The Renault Clio keeps the lead with a comfortable margin and 1,444 sales for a 5.8% market share, up a massive 28% on the same week last year.

    Miguel :@Tengil …You think but the majority don´t! you are a lost case!

    There is no car in the world, which is bought by the majority. ;)

    Design is a question of taste and everybody has his own taste and should respect the taste of somebody else – even if it is different. ;)

    We should be lucky to have different carmakers building cars for different peope with different taste. Anything else would be boring. ;)

    Miguel :@Rodo I agree with you 100%!!! VW is getting quite boring and hope sales down this year. The German market absorves more than 50% of vw world sales!

    Sorry Miguel, but the german market is not that big. VW sold 686.772 cars in Germany in 2011, but the VW-group sold more than 8 million cars worldwide.
