In the brands ranking, all 3 premium German carmakers now belong in the Top 4 for the first time in history: below Volkswagen solid at 21.8% share, Mercedes improves to 9.2% thanks to 283,006 sales while Audi gains 6% to land at #3 with 266,582 units and 8.6% share. BMW rounds up the Top 4, down 3% on 2011.

VW Golf

In the models ranking, the VW Golf is unsurprisingly the most popular model in the country for the 32nd consecutive year (no interruption since 1981!) and for the 37th time in the last 38 years, with only the Mercedes W123 interrupting its reign in 1980. It sells 240,702 units for a 7.8% market share, down 7% on 2011 but the arrival of the 7th generation late this year should give it a kick in 2013.

In fact the podium is unchanged on 2011 with the VW Passat (-14%) and Polo (-16%) following in the ranking, making it the 2nd year in a row (and ever) that Volkswagen monopolises the year-end German podium.

Mercedes B-Class

The Mercedes C-Class (-13%) and Opel Astra (-23%) exchange positions, while the BMW 3 Series is up one spot to #6. But the most impressive progression in the Top 10 is without a doubt delivered by the Mercedes B-Class, boosted by the arrival of the new model. It simply doubles its sales vs. last year and gains 21 spots to reach a record #7 at 59,420 units, even breaking into the monthly podium for the very first time in September at #3. The BMW 1 Series, also supported by a new generation, is up 7 ranks and 12% to #8 with 59,241 sales and hits a record #2 in December.

VW Tiguan

The other model hitting a significant milestone this year is the VW Tiguan, up 8 spots and 22% to a best-ever #11 at 55,615 units. While it had only broken into the monthly Top 10 twice before 2012, it repeats this feat no less than 7 times this year, peaking at #7. The Audi A6/A7 is also up 8 ranks to #13, the Skoda Octavia is stable at its highest ever year-end ranking (#17) while the VW Up! manages to break into the German year-end Top 20 for its first full year of sales in the country at #20 with 42,842 units.

Given Skoda and Seat are 100% owned by the Volkswagen Group, the best-selling ‘true’ foreign model in Germany this year and for the first time ever is the Nissan Qashqai in spite of sales down 11% to #29. It only just passes the Hyundai i30 at #30 (-12%) with the Renault Megane (#37), Toyota Yaris (#38) and Renault Clio (#40) the only other imports in the Top 40.

Mercedes ML-Class

 Other great performers include the Opel Zafira up 52% to #26, Audi Q3 up 778% to #34 for its first full year of sales, Hyundai ix35 up 44% to #48, Mercedes GLK up 34% to #51, Mercedes ML-Class up 117% to #58 and Hyundai i40 up 433% to #87. 4 all-new models appear in the Top 100: the Peugeot 208 lukewarm at #66, the Mazda CX-5 at #86, Skoda Citigo at #90 and Seat Mii at #97.

Four Tips for Driving in the Rain

As you take the journey to your home, you may experience rainy conditions on the road, whether it’s a slight drizzle or a serious thunderstorm. Navigating through the wet weather requires you to take extra caution – here are a few tips for helping you drive through the rain. Here are Four Tips for Driving in the Rain from BuyCar123.com

Stay in the Middle

Most roads are shaped so there’s a slight incline leading up to the middle of the thoroughfare, so the water will drain down to the sides. BuyCar123.com recommends keeping your vehicle in the center of the road to avoid driving through large accumulations of water.

Go Easy on the Brakes

As you come to a stop, you should avoid putting immediate and forceful pressure on the brake, as this can cause your wheels to lock up. Combined with the wet roads, this can also cause your vehicle to skid. Instead, pump the brakes and only apply a slight bit of pressure. This makes it extra important to constantly look at the road ahead so you can begin stopping earlier.

Replace Wiper Blades

Wipers can get worn down, but you might not realize it until it rains and you have decreased visibility. Before you begin your journey, replace your wiper blades.

Keep Calm in Hydroplane

If your car begins to hydroplane, The Weather Channel warns against immediately braking or suddenly turning to correct your path. Instead, slowly take your foot off the gas pedal until you regain control. If you begin to skid, the source notes that you should take your foot off the gas pedal and try to steer the car where you want it to go. Don’t try to use the brakes if you don’t have anti-lock brakes, but if you do, steer into the skid.
