    One thing you might want to do here is combine those vehicles that are the same but just in different bodystyles.

    For instance:

    VW Gol, Voyage, and Parati are the same car
    Chevy Prisma and Celta are the same car
    Fiat Palio, Siena, and palio Weekend are the same car.
    Ford Fiesta sedan and hatch

    etc,etc,etc

    Mind you that Fenabvrave does not split multi-generational models like the Fiesta, Gol and UNO.

      Hey Ausrutherford,

      Yep I have thought about doing this as well, but then the ranking becomes really different and you face the question of adding the pick-up versions of each car as well: Saveiro for the Gol, Strada for the Palio etc… All in all I have decided to go with the data provided by Fenavabre, so it makes it more consistent and easier to compare with historical data (which I’m adding little by little, Brazil coming up soon). For Argentina for example as you must have noticed, ACARA provides the generational detail for the Gol, Fiesta and Uno and I have kept it that way for historical consistency’s sake…. The only thing I do with Argentina is add up the passenger and commercial sales figures of models like the Renault Kangoo, Peugeot Partner and Citroen Berlingo which exist in both rankings…

      Anything is possible but I have decided to stay faithful to the figures submitted by the official organisms 🙂
