3. Volkswagen Golf: 27.5M units sold

Clearly Volkswagen has had some success in its history, with yet another vehicle making the cut. This time it’s the Golf, traditionally the least expensive compact car the German automaker has to offer. (That is, until the new Jetta arrived). It originally debuted in 1974 as the Rabbit in America and was intended to be a successor to the Beetle, but we all know how that went. Now the Golf, Beetle and Passat team up for a powerful trio of vehicle models that helps drive VW as the number two automaker in the world for 2011.
