Top Tens Europe : 2017 / The Big Six

The Lancia Ypsilon. Now only sold in Italy

When perusing the lists below, support for local brands is so obvious, apart from the UK which doesn't have any mainstream marques. Dark blue is French brands and voilà, the Top 10 in France is smothered with that hue. Germany is yellow and much the same thing. The rest aren't so much that way.

The UK sort of adopted the US brands Ford and Vauxhall, with the latter now part of the PSA Group. The Qashqai is designed and built in the UK and maybe it should be at the top.
