Peugeot 3008 LithuaniaLithuania was the only country in the world to crown the Peugeot 3008 in 2010.

Historical info spanning the past five decades is now available for Lithuania on BSCB. For the 19701991 period, the data is for USSR which Lithuania belonged to then, and Lada models reigned supreme. From 2006 onwards we have specific data for Lithuania, and as it is the case with neighbouring Estonia and Latvia, the Lithuanian models ranking has been very volatile over the period, with only the Skoda Octavia (2007-2008) and Fiat 500 (between 2012 and 2020) managing to hold onto their crown for more than one year. The other top sellers over the period are the Opel Astra (2006), Renault Megane (2009), Peugeot 3008 (2010)Nissan Qashqai (2011) and Toyota RAV4 (2021).
