The 5 most popular cars of 2020

5th: Mercedes A-class = 37,608 sales registered


30 years ago, Mercedes was completely out of reach for the majority. But now, they have never been easier to get. With a highly sophisticated design, cutting-edge technology and an exceptionally smooth drive, the Mercedes A-class stands as a clear favourite among the luxury vehicle market.

It even makes your life a little easier with its touch screen and the highly innovative operating system that powers it, as well as the driver assistance displays on both sides of the steering wheel. 

4th: Ford Focus = 39,372 sales registered


Its simple and comfortable driving is what propelled the Ford Focus to fourth place on our list. Owners have been quoted saying that driving it is pure joy, mainly thanks to its advanced rear suspension fitting. 

What’s more interesting is that 2020 saw the introduction of the new electrified Focus EcoBoost Hybrid powertrain. This 48-volt mild hybrid system improves fuel efficiency supported by cylinder deactivation. It also delivers an enhanced driver experience with its new “true colour” 12.3-inch LCD instrument cluster.

3rd: Volkswagen Golf = 43,109 sales registered


Mainly as a result of its affordable price, comfort, and high functionality, this model is in the third place of our list. If what you’re looking for is high performance and reliability, don’t be fooled by its small size; its fuel-saving diesel-powered engine makes it an affordable and efficient vehicle, even for long drives. It is also quite easy to maneuver in the city and, according to users, softens bumps remarkably well.
