Its styling is forgettable to the point that…. wait, what car are we talking about? Oh, right, the 2011 Volkswagen Jetta is quite boring to look at, but that’s not going to stop the Jetta from becoming one of America’s most popular cars in the next year. As America’s most popular European car in November 2010, the Jetta uses value in a way no Volkswagen has in years – unless you want to count the Phaeton.
So what does the Jetta’s popularity say about the significantly more expensive BMW 3-Series? Loved by thousands of consumers who have just a little more expendable cash than the buyers of mainstream sedans (or more desire to spend what money they have on a car), the 3-Series is America’s best-selling luxury car and sells in great enough quantity to be one of America’s more popular models overall.
Further down the list, the Audi A5 stepped in to boot the Mercedes-Benz S-Class out of Europe’s Top 10. The Volkswagen Golf/GTI was also knocked down a peg from October 2010’s list of America’s best-selling cars from the continent. The numbers are below, so start perusing the list of America’s top selling European cars.
