Brazil 1982: Fiat 147 and VW Voyage above VW Fusca

Fiat 147

1982 is the second year the Fiat 147 leads Brazilian car sales and the first year over 100,000 units of the model were produced, at 110,336. The Fiat 147 has established a comfortable margin over all other models produced in the country.

The VW Voyage, a 3-door sedan version of the VW Gol, is #2 for its very first full year of production with no less than 69,330 units spit out of the Brazilian VW factory. This is an odd development that has probably been forgotten since, as the VW Gol, only 5th most produced Brazilian model in 1982 (58,633 units) would end up becoming Brazil’s best seller for over 20 years whereas the Voyage would fall into oblivion.

VW Voyage

Both the VW Fusca and the Chevrolet Chevette drop 1 spot to #3 and #4 with 64,984 and 61,221 units respectively. The Chevrolet Monza at #9 with 34,619 units and the VW Parati at #17 at 12,168 units both launch this year and appear in the Brazilian rankings for the first time.
