Launched in late 1988, the Renault 19 is an instant hit with Spanish consumers, and the model enjoys even greater success in Spain than it does in France, ranking #1 in the country in 1989 with 89,512 sales and 8.5% share, only 800 units above the Opel Kadett, #2 at 88,713 units.
The Seat Ibiza ranks 3rd with 71,958 sales and 6.9%, followed by the Renault Supercinq at 63,387 units and 6% and the Ford Fiesta at 61,612 sales and 5.9%. Notice the Renault 21 at #9, the Ford Orion at #10, the Seat Malaga at #17, the Seat Marbella at #19. Curiosities: the Renault 4 is still at a respectable #27 at 0.7% share and the Trabant ranks 54th with 1,197 sales and 0.1% of the Spanish market.
