Best Selling City Cars

Introducing this new exclusive ranking, we wish to specify the contents of this segment inside the car passenger’s market.

It is defined a “city car”  (or “urban car” or “mini car”) a small car passenger with a length size below the 3.7 meters intended primarily for a use inside urban area.

The term is used along with other terms for small cars including subcompact in North America. The Euro NCAP calls all small cars superminis. The European Commission refers to A-segment (Utility/city class: entry-level small passenger car). In Japan, the kei car (軽自動車 keijidōsha, lit. “light automobile”) is a specific type of small car with engine power within the 600 cc.

Thanks to the powerful F2M mobility database expanded, day after day, collecting sales of over 2.400 different models in all countries in the World, we can provide any kind of segmentation including this one.
