The Argentinean new car market is down year-on-year for the 5th consecutive month in October at -3% to 70,035 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 745,381 units, down 1% on 2011 which looks like it will retain the all-time volume record in Argentina for at least one more year. The Chevrolet Classic holds onto its top spot thanks to 2,859 sales and 4.1% sales, adding up to 36,096 units and 4.8% year-to-date. After lodging a best-ever third place last month, the Ford Ka improves further to hit a record #2 in October with 2,754 sales and 3.9%.
Excellent performance also for the VW Suran (aka SpaceFox), up 7 spots on September to #3 at 2,604 units and 3.7%, it’s the first time the model lands on the Argentinean podium in at least 2 years. The Toyota Hilux reclaims the pick-up crown at #7 with the Ford Ranger down to a still very impressive 10th place. Other great performers include the Chevrolet Celta up 6 ranks to #9, the Peugeot 308 up 3 to #14, its highest ever ranking in Argentina (also hit last July), the Fiat Qubo up 7 to #25 and the Citroen C3 Picasso up 13 to #37.
