Thanks to Mariusz, I can now share with you the Top 50 best-selling models in Poland for each year since 1997! While up to the mid-nineties the Polish models ranking was the property of the national car, the FSO Polonez (see the 1992 ranking here), in the late nineties and early noughties the market was dominated by the locally produced mini Fiats: the Cinquecento held a 11% market share in 1997 while the dated Fiat 126 still had 10%!
In 1999 the Fiat Seicento delivered what will probably remain for many decades the highest annual volume reached by a single model in Poland: 83,391 units sold for a 13% share of a record market (640,183 registrations). The Fiat domination was oddly interrupted in 1998 by the Daewoo Tico… That year Daewoo also placed the Lanos at #2 and would place the Matiz on the podium for a few years after that.
After 4 years of Fiat Seicento reign, Skoda took the lead in 2003 with the Fabia and would place a model in pole position in Poland each year from then on except in 2004 when the Fiat Panda was king. The Fabia would lead 5 times before being passed by the Octavia from 2009 onwards…
