After exploring the Top 10 brands and models for December, it is now time to look at complete rankings. Brand-wise, Nissan (+30%), Seat (+21%), Mini (+43%), Smart (+65%) and Jeep (+193%) all impress in the Top 30. Outside the familiar Top 10, the Opel Astra is back up 7 spots on a particularly weak month of November to #12, however its stablemate the Opel Mokka is following closely, up 86% year-on-year to beat the European ranking record it set last month and lift it to #14. The Mercedes C-Class is a little further from the Top 10 than last month by still reaches a very respectable 13th place with sales up 76% on December 2013 vs. #19 for the BMW 3 Series and #37 for the Audi A4.
…As does the Seat Leon up to #18.
The Seat Leon continues its incredible run in Europe, boosted by a very strong performance in Germany: it is up another 46% year-on-year in December to #18, simply the nameplate’s best-ever ranking on the continent. The Mini, now helped by a 5-door variant, more than double the nameplate’s sales year-on-year (+102%) to land at #22, the Volvo V40 is up 18 ranks on November to #30, the VW Golf Sportsvan is back into its category lead at #32 (vs. #35 for the Renault Scénic and #41 for the Citroen C4 Picasso), the Ford Kuga is up 31% to #40, the BMW 2 Series up 11 ranks to #64 and the Citroen C4 Cactus up one to #66.
First European Top 100 ranking for the Jeep Renegade in December.
As far as recent launches are concerned, the Jeep Renegade lodges its very first European Top 100 ranking in December, up 27 spots to #91, the Nissan Pulsar is up 14 ranks to #110, the Smart Forfour up 36 to #114, the BMW X4 up 3 to #128 but the Ford Ecosport is already down 11 on November to #136.
