There are plenty of other top-selling cars that have rocketed the sales charts this year in 2023, including the Ford Fiesta, the Kia Sportage and the Nissan Juke. All in all, there’s no definitive answer as to what makes a top-selling car. However, some possible factors that could contribute to a car’s popularity are things like whether or not it has a good reputation for reliability, safety, and quality. Customers want cars that are affordable, offer good fuel economy, and have low maintenance costs. On top of that, if a car stands out from the crowd, and reflect a personality, then it could be a top seller with a record sales year on year.
