Medium sized cars existed since 1930’s but they rose in popularity only in 1950’s. In the USA at that time, Ford’s market research unit recognized the large potential of this market and started targeting college educated, higher-income individuals as well as families buying more than one car. In Europe, this market is also known as “Golf Segment”, due to dominance of Volkswagen’s Golf in the last quarter of the twentieth century.
