Happy New Year 2011, and how to cross a street in Hanoi…

January 1, 2011 4 comments

Best Selling Cars wishes you all a Happy New Year 2011!

Check out above my little New Year video filmed in Hanoi, Vietnam where I’m spending my holidays. The trick for crossing the city’s busy streets is to walk at a steady pace. This way the traffic can anticipate where you will be next and evolve all around you… (Thanks to my dear Mum & Dad for filming me).

As for 2011,  these are some of my most anticipated questions:

Will Toyota crack India with the Etios?

Will the Chevrolet Cruze or VW Lavida replace the BYD F3 on top of Chinese sales?

Will the new Ford Focus take the lead in the UK and threaten the VW Golf in Europe?

For more, see below.
