Courtesy of French magazine Auto Plus, we can share with you a little summer treat: the Top 10 most popular brands and models in France over the first 11 days of July. Keep in mind these rankings are always heavily biased by various sales strategy, notably by Renault – a company that always does most of its monthly volume during the last week of the month. Over the period, the market is worryingly down 7.5% year-on-year, a situation that may get worse as the month comes to an end, given July 2015 had two additional selling days as this month. Peugeot dominates the brands ranking above Citroen and Renault, with Audi (-4%), BMW (+32%) and Mercedes (+15%) faring particularly well. The Peugeot 208 is in the lead above the 308 and the Citroen C3, the VW Polo (#6), Golf (#9) and Toyota Yaris (#10) the only foreigners in the Top 10.
