The Volkswagen Golf climbed to second in the Slovenian market in 2017, but drops; with 1672 sales evaporating its lead over the now second-place Polo, which sold 1771. First place goes to the Renault Clio, though, with 2242 sales. The Clio is built in Slovenia in facelifted form, which helps it maintain its lead there.
Spain: Seat Leon
What’s Spanish for ‘quelle surprise’? The Seat Leon and Ibiza take gold and silver in Spain, with 21,045 and 19,300 finding a place in the sun so far this year, and the Ibiza's German cousin, the Volkswagen Polo, takes third place with 16,810. Surprisingly, though, the rest of the top ten is a healthy mix.
Sweden: Volvo S90/V90
There was uproar in 2016 when the Volkswagen Golf took the lead in Sweden’s car market from Volvo, but three Volvos combined took second: the S80, V70 and XC70. Volvo was back on top in 2017, and today, the S90 and V90 are in pole position on 17,846, followed by the S60 and V60, with 11,067 sales, while the XC60 takes third on 10,085. The Golf is pushed down into fourth place.
