Best-selling cars in Europe

4. Renault Clio 201,604 sales, +42% YoY

Renault’s popular supermini is now a bigger seller than the Volkswagen Golf. Who’d have thought it? The Clio is a desirable option for its eye-catching looks but also its frugal powertrain line-up, with an E-Tech hybrid option and a simple 1.0-litre petrol.  We’re big fans of this small French car, and it’ll likely remain just as popular this year. 

5. Peugeot 208 193,679 sales, -6% YoY

The Peugeot 208 supermini was 2022’s best-selling car in Europe, but it didn’t quite hit that pace in 2023. It’s still a small car well worth considering though, with a choice of petrol and all-electric powertrains. Plus, it’s one of the best-looking out there. 

6. Opel/Vauxhall Corsa 188,154 sales, +15% YoY

The cheaper sibling of the Peugeot 208 enjoys strong demand. A refreshed model is due in the coming months – adding Vauxhall’s signature Vizor front end and bringing a range boost for the Corsa Electric, which could catalyse a rise up the charts. 

7. Volkswagen Golf 183,716 sales, +4% YoY

The ubiquitous Volkswagen Golf has been a long-time favourite in Europe, but it’s gradually been sliding down the charts with each passing year. But it’s still an excellent all-rounder, and a new facelifted model will go on sale in 2024. We can’t wait to get our hands on one. 

8. Toyota Yaris Cross 176,285 sales, +29% YoY

It’s easy to see why the Yaris Cross is a hit. Not only is it a relatively affordable car, but it’s also backed by Toyota’s legendary reputation for reliability and, as a hybrid, can easily average 60mpg under a careful right foot. 

9. Fiat 500 173,187 sales, -3% YoY

Is there a more recognisable small car than the Fiat 500? It has been on sale since 2007 and it’s unlikely to be dropped any time soon. More recently, the model gained a next-generation electric sibling with a battery size of up to 44kWh. However, it’s the petrol that’s still by far the more popular, taking 108,943 of the total stated above.
