2018 Europe Auto Sales Figures – By Model (All Vehicle Ranked)
2018 European Vehicle Sales Rankings – Every Vehicle Ranked By Sales Volume
After looking at 2018 European car sales by manufacturer and brand, let’s take a deeper look into how individual models sold last year. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Volkswagen Golf is still the dominant leader in Europe, for the 11th consecutive year. However, the Golf was the biggest loser in the top-18 with a loss of 7.6%, which translates to roughly 37,000 fewer sales.
Still, the #2 Renault Clio is more than 116,000 sales behind, followed by the Volkswagen Polo, the biggest winner in the top-10 with a gain of 8.9%. The Ford Fiesta makes it three subcompact cars in a top-4 which is exactly the same as last year. The Volkswagen Tiguan takes over from the Nissan Qashqai as Europe’s best selling crossover in 5th place as the latter ends its four-year streak of year-over-year gains. The Opel/Vauxhall Corsa is down to the bottom end of the top-10 with the Toyota Yaris and Dacia Sandero not far behind. Both the Yaris and the Sandero jump 4 places, allowing the former to enter the top-10 with the latter on its tail. The Renault Captur (#12, -0.1%) sees stable sales despite being due for replacement and the continued arrival of new models to the small crossover segment. The Citroën C3 (#13, +1.8%) tops the 200,000 sales mark for the second consecutive year, while the Peugeot 3008 (#14, +20.2%) is above that figure for the first time ever. In contrast, the Ford Focus (#15, -6.2%) drops below 200,000 sales for the first time since the launch of its first generation back in 1998.
