* Click on title for the Top 160 best-selling models and Top 55 All-brands ranking! *
LAST UPDATE: Now with all models selling over 100 units this month. .
Thanks to Autoblog Español and STAC I can now share with you more detail about the French October 2012 models ranking, all the official Clio generations sales as well as the 206/207, C3/C4/Picasso splits. The Clio 3 is at 6,360 sales and 3.9% vs. 4,721 and 2.9% for the Clio 4 and 1,389 and 0.9% for the Clio Campus. The C4 is slightly lower than my estimates and ranks #8 while the C3 is slightly higher but stays #3 with 6,187 units and 3.9%. The Peugeot 206+ now sells more than the 207 at 1,873 units and #21 vs. 1,052 and #42. This will change now that the 207 has become the 207+ and the 206+ will see its production stop.
