Car sales in Italy continue to be relatively weak at 1,741,018 units in 1995. The Fiat Punto owns the market and improves its market share again to a mammoth 18.8% this year and 326,789 sales. The Fiat Cinquecento manages its way up to second place with 82,698 sales and 4.85 share, ahead of the Ford Fiesta at 71,034 and 4.1%.
The VW Golf confirms its success in the country by ranking 4th this year at 63,895 sales and 3.7% share, followed by its little sister the VW Polo, up a huge 209% and 20 spots on 1994 to 57,105 units and 3.3%.
