The VW Up! is now among the 20 most popular vehicles in Europe.

* See the Top 342 best-selling models and Top 60 all-brands by clicking on the title! *

Thanks to Lancia Lover and Autoweek.nl, I can now share with you the Top 342 (almost) all-models and Top 60 all-brands rankings for Europe in October 2012! The ranking is slightly different from the monthly Top 10 I published earlier because it includes Turkey. Below the VW Golf and Ford Fiesta, the Renault Clio (all generations) is now #3 at 24,923 sales, ahead of the VW Polo and Peugeot 208. The Fiat Panda still ranks within the Top 10 for the first time since last May at 17,335 units.

Audi A1

Outside the Top 10, the BMW 3 Series is up to #13 with 15,537 sales, the VW Tiguan brilliantly enters the Top 15 at 13,486 units, the Audi A4 is up to #18 but the most spectacular performance in Europe this month is the VW Up! entering the Top 20 thanks to 12,209 sales. Notice also the Mercedes B-Class up to #25, the Audi A1 up to an excellent #30, the Hyundai i30 up to #31, the Kia Sportage at #42, Kia Cee’d at #45, Mercedes A-Class at #49 and Audi Q3 at #50.

Dacia Lodgy

Below, let’s salute the encouraging performance of the Volvo V40 at #56 and 5,924 units, already the brand’s best-seller on the continent, the Audi Q5 at #63, the Range Rover Evoque now among the Top 80 best-selling vehicles in Europe at #79, the Dacia Lodgy at #82 with 4,074 sales, the Ford B-Max at #83 and 4,067 units, Skoda Citigo at #85 with 3,991 sales, Mercedes M-Class at #91 and Mercedes GLK at #100.

Mini Paceman

There are 7 new entrants in the ranking since our last European all-models ranking update in July: the Fiat 500L lands at #129 with 1,857 units, the Opel Mokka ranks #151 at 1,365 sales, the Skoda Rapid is #201 with 598 units, the Seat Toledo at #222, Mercedes Citan at #248, Ferrari F12 at #306 and Mini Paceman at #323.

Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

Other big gainers include the new generation VW Beetle at #104, the Seat Mii at #113, Citroen C4 Aircross at #130, Toyota Prius+ at #135, Mitsubishi Outlander at #139, Subaru XV at #146, Nissan Leaf at #183, Peugeot 4008 at #199, Toyota GT86 at #203 and Citroen C-Elysee at #233. Finally, the Bentley Continental GT/GTC is at #262 with 137 sales, the Lamborghini Aventador found 18 new homes, Rolls Royce sold 10 Phantom, 7 Maybach 57/62 exchanged hands, 3 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano and one lonely Bugatti Veyron.

    Steam :

    DAC1991 :When you combine the sales of the 206+, 207 en 208 (which is logical since Golf is VI + VII, Clio is III + IV etc.), Peugeot has the second best selling car in Europe. And only 3000 units below Volkswagen’s Golf!

    You are perfectly right.

    He’s not right because in October there were no Golf VII on the road It was introduced to german customers on Nov 10th.

    So he will be right in november … 😉
