Most Popular Model: Europe 1996 - 2010


Comparing top ten models within Europe for the last 15 years shows that there was not much change. Only 16 models have that distinction. 4 models were there every year and all the cars listed below were there at least 10 times (see Col 2). Only 4 have been number one (see Col 3), the VW Golf 9 times. Col 4 shows the highest ranking reached, the GM Corsa only reaching 4th as its best spot.

Rk Model Col 2 Col 3 Col 4
1 VW Golf 15 9 1st
2 GM Astra 15 2 1st
3 Renault Clio 15 - 2nd
4 Ford Esc/Foc 15 - 3rd
5 GM Corsa 14 - 4th
6 Fiat Punto 13 1 1st
7 VW Polo 12 - 3rd
8 Peugeot 206/7 11 3 1st
9 Renault Megane 10 - 2nd
10 Ford Fiesta 10 - 2nd


Many of these car models will be popular for fleet buyers, which gives them sales consistency. The Ford Escort/Focus is the most even, for 15 years falling between 3rd and 8th.

In summary: Over 15 years, little has changed and I cannot see much changing in the top selling models in Europe for the future either.
