FCA’s market share advanced from 3,27% in 2013 to 3,35% due mostly to the moderated sales growth of the Fiat 500 (the 9th best-selling car in the UK), that counted for 55% of the group sales. 2 out of 3 cars sold by FCA in the UK were a city-car. Upper segments such as the E and F posted big growths thanks to the rising demand of the Maserati Ghibli and Quattroporte.
