New car sales in Slovakia are up 9% year-on-year to 85.386 registrations, and we have a new market leader in the models ranking. Thanks to the new generation boosting sales up 34%, the Skoda Fabia reclaims the title of best-selling car in Slovakia it last held in 2012 off the Octavia (+9%), leader in 2013 and 2014. It is the 12th time in the past 16 years that the Fabia is #1 in Slovakia. The Skoda Rapid rounds up the podium for the third consecutive year but gains only 1%, resulting in a smaller share at 4.6%. Despite sales down 4%, the Kia Cee’d reclaims its foreigner crown off the VW Golf (-12%) with the Hyundai i30 (+7%) in tow.

Exceptional welcome for the Suzuki Vitara, landing directly in 7th place with 1.475 sales and 1.7% share, by far the most popular new entrant of 2015 ahead of the Hyundai Tucson (#41) and Mercedes GLE (#105) and, most impressively, already the #1 SUV in the country above the Kia Sportage (#11) and Skoda Yeti (#12). The Hyundai i20 (+42%) and Fiat Ducato (+21%) also shine in the Top 10, while outside let’s single out the VW Passat, up 39% to #13.
