  1. But Renault reascend strong at the end of the week since this year…
    The Mégane and the 308 re exceed the Golf this month normally …

  2. Well, answering to Matgasnie and Tuga, curiously in France the Golf is cheaper than a 308 and some Mégane versions. On the other way, some French cars heritates from poor quality of the sixties and seventies. Dacia was a quite poor quality car in the eigthies, in fact was nothing else but a Renault 12. To avoid the marque bankropt, Renault bougth it and nowadays Dacias are Renaults rebadge and with the same mechanics.

  3. Attention aux immatriculations à la semaine. Renault a tendance à faire beaucoup d’immatriculations en fin de mois….

    1. Hi Tuga,
      In the August month-to-date ranking yes, that is correct and yes I agree: massive ouch! Given the Megane, facelifted 308 and C4 are all more recent than the Golf…
      Matt

  4. Bonjour,

    La C3/DS3 est toujours en progrès depuis son lancement! Elle est la plus vendue devant la Clio III et la 207.
    En version berline: la C3 est n°1.
