Belgium 2006: Opel Astra #1 in disputed year
* See the Top 20 best-selling models by clicking on the title! *
The replacement of the Peugeot 206 by the 207 this year throws the Belgian models ranking into disarray, with no car above 2.8% share and the 4 best selling models all within 1,000 sales (in a 526,000-unit market!). The Opel Astra is #1 with 14,950 sales and 2.8%, ahead of the Renault Clio (14,551), Peugeot 307 (14,116) and Opel Corsa (14,042).
The #1 position changed hands many time throughout the year: the Citroen C3 (5th overall) ranked #1 for the first time in the country in January, then the 206 came back up in February & March, the Renault Clio led the way in April & May before being passed by the Opel Astra, #1 until the end of the year.
