The Peugeot 206 ranked #1 in Belgium from 2002 to 2005

In 2002 the Peugeot 206 breaks at least 13 years of Golf domination and stays on top for 4 consecutive years before giving up its throne to the Opel Astra in 2006. The Peugeot 207 takes the relay for two years in 2007 and 2008, then the Ford Fiesta manages to grab the pole position in Belgium for the first time in the nameplate’s 30 years career. Since 2010 the VW Golf is back to the #1 spot.

The BMW 3 Series ranked #4 in Belgium in 2007 and 2008, then #2 in 2014.

Witness also the success of the BMW 3 Series, making its way up the ranking all through the period to hit an outstanding 2nd place in 2014… the Renault Megane ranking #2 in 1998 and 2011… the Peugeot 307 #2 from 2003 to 2005… the Opel Kadett #2 in 1989… the Toyota Corolla #5 in 1989 and the Ford Mondeo directly #4 in 1994 for its first full year of sales in the country.
