The Greek car market was hit hard by the economic crisis this year, down 36% to 141,404 registrations, with December down 62%. #6 in 2009, the Toyota Yaris is the best-selling car in Greece this year for the very first time in the nameplate’s 11 year career, with 5,776 sales and 4.1%, just ahead of the Ford Fiesta, 2009’s best seller, at 5,685 units (4%) and the Opel Corsa with 5,405 sales (3.8%).
Thanks to their new generations, the VW Polo (from #26 to #4) and Opel Astra (#9 to #5) climb up the ranking fast. The Fiat Panda (+21%), Hyundai i10 (+15%) & i20 (+12%) and Toyota Aygo (+38%) are some of the cheaper options Greek consumers preferred in this difficult environment. New entrants in the Top 50 this year include the new Citroen C3 (from #75 to #15), Chevrolet Spark (new at #26), Suzuki Alto (from #52 to #29), Skoda Yeti (new at #30), Renault Clio (from #72 to #38) and Toyota IQ (#59 to #39).
