The Volkswagen T-Roc is poised to remain ahead of the Dacia Sandero to be July's top-seller in Europe.
The T-Roc small SUV leads Dacia's small hatchback by 1,508 sales, based on preliminary figures from market researcher Dataforce. If it holds on it would be the first time this year that the T-Roc finished the month at No. 1.
Meanwhile, the Renault Clio and VW Golf are in a tight race for third place, with the Clio ahead by just 343 sales, according to data representing 90 percent of sales in the European Union, the EFTA countries and the U.K.
The Clio's sales were up 116 percent while the Golf's had risen 9.4 percent.
There are also very close races for No. 6 and No. 8 on the list of July's top-sellers.
