The Czech car market is up 5% in 2010 at 169,236 registrations, and Skoda delivers a 1-2-3 for the second time since Eastern Europe opened up to competition, the first being 2007. The Octavia reinforces its leadership with 25,819 sales and 15.3%, up 18%, the Fabia is down 9% but still #2 at 15,588 sales and 9.2%, and the Superb had a stunning year, going from #9 to #3 with 4,476 sales (+46%).
Were it not for a very solid December from the Hyundai i30, 4th overall with 4,309 units, another Skoda would be 4th, but the Yeti finishes its first full year in 5th with 4,264 sales. The only Skoda not in such good shape is the Roomster, down 27% in 13th place.
