Any guesses what car is the most popular in the world?  Like me, I bet lots of people would've said the Toyota Camry.  While the Camry is on the list of the ten most popular vehicles in the world, it's not number one.  Ready to be surprised?

According to an article in USA Today, the Ford Focus is the most popular car on the planet.  This is the second year in a row the Focus has topped the list of most popular cars.  Over a million of them were sold last year.  The reason?  Globally, small cars rule.    Also for the second year, the Toyota Corolla is second on the list.  Small sedans dominate the top ten list.  There's only one vehicle on the list that was unfamiliar to me and probably to you as well.  The Wuling Zhiguang is a Chinese family car.  As you can see, Ford has to be pleased with this list, since they're on it more than any other car company.
