The 10 Most Popular European Cars in the U.S.
When a foreign car is sold in the United States, the safety features on that car have to be in accordance with the U.S. safety standards; the European companies have to manufacture the car for a completely different set of safety regulations. Consequently, not all European cars are accepted in the U.S., but some are quite popular.
1. Volkswagen Jetta
In 1979, German manufacturer Volkswagen produced another great family car: Jetta. It was made to replace the Golf sedan. As of 2005, almost 7 million cars have been sold worldwide, over one-third of sales have been in the United States. Since the original version in 1980, the car has continued to improve with better safety features and making use of new technology. In 2011, nearly 10 million have been produced and sold all over the world. As of April 2014, over 14 million have been sold, which made this model Europe’s and Volkswagen’s top-selling model.
