The Belgian new car market is down 4% year-on-year in January to 52,992 registrations including LCV. Big surprise atop the models ranking: the Audi A3 jumps 16 spots on December to simply take the overall lead thanks to 1,234 sales and 2.3% share, that’s 11 units above its “mass-market” sister the VW Golf down to #2. As a reminder, the A3 ranked #7 over the Full Year 2014 in Belgium and could aim at a podium ranking in 2015. The A3 hatch/sedan sales split for January is 71/29. With only 4 nameplates securing at least 2% share, the Belgian market is one of the most fragmented in the world and logically sees large variations month-on-month.

Below the Renault Clio and Opel Corsa, the Mercedes C-Class shines at #5 as does the Peugeot 308 at #7 while the Volvo V40 is up 16 ranks on last month to crack the Top 10 at #10. Further down, the BMW 1 Series is up 28 spots to #13, the Hyundai i20 up 41 to #21, the Mini up 32 to #22, BMW 4 Series up 32 to #28 and the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer up 60 ranks to break into the Belgian Top 50 for the first time at #47.
