product, not so much intangible features like ‘image’.

      Genesis, Infiniti, Acura and of course Lexus are much appreciated in the US and their cars are able to become segment leaders. Unthinkable in Europe. Heck, European journalists think it’s special when a non-German but still European car outperforms all its competitors.

  5. Opel Corsa sales for October totalled 17,625 alone from Germany, UK, Italy, France & Spain. Fantastic results. Just behind the Golf sitting at 20,456 from these countries in October.

    1. Not impressive at all, because 2020 is the Kamiq’s first full year.

      I could not care less about the Kamiq. One of the most redundant Skoda models right now. The Karoq and Kodiaq offer more value for a little bit more money.
