The Slovak new car market is down a tiny 0.1% year-on-year in January, but with more woking days than in January 2016 this actually translates into quite a significant decline. The Skoda Octavia reclaims the Top spot off its little sister the Skoda Fabia for the month at 414 units vs 356, with the Rapid rounding up a podium 100% Skoda. The Opel Astra is the best-selling non-Skoda in January at #4 ahead of the Kia Cee’d. Excellent performance of the Skoda Superb up 46% to #6, but none better than the VW Polo up 115% to #8. Already out of fashion (?), the Suzuki Vitara (-33%) and Hyundai Tucson (-25%) round up a Top 10 composed at 60% of Volkswagen Group nameplates.
