Thanks to Chris, author of British Leyland Chronicles, and via Andrew I am now able to share with you the best-selling models in Ireland in 1974, nearly 20 years prior to the previous oldest data for Ireland which was 1993. At the time the Ford Escort was the best-seller… And thanks to STAC there is a complete list of Irish Historical Data for the last 20 years. The Opel Astra was king of Ireland in 1993 and 1994, then got passed by the Ford Fiesta in 1996 before the Fiat Punto took control from 1998 to 2000.
The Ford Focus then started a decade-long domination, topping the Irish models ranking from 2001 to 2012, only interrupted twice: by the Toyota Corolla in 2004 and the Renault Megane in 2010… Finally the VW Golf took the lead for the very first time in 2013, stays on top for three years before being overthrown by the Hyundai Tucson in 2016 and 2017 the very first Korean model to top Irish sales.
