22 January 2007

It might be the archetypal average car, but Ford’s Focus was outsold in Europe by the Astra (below) and Clio last year.

Sales figures put the Opel/Vauxhall Astra at number one, with 437,673 sales. Renault’s Clio was second with 431,595 sales, while the Focus came in third with 418,490.

Volkswagen was Europe’s best-selling make — 1,669,837 VWs were sold last year.
