    Very interesting movements – in the ranking that is.

    Peugeot will wish homeland France would embrace the 5008 and 3008 in similar fashion.
    Laguna out of nowhere (formally a 4800% rise ;-))
    A Juke challenging the Golf for #1, the Lexus RX at #33 outselling a Yarsi and Polo!
    Pretty hilarious.
