If this picture is any indication Germans really go for practical vehicles. Most of the vehicles on that lot are wagons or minivans. There's only one or two hatchbacks, a convertible two seater and that odd pickup and only a few examples of America's most popular vehiclethe four-door sedan.
I think the two sedans parked at the end of the second row are Asian, perhaps Toyotas, they're next to that oddball Ford F-140/250 There's a light blue hatchback that might be an older Opel Corsa. It's next to a black Volvo Wagon (V70) which is next to a small Renault (Clio?) and then a VW Group wagon and last a Mercedes C-Class.
The third row is really tough because you can only see the rears. On the left there's a VW wagon (Passat or Bora) followed by a white something or other. The silver wagon is definitely a BMW E46 (3 series). 2 cars to its right there is a Volvo wagon.
The only other cars I can id are the Golf at the left end of row 4 and a silver Mercedes (CLK?) at the top.
German drivers apparently share the American aversion to bright expressive colors.

Pretty sure the pickup is a current gen Dodge Ram.

It is a Ram and Holy Smokes I can't imagine footing the fuel bill for that thing over there!

I think the VW van is a Sharan, but the wagon is actually a Passat, note the front grille.

For row 2 I think the first car is a BMW 5 series (Dame Edna edition) then an S class, I think?

Row 3...had to look at the big pic for these...
Passat B4 wagon, W211 E wagon, E46 3 series wagon, Focus wagon, new 5 series wagon, hmmm.
#6, with the vertical tails, is tough to call. You only see the rear and that's it. Could be a Peugoet or a Focus?
Not sure on the white van at the far right.

Row 4. Getting kinda small, but I think I can ID some....
Fiat, maybe Punto?
Dame Edna 5 series wagon.
Seat. Leon? wagon I guess.
Fiesta 5 door.
Another Fiesta? It's cut off so hard to tell.
CLS in the way back, too.
Can't ID the generic looking white 5 door in the back.
Brazil gets a lot of these cars so I've seen a lot of them in person before.
