Thanks to Bart from left-lane.com, I can give you the European Top 150 models for now, more data will follow shortly. Beyond the Top 10, we learn that the Audi A3 is eagerly waiting its turn to break in at #11 with 15,855 sales, up 44% year-on-year, the VW Tiguan (#15) and Renault Megane (#16) shoot a little above their year-to-date level, but most interestingly both the Renault Captur at #18 with 12,776 sales and the Peugeot 2008 at #23 and 11,305 units are starting to make well-rounded waves inside the ranking. Who else here think one of them (both?) will break into the monthly European Top 10 next year? Because I do.
The Toyota Auris benefits fully from the new generation and especially its hybrid and station wagon variants to gain a mammoth 174% year-on-year this month to #21 vs. #26 year-to-date, the Mercedes A-Class is up 66% to #24, the Peugeot 308 is starting to climb the ladder now the 2nd generation is becoming available across the continent: up 30% to #26 vs. #38 year-to-date, the Dacia Sandero up 59% to #29, Citroen C4 Picasso up 52% to #32 vs. #50, Seat Leon up 65% to #42 and Opel Insignia up 47% to #43.
Outside the Top 50, let’s salute the Fiat 500L up 183% to #52, Skoda Yeti up 20% to #61, Ford B-Max up 34% to #65, Toyota RAV4 up 77% to #78 vs. #94 year-to-date, Honda CR-V up 28% to #81 vs. #92, Nissan Note up 79% to #88, Mazda3 up 83% to #109, Mazda6 up 73% to #129, Kia Carens up to #130 and the BMW 4 Series breaking into the European Top 150 for the first time at #146.
