Now that we have gone through the worldwide February ranking in detail, the year-to-date updates designed to extract longer-term trends are back! Like in 2012 the Toyota Corolla takes the lead over the Ford Focus, but just: 164,463 sales vs. 161,998… Note the Corolla figure includes the 9th, 10th and 11th generations but not the Corolla hatch/Auris while the Focus figure includes the 2nd and 3rd generation, both in hatch, sedan and station wagon formats. The Hyundai Elantra is also faithful to its 2012 third position over the period thanks to 141,061 units sold while the Ford F-Series is up one spot to #4 and the VW Passat up 2 to #5.

Renault Symbol 2013The Renault Clio/Symbol is #26 worldwide so far in 2013 vs. #33 in 2012.

Boosted by an out-of-this-world third place in February, the Wuling Hongguang is now #6 year-to-date in 2013 with 111,861 sales which is already one third of its total sales for 2012 when it ranked #57 worldwide… The VW Polo/Vento is up 3 ranks compared to 2012 at #8, the VW Jetta and Suzuki Swift/DZire are both up 6 to #13 and #14 respectively, the VW Lavida is up a whopping 61 spots to #20 solely thanks to its #1 passenger car ranking in China, the Chevrolet Silverado is up 7 to #21, Nissan Sentra/Sylphy/Pulsar/Tsuru up 30 to #25 and the Renault Clio/Symbol is up 7 to #26.
