1978 marks the 6th consecutive year the Fiat 127 dominates the sales charts in Europe thanks to 409,000 units, making it the most popular Fiat ever in Europe, given as far as I know the Uno never managed to rank #1 and the Punto only did so once, in 1997. The only other candidates could be the Fiat 500 and 600 in the sixties, depending on how they fared against the Volkswagen Beetle. However this year the battle was intense: the VW Golf is only a few thousands units behind whole the Renault 5 is also very close at #3.
