While we were expecting a small car duel atop the European sales charts in 1975, it does not happen. The Fiat 127 remains by far the most popular model on the continent in spite of sales down 9%. The Ford Escort, boosted by the all-new second generation now on sale, jumps onto the podium, lands directly in 2nd place with 312,200 sales, relegating the Renault 5 to third position.
