The Corolla is the world's best selling car in first half of 2016

By Faiming_low on 09 Aug 2016

Attached Image Focus2move, a statistics reporting company in the automotive sector, has revealed the world's best selling car so far in 2016. And its the Toyota Corolla. With 634,298 units delivered in the first six months of the year, the Japanese car tops the chart even though its sales was down 1.2 percent from the previous period.

Second in that list belongs to the Volkswagen Golf which garnered 500,630 sales, and surprisingly, it had a 1.8 percent increase in sales despite the emissions scandal that happened months ago.

Meanwhile, Ford's F-Series trucks took third place with 478,394 units delivered while its Focus sits at the fourth place with 367,479 units. Fifth goes to the Hyundai Elantra, with 363,490 deliveries.


The car with the highest jump belongs to the Hyundai Tuscon which climbed 949 spots to the 16th place with its 285,060 sales, a massive 202.4 percent increase in popularity, likely due to its recent introduction of the all-new generation model.

I believe in Singapore, the top selling model for 2016 so far is Honda Vezel though officially maybe Altis as PI figures not able to consolidate in total?
