Best of 2014: The Race to the Top

Carmudi presents the top five selling cars of the year 

With new cars, SUVs, and trucks introduced this year, car shoppers have had more than hundreds of models to choose from in 2014. Some 72 million cars were sold globally in 2014. As the year comes to an end, Carmudi, the fastest way to buy and sell cars online, lists the 5 most popular cars on the market this year. These cars made the list for being the most popular in terms of price, quality and number of sales made this year.

Take a look at this year’s top 5 selling cars worldwide according to Carmudi:

1. Toyota Corolla – over 587,491 sold

The Toyota Corolla is once again on top of the list this year. Corolla, claimed to be the best-selling car in history, has sold over 40 million units since it first entered the market. 

The Corolla continues to be a great hit among car shoppers for being penny-pinching in terms of fuel efficiency and purchase price. We now have the 12th generation of the Corolla, which is still easily as reliable and trustworthy as the first generation that was introduced half a century ago. The Corolla comes with a price tag starting from $ 16,900 (AED 62,076).

2. Ford Focus – over 531,557 sold

With the Focus, Ford has successfully lived up to their slogan “Your friend at the pump and your love on the road”, providing a big enough space for a family of 5 as well having great fuel economy. The Focus is also known for its great driving experience and also packed with premium features, securing its position at number 2 best selling car this year.

3. Volkswagen Golf – over 524,127 sold

VW’s Golf remains high on the list of best hatchback picks for its efficiency, beautifully refined interiors and high-tech engines all wrapped with a high quality feel. The Golf is said to be fun and comfortable to drive with its snappy handling and brilliant suspensions. The Golf grabbed the spotlight since it was first introduced in the mid 70’s equipped with water-cooled engines, which were groundbreaking at the time. Golf lovers rejoice as the 2015 model comes with better soundproofing and a more sophisticated safety system to assure you that it will be just as great – if not better than its predecessors.

4. Ford F-Series – over 513,127 sold

Ford continues to prove that it is a force to be reckoned with, despite having a 3% sales slide earlier in September, but still landing in the top of this year’s most sold cars. The Ford F-Series trucks are said to be some of the most iconic trucks around and favourites amongst truck lovers. They are known for their sturdiness and efficiency; absolute powerhouses in the shape of a truck. Ford is also planning to up the ante for their 2015 models, which will be using military-grade aluminum and have improved rear suspensions, guaranteeing you a truck that will be worth the wait.

5. Hyundai Elantra – over 406,995 sold

The Elantra has made it on this list for a good reason. Introduced 24 years ago, the Elantra is definitely one of the best cars that Hyundai has ever built. With its sleek design with hard plastics and soft-touch surfaces, spacious interior, user-friendly tech features and a sensible price tag, it is definitely a big hit with car shoppers. The Elantra, that comes as a sedan and a hatchback, definitely secures a top position amongst the ultra competitive sedan segment.
