A very robust 39,905 new cars found a buyer in Switzerland in June, bringing the year-to-date total to 177,310 registrations, up a very respectable 12% on 2011. The Top 4 best-sellers are identical to the year-to-date ranking this month: the VW Golf leads with an excellent 4.5% market share thanks to 1,809 sales, the Skoda Octavia also lodges a very solid month at 1,587 units and 4% while the VW Polo is back from a hellish 25th spot last month to its traditional third place with 700 sales and 1.8%. The VW Tiguan continues to shine at #4 with 613 units and 1.5% whereas it finished the year 2011 at #18…
At #5 the Opel Astra is back is shape, up 8 spots on May, and is followed by the Mercedes C Class still very impressive at 504 sales and 1.3%. The performer of the month is the Ford Kuga, potentially boosted by end-of-series rebates as the new generation is coming to dealerships soon. It is up 11 ranks on May to jump to #7 with 500 sales and 1.3% share, bringing it back to #13 year-to-date which is identical to its Full Year 2011 ranking and maintains Swizterland as the Kuga’s best country in the world.
Notice also the Suzuki SX4 up 16 spots to #12, the BMW X3 up one to #15, Hyundai i30 up 2 to #20 vs. #32 year-to-date, the VW Transporter up 28 to #22 and the Subaru XV up 15 to #25.
