2009 Ford Fiesta Steals Europe's Top Spot
If you were going to be doing a bit of cad drawing for a super sweet automobile you probably wouldn't be dreaming up a Ford Fiesta, but that doesn't mean that people aren't buying it.
ATO Dynamics’ monthly analysis of the European new car market is showing, for the first time in a year, the hugely popular Volkswagen Golf has lost its strangle hold as Europe’s most popular model, handing the accolade to Ford’s well received new Fiesta. The Fiesta’s success is set against an overall European new car market which fell 9.0% (or 147,965 units) in March 2009 compared to March 2008, to a total of 1,488,386 units. Year-to-Date the market fell 16.9% (or 691,350 units) compared to the same period last year, to a total of 3,401,473 units.
