    • Maruti 800 in india is best selling car of world

    • Hahhahahaahhagaha no i first I’m in Russia

    • Have an idea... how about making a video about cars that you can make a bed in their boot!? like some SUVs or tesla or...

    • Once again cheating

    • What about the golf?

  • The vw golf mk4 sold 29 million cars

  • I just smiled when he sais the best selling car of all times I knew that was the TOYOTA’s COROLLA😭🤦‍♂️😂, In Asia mostly like in Bangladesh 9 of 10 cars are the TOYOTA COROLLA or TOYOTA again😂

  • Didn’t watch it yet but I know Toyota Corolla is going to be at the top.

  • Someone get a fact check on this guy

  • I actually the thought the best selling electric car would be a Nissan Leaf

  • Muh Jesus had a Honda Accord

  • Sri Lanka vw?

  • Ford F-Series are the top selling car ever. If you count the ones when they weren’t called f-series. Ford has sold close to 100 million pick ups so far.

  • My mum has a Honda jazz 2007 version.

  • im going to guess ford taurus

  • Matt: if i ask you to picture convertible sports car roadster, what are u thinking of? Me: thinking of a BMW Z4 Matt:You probably thinking of a Mazda mx-5!

  • Check out the first ultra car , named Chaos by spyrospanopoulos Automotive

  • Es más rápido que el mustang

  • Y el Ford GT ?

  • ලංකාවෙ උන් කෝ

  • I love that accord and wish it was sold here :(

  • 1:25- Matt doesn't like tesla's. Elon: I helped by dropping a very unexpected car on the list.

  • Why is your face so grey?

  • Great vid Matt

  • 6:16 - carwow EEclone analytics recognizing my views from Sri Lanka 🇱🇰 👌🏽

  • 3:29: No wonder the world is falling.

  • I just started watching the video...I am damn sure that the popular car is toyota corolla 😁 I right guys...

  • I almost thought you wouldn't mention the Corolla

  • My dream car is the tesla model X

  • Proud to be a srilankan, but i dont have a vw beetle 😋😒

  • Correction, the Volkswagen Beetle was made in Mexico till 2003.

  • We all know the Corolla is the best selling car in the world


  • He didn't include the S class as a popular luxury car

  • Thanks for including American Imperial system too Matt. 180000 Football pitch per car

  • you989

  • One millionth

  • 3:15 my gat car lol

  • anyone gonna say anything bout the thumb mail saying mustang worth 10 mill

  • What exactly is the definition of a supercar? A set of conditions, or rules or something, NOT including incredibly subjective terms like "soul" and "excitement". Gimme performance numbers - what does a car have to be able to do to be considered "super", or even "hyper"? Tell me why the R8 is a "supercar" but the Model S is not?

    • Insanely fast (Usually has 200+ MPH max speed, 2-3 seconds of 0-60 MPH acceleration, etc), insanely expensive (Usually has a 6-7 digit price-tag), and often has a very sleek, flat, low-to-the-ground design. Model S isn't a supercar because, while it does have immensely high acceleration (Mainly due to being electric), it doesn't have the insane speed or aerodynamic design that a supercar usually has. The Roadster, however, could easily be regarded as one.

  • I knew the porsche 911 would be there, even I own one, a 2018 carrera 4s convertible one

  • I’m actually in five day LOCKDOWN right now, and today is my first day 😔 ⬇️ 1 like = 1 hour of happiness...

  • 5:09 Did anyone notice that that's a VW Crafter and not a T6?

  • Drive a supra, pls!

  • My popular car ever was the the Ford Mach 1

  • Yes car off road

  • Nr 1 spot is wrong. It's the Golf. Toyota has named allot of different cars Corolla, but Golf has stayed the same. James May disagrees with you Mat! (James May: Cars of the people)

  • Amazing video Very enjoyable

  • Volkswagen polo

  • I am from sirlanka and I own a vw

  • I say we build the great wall of Corolla around the world.

  • Fun fact: if you write fun fact on a comment people will read the whole comment

  • I wonder what the most popular bus is

  • Love seeing the tesla

  • Where’s the Golf?

  • He looks like an Walker

  • Wait u count the R8 as a hypercar but the Porsche 911 as a Sportscar? Rly?

  • Without watching whole video, I can tell that Corolla and Civic are the best selling cars.

  • Hi carwow

  • Think you forgot the Toyota Quantum😄😄the mini bus taxi is probably the most sold car in South Africa 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️😂

  • Most sold hatchback? Must be a golf or a clio


  • i can alredy tell that in the thumbnail that that truck is a ford raptor

  • One Beetle for all Sri Lankans.Thank you Matt, for that lovely fact.Ironically Sri Lanka almost built a Volkswagen factory in their sweet government dreams.

  • i had a corrola loved it

  • most of the tesla owners regret buying it cus its really bad

  • I am sri lankan ...🤩

  • In Australia it’s not truck it’s ute

  • Hey mat i am frm sri lanka n i hv been watching carwow for a while. Btw try seraching on our country, we used to be a colony of ur island😳

  • 131,477,280 x 3.5 = 460,170,480 ft 44,000,000 x 12 feet approx on average , allowing for the shorter earlier cars and the longer later cars = 528,000,000 so slight exaggeration. P.s is the lockdown over yet?

  • What’s insane about the f150 is that they’ve sold pretty much most of them in North America alone.

  • So sad that Honda doesn't sell the Accord anymore in Europe. Got one of the last Accord 180 hp dtec as a caravan. I don't understand Honda. It's a nearly perfect car. Never would drive another car instead of it.

  • No best hothatch :(

  • The Ford F-150 is sold a lot because everybody uses them. Electrical companies Medical Police Fire services Construction companies Civilians And even more

  • 🇱🇰

  • Oops, the Mustang was never considered a sports car until maybe a few years after they lost the live rear axle. it was a pony car/muscle car. Sorry Matt. you lost on that one. Of course the Vette was always a sports car...

  • 5:09 that's not the latest T-series campervan. that's the "grand california" which is based on the vw crafter

  • Land cruiser

  • But how many years can the Tesla batteries power Buckingham palace for?

  • Feels like there is a million aventadors out there

  • 🇱🇰😂from srilanka❤️😋

  • Ferrari sold 17K Modena's in 4-5 years while Audi sold over 30K in 14 years! Not that impressive

  • Woah I'm from Sri Lanka 🇱🇰lol

  • not really a fair comparison. e.g. the old corvette and the new one is a completely different car. it shares the name, v8, and rear drive. everything else is different

  • 🇱🇰❤️

  • i dont know whether mat said sri lanka in like a compliment or like something else i am not sure and i hope he said it for good

  • The most rare car in my country Saudi Arabia is perius

  • Skip 40 seconds to watch the video without matts intro

  • what about estates


  • No real surprises lol.

  • f150s are fire

  • Toyota for the win !
