    Within 5 years Toyota stills the world best selling cars manufacturing followed by General Motors, Ford, Hyundai and a Chinese brand. You´ll see.

    Will Chevrolet with the Onix, Cobalt and Spin dethrone VW of the argentinian market after so many years, or the Up! and Gol restyling are enough to stop the threat?

    Will Renault Clio be the best selling car in Europe in 2013?
    Will Opel/Vauxhall Adam outsell Mini in the UK?

    The dog could get a job driving tourist buses here in Cairns. He would probably make the roads that little bit safer if he did.

    25th 2012 question: None of them are successful, the only “french” SUV to succeed is the Renault/Dacia Duster;

    2013 questions:

    1 – Only in borderline markets like Bulgaria;
    2 – No, but they will be close;
    5 – BYD is coming strong, so for them a successful 2013 wouldn’t be a surprise;
    7 – Mokka: Yes. Adam: No, despite its cheeky looks, it’s too expensive and has out-of-date engines;
    9 – It looks to be a matter of time;
    10 – No, but it will be a major player;
    12 – No;
    13 – Yes, but only if the Focus keeps their momentum in China and the Corolla doesn’t rebound;
    16 – No, the Golf has Europe well guarded and it can even increase their market share by the year end;
    17 – Stagnation would be already good news;
    18 – The 1.000.000 € question;
    21 – Yes;
    23 – Oh yeah!
    24 – Yes for the Captur, maybe for the 2008;
    25 – Yes;
    27 – If they are smart, then yes. But it will depend on the success of the C-Elysée;
    28 – If there’s justice in the world, definitely;
    29 & 30 – Probably;
    32 – At least it would make sense;
    33 – They will help, but cannot support Fiat’s sales on their own. Now in Brazil and US…
    35 – One thing is for certain: Renault’s efforts to be a global player are paying off, now if they only could stop losing market share in Europe…
    36 – Definitely;
    37 – The Rapid sales aren’t taking off, so a big “maybe” here;
    40 – Yes, and i would bet on BYD to be a surprise here;
    41 – Maybe, Yes, Probably.
    42 – Only if it can fight VW Group rise;
    46 – That would be a smart move indeed, kind like a japanese Fiat 500;
    48 – Maybe its still too early, but they will make it there, there’s no doubt about it;
    50 – China.
