The Seat Ibiza returns to occupy the second position in the ranking. After having been for many years the most sought-after model in the national territory, the arrival of the successful third generation of the León travelled to Ibiza to the second position and adds its third silver medal in a row. Despite its veteran status, the utility of the Seat being one of the most popular models.

Magnificent performance of the Opel Corsa, which moves up seven positions compared to their results of 2015 to get on the podium, and Her demand has increased a fabulous 30%! The fifth generation of the Corsa has really worked well commercially thanks to its balance. For its part, the Volkswagen Polo achieved in extremis the fourth place in the annual ranking.

Thus, the four best selling models manufactured in the national territory: Leon and Ibiza in Barcelona (Martorell), Corsa in Zaragoza (Figueruelas) and Pole in Navarra (Landaben). The top 5 closes the Renault Clio, a model that received a restyling in mid-year and that has been surpassed by only six units to the Volkswagen Golf. Both the Golf as the Dacia Sandero (8th) are the only models in the Top 10 that get less sales this year than the previous.
