The Brazilian new car market is taking a breather in November, down 3% year-on-year to 297,031 registrations, however the year-to-date total is still frankly in positive territory at 3,290,698 units, up 6% on 2011. Thanks to the facelifted model, the VW Gol improves to 8.6% share this month at 25,591 sales, adding up to 265,262 units and 8.1% year-to-date. The Fiat Uno continues to slide down to 6.3% share, now only 0.5% above the Fiat Palio stable at 5.8%. The Fiat Siena is up to 3.9% and misses the 4th spot for just 70 sales...

Chevrolet Onix

Now that we've cleared the very top of the ranking, to the biggest event of the month in Brazil and potentially the world: improving on its #10 spot at mid-month, the locally produced Hyundai HB20 is up a brilliant 19 ranks on October to break into the monthly Top 10 for the first time for a Hyundai in Brazil at #9 with 8,077 sales and 2.7%. The HB20 single-handedly pushes Hyundai up to #6 carmaker in the country at 14,111 units and 4.7% vs. #9 and 2.8% year-to-date...


The other big Brazilian event in November is the Chevrolet Onix already knocking at the Top 10's door, up a huge 101 spots on October to land at #11 with 7,409 sales and 2.5% for its first full month in market. Expect the Onix to break into the Brazilian monthly Top 10 as early as next month. Further down the ranking, notice the Chevrolet Cruze HB up 7 spots to #40, the Toyota Etios HB also up 7 to #49, the Etios Sedan up 9 to #68, the new gen VW Fusca (aka Beetle) up 36 to #90, the Chevrolet Trailblazer landing at #146 and the JAC J2 selling its first 20 units.

    Trailblazer position is due to the pricing scheme, making it top version more expensive than an Range Rover Evoque.

    With the same money, I don’t know of anyone in their senses that would buy an GM instead of a Land Rover…

    I’m very happy with the November sales. It seems to make more sense. Etios going further down the list (what a heck of a nonsense car!) and HB20 and Onix skyrocketing way up into the first ten. They deserve that ’cause they are better cars compared to their competition. I would just love to see them among the five, ’cause then, other unawere people will start to see the popular automobile world goes much beyond than a Uno, Palio, Logan, Sandero, Clio, Gol and Voyage (argh). Years since last time I saw something plausible happening in the first 10 positions.
