Model-wise, below the traditional leader the Ford Ranger (9.5%), the Dacia Duster overtakes the Toyota Hilux to rank #2, the Ford Fiesta is up 4 spots on July to #4, the Mazda BT-50 and Chevrolet Cruze both up 5 to #8 and #9 respectively, the Dacia Logan up to #23, Great Wall Voleex C20R up 8 to #26 and the Nissan Patrol up to #28 vs. #74 year-to-date. Finally let’s salute the thunderous arrival of the Citroen C4 Cactus directly at a world-best #12 with 1.9% market share which is significantly higher than in France already…
