all of whom have posted healthy gains YTD.At a model level, the Volkswagen Golf is the fifth best-selling car YTD, while the BMW 3 Series is seventh. Years ago, there was a huge fuss when the 3 Series first overtook the Ford Mondeo. Now it outsells the Ford by more than 2:1. Could user-choosers one day go for what used to be called "volume models" over premium ones, on the grounds that they are more exclusive?In the mid-table, the traditional volume brands such as Renault and Peugeot are coming under huge pressure from below as well as above. Kia and Hyundai are now in shouting distance of Toyota, while Skoda is not far behind the Koreans. Five years ago, the idea that Kia might sell more cars to fleets than Toyota would have been laughable. In July, it actually happened. The interesting thing is that the three economy brands are not rising because of any one particular star car in their range: none of their models indi­vidually makes the top 20. What is more worrying for competitors is that they are advancing across a number of segments at the same time: for example, most Kia models have sold between 2,000 and 4,000 fleet units so far this year. Down at the far end of the table, the brand with the most ground to make up is Jeep, which has fallen behind Porsche, while sister brand Chrysler has all but ceased to exist in the fleet market. The parent company is making bullish noises about the future, but these American brands have fallen so far behind that it is going to take a herculean effort to turn them around. Sales figuresFocus success sends Ford to top of best-sellers listBy Jay Nagley, Spyder AutomotiveWith a fleet proportion of 57.4% in July, the fleet market continued its strong performance of recent months. The proportion is 52.8% year-to-date, which is the highest figure since well before the recession started in 2008.Vauxhall continues to take the top spot, which it wrested from Ford in late 2010, although Ford fought back in July, retaking leadership for the month by a small margin.The main reason is the new Ford Focus, which is now the best-selling fleet model. In fact, there is an odd symmetry at work: the Focus is approximately 2,500 sales ahead of the Astra, while the Insignia is approximately 2,500 units ahead of the Mondeo.It will take a bit of time for the new Focus to settle down, but first indications are that it is doing good business. So far in Europe, Ford's gamble on the Focus as a single world car is paying off, but it is too early to tell if the Americans will take to it as enthusiastically. Behind the top two comes the now equally-tradi­tional German trio of Volkswagen, BMW and Audi, Ford's Focus is now the best-selling fleet model
