    Referring to No 19, Proton have used the last generation Honda Accord as Proton Perdana. Well, no merger was involved.

    Will Renault take over Opel in Europe and become 3rd bestselling brand in Europe ?
    Will Megane seals keep falling ?
    Will Twingo III take over VW UP! and again become bestselling small car ?
    Will be Nissan Qashqai II 2nd bestselling car in its class (behind Golf).
    Will small SUVs keep their momentum or will their sale fall.

    @Bryan In China a brand don’t need to have an image to succeed. All the manufacturers built themselves their image in few years. The product planning is good, the models begin to be produced locally, the concessions are refined, the communication is present. A failure would be incomprehensible.

    @Matt It seems to me that Renault announced there is a few weeks that it would sell Lodgy in Indonesia. I’m pretty sure of that.

    I think 2014 will be great year, world´s auto market will grow, except Japan i think every major market will grow.

    This are most important questions for myself in 2014

    Will Hyundai/Kia overtake Renault/Nissan{without Lada }to take 4th place globally?

    Will Toyota stay No.1 globally?

    Will French automakers resume their Iran operations?

    How big will be Japan´s fall in sales after new tax?

    Will BMW stay ahead of Audi as No.1 premium brand?

    Will India, Russia, Brazil rebound after decline in sales this year?

    Will Indonesia and Africa expand finally quicker?

    Will Europe{EU28+EFTA PC+LCV} top 14 million mark ?

    Will chinese native brands lost further market share to global foreign brands?

    Will the DS Citroen line be a success or a big flop? I bet in a big flop. Because they have no brand image.

    Will Peugeot/Citroen survive? Yes, PSA is one of the most important auto manufacteurs in the World, and the second in Europe, their engines/technology are used by almost all the biggest auto manufacteurs in the World, so i think they will succeed, they make very good mid-range cars up to 35k€ in Europe.

    The new Nissan Qashqai II will be a big success and perhaps broke into the European Top 5 in some months;

    The new Skoda Octavia will be a huge success as well as the new Audi A3;

    GM Europe/Opel/Vauxhall will survive only because China (Buick) but their cars are worthless and a shame for the German auto industry (are they really German or American?);

    The 2008 will surprass the 208;

    Golf will continue to dominate the European market by far;

    These are some of my questions/bets for 2014.
