Top 5 most popular cars in the world for 2018November 4, 2018
The rating of the best-selling cars in 2018 is remembered by the fast-growing segment of crossovers with the undisputed leader of the Toyota RAV4, and the models of the VW Tiguan, Jeep Compass and Jeep Wrangler that are quickly catching up with it.
The international car market has been growing steadily since 2019. Annual sales increase by 2-3% and 2018 is not far behind this statistics. According to experts from focus2move, the current year will end with about 98 million cars sold, and 2019 will reach a record and anniversary mark of 100 million units.
The first eight months for the automotive market also marked an active growth in sales. However, the beginning of the economic “war” of Donald Trump with the Middle Kingdom influenced the pace of sales, although the growth continued.

The second place went to the real “American” Ford F-Series. The model is incredibly popular in the United States of America, and sales continue to grow. Thus, the off-road pickup for 2018 (to November) was sold in the amount of 722,566 units, which accounted for an increase of 7.8%.
Closes the top three bestseller of the European market – Volkswagen Golf. The compact hatchback was sold in the amount of 572,772 units.
