Best Selling Cars Blog wishes you a Happy New Year 2012!

Lada Granta

All my best wishes for this new year, may it bring you all you have ever wanted! A very exciting year ahead, with a lot of important new launches that are bound to reshuffle the models rankings of many countries...

For those of you that were checking this blog out a year ago, you may remember I made a list of my most anticipated questions about world car sales for 2011... You will find the responses below the jump as well as my most anticipated questions for 2012!

Starting with:

Will the Lada Granta dominate Russia?

Will the VW Up! break into the German, European Top 10?

Which model will be the best-seller in the world's biggest market - China?

Will Baojun place a model in the Chinese Top 20?

Peugeot 208

Will the Peugeot 208 do better than the Peugeot 207? 206? 205?

Will the new Fiat Palio threaten the VW Gol in Brazil?

Will a foreign model (the VW Golf?) lead British sales at year-end for the first time in history?

Will the Hyundai Eon fight the Maruti Alto for India's pole position?

Fiat Panda

Will the new Fiat Panda end the Fiat Punto's 18-year domination in Italy?

Will a Chinese export manage to break into the Top 10 of a sizeable market?

    Absolutely great site Matt, thanks for all the hard work and effort you have put into this. I’m a daily visitor, my interests being mostly Skoda cars sales around the world, in the UK, Europe etc. I sell car brochures on ebay and every opportunity I get, I direct customers here as it is so addictive for us car enthusiasts!

    Hi Matt,

    I wrong?

    Otherwise my turn:

    The Renault Latitude will ever No. 1 in the Segment E in France?

    Will the Skoda Superb exceed the Renault Latitude in France?

    Will the Renault Fluence continues to plunge in France and Europe?

    Daihatsu reascend in Germany and in some countries?

    The Lancia Ypsilon will prick her third place for the Italian market?

    The Citroën C3 Aircross will pique by the Renault Duster for the South American market?

    The Skoda Octavia is still No. 1 in Finland?

    The SUV cousins ​​of PSA, the C4 Aircross and the 4008 will do better than the Renault Koleos?

    sorry for spelling errors.

    All my best wishes for this new year!

    Here are some answers to your questions (in my opinion):

    VW UP! will not be in the top 10 European or German!!!!
    it will difficult because of her cousins ​​Seat Mii and Skoda Citigo !

    Yes the 208 will surely better than the 207. But it will not better than the 205 and 206. in my opinion.

    For the Skoda Rapid, no I’m not your opinion!

    If you talk about future skoda Compact (hatchback, sedan and Combi), it surely sell better than the Octavia and Fabia … in 2013.

    For the DS5, I think it will not sell well ….

    For the Dacia Duster, no I do not think the Duster will be on the podium in France!!
    You see, the Logan plunges since the arrival of the Sandero, the Sandero plunges very seriously since the arrival of the Duster!
    If a new MPV will arrives, I do not think at all that the Duster will on podium!!

    Will the Hyundai i30 become a real contender in the C segment? Say, making it in the top 5? Will the Kia Rio break into the top 10 in the B segment? How will Lancias new models be received? Will they manage to sell the Ypsilon outside of Italy? How will the Chevy Volt and Opel Ampera do in Europe? Will electric cars start selling in significant numbers?

    And then in 2013 ( :) ) who will win these fights: Audi A3 x BMW 1er x Mercedes A-klass, and one of the longest of all, Peugeot vs Renault, the 208 vs Clio IV.

    Happy new year everyone.
