Since the inception of the automotive industry there have been a number of debates regarding the success of cars. The only decisive factor in this regard is the number of sales annually. The recent recession has made the think tanks to reevaluate this criterion, and now a more intense and complex calculation is carried out, which is based on a number of factors, such as cost, luxuries, etc. But through the years it has been anonymously decided that the sales per model remain the top most factor in determining the success of each car. Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic and Volkswagen Golf are more and more popular among the masses and are regarded as the most reliable cars up to date.

This car was among the earliest models of Ford and successfully sold 16.5 million units, making it the fifth bestselling car in the history. This car was the first car to be manufactured using the assembly line concept, thus making it cheaper and contributing in its immense sale.
