no they're all sold in the same markets. Peugeot and Citroen sell in identical markets and FIAT is a pretty common sight across Europe.
My point being that the City Express is a small urban van and here its being compared to a full size van. Its not a one size fits all deal, that's why they make different sizes
It's definitely not a one size fits all sort of deal, even just thinking about why you want one should be enough to throw you in the right direction in terms of size and which segment you should be in.
i'd say most consumers arent to worried about what their car is BASED from. they just want a car that makes them happy or fills their needs.
This is very true. It's more about what they do to the cars that run on the same platform that matters rather than the fact they are on the same platform. A lot of vehicles these days that share the same platform have some big differences.
