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%.

VW Suran (aka SpaceFox)

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.

    If I’ve worked it out right, the Gol Power is the outgoing design, and the Gol Trend is the new design. Is that it?

    Fiat is losing market share in this important market. To understand what happened to Fiat-Chrysler during the third quarter of 2012, come and see the easy analysis I made about the results of that period
