For Norway in the eighties I only have access to a Top 25 models ranking for the entire decade, not year by year. If you have more detailed information please make sure to get in touch by commenting on this article! At this little game the VW Golf wins with an overall share of 4.9% and is followed by the Ford Sierra and Volvo 240 Series both at 4.3%. The Mazda 626 manages an outstanding 4th place with 4% share ahead of its little sister the Mazda 323 at 3.9%.
The Japanese are now here in force in Norway: there are 11 of them in the eighties’ Top 25, with the Toyota Carina (#9), Corolla (#11), Mazda 929 (#12), Toyota Camry (#14) and Nissan Sunnny (#17) also very popular. Notice also the Opel Ascona at #6, the Ford Escort at #7 and Opel Kadett at #8.
