After India and Russia, it looks like traditional high-performer Brazil could also be starting to cough a little. New car sales are down year-on-year for the third fortnight in a row halfway through July, and not by a little at -13% to 145,854 registrations. The year-to-date total is still ahead of 2012 but just, at +3% to 1,853,670 units. The VW Gol holds onto its pole position at 7.1% share, but for the 2nd time this year after February, the Fiat Palio passes its little sister the Uno to rank #2 thanks to 7,896 sales and 5.4% vs. 7,446 and 5.1% for the Uno.

The Ford Fiesta delivers another excellent month thanks to the new generation at #4 with 5,874 units and 4%, followed by the Fiat Strada at a strong 3.7% and the Chevrolet Classic impressive at #6 and 3.5% vs. #11 and 2.6% year-to-date. The Hyundai HB20 is not done speaking yet: after falling to #11 in June, it is back up inside the Top 10 over the period at #8 and 3.4% vs 3.6% year-to-date while the Chevrolet Onix is down 3 spots to #10 and 3.1% vs. 3.4% ytd. Notice also the Hyundai HB20S up 2 to #22 and the Renault Fluence up 17 to #42.

    They sold half of what VW and Chevrolet have so far. It won’t happen. Maybe ( and that’s a BIG maybe ) they’ll get closer to that when they release their next gen Ka, which is supposed to be closer in concept to the Uno and Gol.

    I think Ford and Chevrolet made best cars, now. Toyota is not quality and safety
