You can see my original World 2011 Top 35 article here (note some figures have changed since)
The top of the ranking is unscathed up to #18 compared to my last update, with the Toyota Corolla leading with 1,141,709 sales, followed by the Ford Focus at 882,551 units, the VW Golf at 864,462, the VW Polo at 788,789, Ford Fiesta at 767,465, Hyundai Elantra at 751,967 and Wuling Sunshine at 731,689. The Chevrolet Cruze, Ford F-Series and VW Jetta complete the Top 10.
The Hyundai Accent is now #19 with 541,519 sales followed by the best-selling SUV in the world the Honda CR-V at an estimated 530,000 units. The Toyota Hilux, #1 in 34 countries, is still #22, while the Hyundai Tucson/ix35 now appears at #28 with 420,649 sales. Excellent showing of the Suzuki Swift/Dzire at #31 with 399,446 units.
BMW 3 Series
The BMW 3 Series is the best-selling luxury model at #36 and 384,464 sales and should improve vastly in 2012 thanks to the new generation. The Mercedes C-Class is #41, the BMW 5 Series #46 and the Audi A4 #48. Best year ever for the Nissan Qashqai at #38 and 382,741 units. With the Peugeot 207 at the end of its career at #57, the 24 year-old Peugeot 405/Pars produced in Iran should be the brand’s best-seller this year at #52 and an estimated 306,000 sales!
Fiat’s top seller is the South American Uno at #54 with 297,234 units, above the Punto at #58 and the Palio at #63. Dacia manages to place its 3 models within the worldwide Top 100 with the Logan at #45, the Sandero at #59 and the Duster at #99, compared to only two Renault models: the Clio at #26 and the Megane at #60! Notice also the Nissan Juke above 215,000 units at #79, the FAW Xiali N3/N5 at #83 with an estimated 207,000 sales and the BYD F3 at #92 with an estimated 190,000 units.
