Italian Best Selling Cars. The top 100 in the 2018

Italian best selling cars

Italian best selling cars in 2018 dominated by the Fiat Panda for the seventh consecutive year with a wide gap over the leader among imported vehicles, the Renault Clio. The Jeep Renegade, made in Italy, ranks in 5th place.

The market long recovery is ended in the 2018, considering the car park density in Italy is the highest in Europe and within the top 5 worldwide.

Data released by the Italian Minister of Transportation reported that the market has ended with 1918.526 sales. The steady growth of past years has stopped, with a decline of 2.6% this year. The deadline of September 1st for introduction of WLTP emission standard, moved up and down the registrations data in single Q3 months, but not as in others EU countries.

As far as the best selling car ranking, for the 7th year in a row the 2018 market leader is the city-car Fiat Panda with sales at 124.266 (-14.9%) followed by the leader of imported vehicles, the Renault Clio with 51.628 (1.9%) and the Fiat 500X with 49.931 (+9%).

In fourth place the Lancia Ypsilon with 48.555 (-19.5%) ahead of the Jeep Renegade with 41.960 (+11.5%), the Citroen C3 with 41.584 (-1.8%) and the Volkswagen Polo with 39.499 (+4%).

In eight place  the Fiat Tipo with 40.337 (-28%) followed by the Fiat 500 with 39.885 units (-26.1%) and in 10th place by the Ford Fiesta with 39.681 (-2.9%).

Very close to the Top 10 there is the Jeep Compass, 12th and up 407%, while the Volkswagen Golf (13th) is out of this short list, first time after 30 years.
