The Croatian car market is down slightly year-on-year in March at 3,779 registrations and -1%, bringing the year-to-date total to 10,832 units, up 3% on 2011. Coming out of nowhere (#21 in February), the Skoda Fabia surprises everyone by becoming the best-selling model in Croatia this month with 151 sales and 4% share. This is possibly the first time the Fabia ever leads the monthly Croatian ranking! The Opel Astra, #1 last month, is down to #6 but stays in pole position year-to-date with 437 units and 4%.
Two Frenchies complete the podium: the Renault Megane is up 5 spots on February to #2 with 126 sales and 3.3% and the Peugeot 308 is up one rank to #3 at 125 units. Volkswagen has another solid month and now places the Golf #2, Passat #3 and Polo #4 in the 2012 year-to-date ranking… 2011′s leader, the Skoda Octavia is weak in this start of 2012, down to #8 in March and #5 year-to-date.
