Another very shy month for new car sales in Greece, down 42% in July both year-on-year to 5,757 registrations and year-to-date at 38,134 units... For the first time in at least 15 years, a Citroen manages to hold the pole position for 3 consecutive months: the C3 is #1 again this month with 327 sales and 5.7% thanks to aggressive pricing, and is now #3 year-to-date at 1,572 units and 4.1% vs. #22 over 2011. In fact the podium is unchanged on June with the Toyota Yaris #2 at 5.1% and the Opel Corsa #3 at 4.6%. Note the Opel Corsa is still leader year-to-date with 2,481 sales and 6.5% share.

Hyundai i10

Excellent performance of the Hyundai i10, up 7 spots on June to #5 with 212 sales and 3.7%, and now up to #8 year-to-date. The Seat Ibiza maintains itself within the Top 10 at #10, the Citroen C4 is also boosted by endearing prices, up 14 ranks to #12, the Peugeot 208 cuts its ranking in half compared to June at #13 with 1.9% share, the Chevrolet Spark jumps out of nowhere onto #18, the VW Up! breaks into the Greek Top 20 for the first time at #19, the VW Passat is up 32 ranks to #21 while the Audi A1 is up 17 to #29 and the Seat Leon is up to #30.

    The situation in Greece is horrible.SsangYong dealers give their cars for half the original price and until last year they also offered a small city car for free to anyone who bought a Rexton.Kia right now is doing the same thing that Citroen did and offers it`s cars at rediculusly low prices(for example Kia`s Sportage starts from 16,960 EUR and the Proceed starts from 9,300 EUR).Also notable in the sales charts is the fact that chinese companies also sell a small numbers of cars to greek consumers with the best selling one being the Lifan who has sold 7 cars until now.
