After being topped by the Skoda Octavia last month in the year-to-date models ranking, the VW Golf manages to claw back its way into pole position but by the smallest possible margin: one unit! Selling 1.382 units in April brings the Golf’s year-to-date total to 4.432 sales whereas the Octavia’s 1.017 April score lifts its 2015 total to 4.431. The race for #1 in any country in the world this year continues on…
