Europe 1993-1994: VW Golf stays on top, Opel Astra #2

VW Golf

Over the period, the VW Golf 3rd generation gears up to its cruising level with monthly European sales figures upwards of 50,000 units, followed closely by the Opel Astra. Launched in November 1993, the Fiat Punto quickly climbs the European sales ranks to establish itself in the podium towards the end of 1994, finishing the year at #4 overall.

Opel Astra

The Ford Fiesta stays solid and in 3rd place whereas the Opel Corsa, completely revamped in 1993, progress to #5 in 1994. The Renault Clio is down to 7th and passed by the restyled Ford Escort. The Ford Mondeo and Peugeot 306, both 1993 launches, appear in 8th and 9th place respectively in 1994.
