At 3,197 registrations, the Croatian car market is up 7% in September and 12% year-to-date at 32,809 units. After Police orders impacting on Skoda Octavia sales in March, it's now taxi fleets that rejig the Croatian models ranking this month. Oryx Taxi, a new company operating in Zagreb, received 100 shining new VW Passats this month and it is enough to make it the best-selling car in the country with 165 sales and 5.2% share. (Many thanks to Petar for the info!)

Great month for Skoda with the Octavia up to 2nd place at 152 units and 4.8% and now back in the 2011 year-to-date lead with 1,477 sales and 4.5%, and the Fabia up 6 spots to #4 and 118 units (3.7%). The VW Polo stays robust at #3 both this month (3.9%) and year-to-date (4.2%).

The Hyundai i30 drops 5 spots to #6 while Opel struggles this month with the Astra #7 (#2 year-to-date) and the Corsa #8 (#4 year-to-date). Other good performers include the Kia Cee'd at #10 and the Peugeot 207 at #11.
