Top 10 Models/Brands Belgium: 1987

VW Golf

Many of the model names below are not used in 2013. For those that remember them, no doubt it brings back nostalgic feelings. So what has changed?

Back in '87 the three French brands did well, but today even better. Renault is now 2nd, Peugeot 3rd and Citroen 4th. US brands were stronger then but today Opel is 5th and Ford 9th.

Only one German premium brand made the list here, but in 2013 BMW is 6th, Audi 7th and MB 8th. Belgians are much more affluent today it seems. Toyota and Nissan are 11th and 12th now, but back then 6th and 8th. Hyundai has now squeaked in at 10th, but in 87' was well down on that (not sure of the exact figure).
