    Claro, mas contabilizar duas gerações distintas também acho injusto, mas contabilizar Hatch e Sedan separadamente acho estranho! E era isso ao que me referia! Concordo plenamente com você, quando duas gerações são contabilizadas juntas! @Richard

    Rapaz, às vezes não me parece muito justo em alguns momentos. Como pode contabilizar o novo e o antigo Gol e o novo e antigo Uno e o novo e antigo Fiesta como um só carro?, quando custam valores diferentes? Aliás, coisa típica de Brasil isso, vender duas gerações ao mesmo tempo. Pode parecer melhor de identificar o tipo de carro, contabilizar por wagon, sedan, etc, mas às vezes é esquisito.@Luis

    Sou brasileiro e posso responder a pergunta acima! Nós, aqui no Brasil, temos diversas categorias, de Hatch, Sedan, Wagon e suas vendas são divididas por aqui assim, não são como na Europa, que existe o confuso sistema de segmento A, B, C, aqui temos Hatchs, Sedans, SUVs, Wagons! Pra mim é muito melhor assim que isso de contabilizar tudo junto!

    Sonico If VW did not split the Golf and Jetta it would be by far the worlds best selling car

    That’s why I don’t like FIAT. They should have been investing in the 500 to make it more popular, and it was supposed to have been figured in this list. The problem, it seems, is that the other cars, Siena, Palio and Uno, are the ones FIAT is, by now, really willing to work more upon. See, how can such a car, the 500, be a huge success in other countries and here, is put aside? How come? It’s money. They (seem) to make much more profit out of those craps I mentioned. That’s why the 500′s sales are timid. I say that because people here are (shamely) willing to buy a smart fourtwo (for instance) for 50 % more money (the price of a Focus/Corolla/Cruze/Civic!)! How come?!@Emi Ang

    FIAT 500 is a different story. It is FIAT at its best, and that’s where I see a lot of identity and originality. Everything in this car is so positive to me, and FIAT did it so right. I would love to ride a 500 and would be happy if I could buy one for my wife. They should invest more in this car and make it cheaper (or at least hold its price for 2 or 3 years).@Emi Ang

    After full merge (takeover) with Chrysler we will talk about culture. Until that I agree Brazil is Fiats salvation.

    Brazil is the salvation of FIAT, otherwise it could be disappearing right now, but don’t fool yourself about all this investment, because its sales won’t increase at the same rate of its investment. With the new competition and the renewing of the old brands, the only thing that will hold FIAT in a high position is its aftersales and number of dealers. But a car is not only all about dealers and aftersales, but about culture as well, and that’s where FIAT still fails (unless we talk about poor culture or culturing the poor).@MOMO

    Fiat has plan so maintain no1 car producer and seller in Brazil. They are investing a lot of money in their plants in Brazil, and they have plans to open some new plants. In next three Italians will invest 7,5 billion dollars, and no doubt it will pay off. They are introducing new products like Jeep (great May results), and some Alfa Romeos. Also Fiat Industrial has big plans for South America, opening two new CNH Global (New Holland) plants in Argentina.

    Also, I would like to mention great success of Brazilian car market in general. In next 10 years it will be Worlds no3 market, no doubt.

    Yes! Good point, Sonico. They split sedans and wagons, and I could understand why, because even though are basically the same car, they’re fit in different categories. But there is another interesting thing. They don’t split figures of old versions. For example, there are two generations of Gol, Uno and Fiesta being accounted as one (there are other examples), and that seems unfair to me. OK, they’re the same car, but the old version costs much less, thus selling to what would be a buyer of a different category car, and this helps disguising the real figure of the sales.

    I will never get why Brazilian split the figures (into Hatch and Wagon, for example) even if the model is the same… it makes the picture change a bit.

    For example, if we combined the Etios Sedan and Hatch, the total is 5,493 which would place it #15, which is much more relevant; same goes for the Chevrolet Cruze, with a total 3,665 which means #24, or the Hyundai HB20 which would be in Top 5 were its sales not split.
