Europe September 2010: Golf and Fiesta fight it out

In September, the European market is down 9% on 2009, due to the decline of its main markets: Germany, UK, France and Italy all slowed down this month.

With the UK the top market this month due to the bi-annual registration change, all models that sold well in the UK get a mechanical boost in the European ranking: the Ford Fiesta goes up to 2nd, only 819 sales behind the VW Golf with 40,015 units sold (48% of which in the UK).

The Opel/Vauxhall Corsa gains 2 spots in 3rd with 32,899 sales (43% in the UK), and the Opel/Vauxhall Astra is up 3 spots in 4th with 29,597 sales (also 43% from the UK). After 2 months in 2nd place, the VW Polo drops to 5th with 29,006 units sold.

The Polo is the only model in the Top 10 that sees its sales progress vs. 2009 at +30%. Interestingly, only 27% of its September sales come from its native Germany, vs. 56% for the Golf.

Note: Europe is composed of the 27 European Union countries minus Bulgaria, Romania and Malta, plus Switzerland, Norway and Iceland.
