As getting anywhere without a car becomes harder and harder, it’s no mystery why this business is booming like never before. Back in the day people began driving cars, there were scarcely a handful of models. Now you can look into any street and see a dozen or more cars instantly having different brands, models or options. But which car are we buying the most?
Car trends and prices are constantly changing so this list will only mention the world’s best sellers as we compose this article. For this reason it would appear unnecessary to mention sales numbers. Let’s see what we are coming up with. Don’t expect any luxury automobiles on this.
It’s hard not to like a Ford Focus: it has power, it has a bit of bite, it drives quite sporty and it’s fairly cheap. The guide price is $20,000 so that most young people should be able to afford one, without options. Second hand, if necessary.
It’s one of the rare SUV’s that managed to get into the Chinese market, and now it also has a hybrid version! And don’t get me started on the incredible level of comfort and space offered by this beast. Very decent car, priced very decently for $30,000 – no options.
Although this may not be the most attractive car on paper, it’s highly reliable on its side. It’s not the most comfortable car, it’s not the most powerful car and it’s certainly not the most beautiful car you’ll ever see, but it’s the most balanced car.
Apparently one of them is a POLO for every four Volkswagen cars that it sells. I think this car talks volumes. It is quite a cheap one (not even $20,000) and reliable. It won’t do well on rough terrain, but that’s probably part of why it’s mostly so popular in Europe.
There’s nothing overly special about this car, but it’s a very reliable choice for your money, like the Toyota Camry. Only difference is that this one is a regular sedan rather than an SUV. It’s on the slightly more costly side, with a $35,000 price tag.
Like all Toyota cars, this is really a pretty reliable SUV for the money (around $25,000). For this, the off-road performance isn’t overly good, but why would you want what is essentially an off-road driving family car?
Oh those Cars from Asia! They are so reliable they all want one. I’m pretty sure we all know a guy driving a Honda Civic, and it’s hardly surprising when your car is so good value for money (sub-$20,000 once again). And they also drive fairly sporty!
The Volkswagen Golf, the world’s most successful hatchback has been a recognized car for many, many years. No wonder we find this car so high up this list, and it’s priced at a very reasonable $25,000 dollar.
Ford F Series
This screams “America” on that side of the pond, and it is the best. The basic pick-up F-150 is priced at a very manageable $28,400 and is truly sooo American. Little known fact: for those pulling in more than $500,000 per year, the F-150 is the chariot of choice. Rationale? For the buck rig it’s a real value / bang and we know the wealthy are looking for value – that how they got wealthy!
Another car was priced at around $20,000, and another Asian-made car. It’s horribly balanced, like most Toyota cars, in the sense that it has no clear upsides but no major downsides either. It’s the world’s most popular car and why shouldn’t it be so?
