    Moi, vivant en Allemagne et ayant la statistique complète, je pourrais vous aider en donnant des nombres d’immatriculations qui manquent.

    Aston Martin Cygnet: 1 en septembre, 16 jusqu’à septembre 2011.

    Le Lancia Voyager n’est pas encore vendu en Allemagne. Seulement 5 Chrysler Voyager ont été vendus en septembre.

    Salut Matt,
    Je viens de revoir, je vois qu’il manque quelques modèles (Aston Martin Cygne, Lancia Voyager, etc)…
    Pour les sources allemandes, ils ne mettent pas tous les chiffres à mon avis!
    Tu peux demander àEnrique (es.auto)?

      Merci STAC! C’est bizarre car les chiffres de Auto Bild ne mentionnent pas la Skoda Citgo?

    @ pedro: We will see during the following months … ;)

    BTW: In Germany the Duster achieves a lower position (38 YTD) than in europe (24 in the first half of 2011). As Matt wrote: “Tiguan in great shape”. ;)

    Yeah, Dacia-Buyers don’t have money for holiday trips, so they get their Duster in August ;-)

    Be aware of german summer-holidays in this month. Something is always out of order in this time. In august the BMW X1 was better than the VW Tiguan, now the Corsa is better than the Polo, but don’t forget YTD-sales.

    … seems too Sith! That´s a fact.

    OMG, 1914 Dacia Dusters (17119 YTD) that seems that the germans have no money any more for real cars.

    shame on you

    Well Fabio, for me theres only one segment B car: The Fiesta. It´s attractive in style, quite modern, excellent engines petrol and diesel, suberb handling and drive, nice interior with lots of front space, quite reliable, see http://www.reliabilityindex.com, and competitive price. The Toyota Yaris and mazda 2 are also very good cars!

    I read (see link below) that in sept 72 % of the corsa went to “non-private” customers, while this figure was for the Polo 42 % only. It seems that many Opel-Dealers registered Corsas at the end of the quarter for “improving” statistics. YTD the Polo rules anyway.

    @Miguel Figueira
    I like both, Polo and Corsa. the Vw is most serious but it’s a really good car, the Corsa is really nice but for the Opel I’d rather not spend more than 15,000.00 €, over this price i prefer a Polo or maybe a C3 full optional

    The Corsa deserves! The polo no.

    Wow. The Corsa actually sold better than ‘B-segment Meister’ Polo… Chapeau Opel!

      Yep – I think it’s the first time the Corsa sells better than the current generation Polo.
