The 3 Series is #9 and the 1 Series #10.

* See the Top 10 best-selling brands and models by clicking on the title *

New car sales in Luxembourg are up a reassuring 7% year-on-year in 2014 to 49,793 registrations, and Volkswagen keeps the lead of the brands ranking with 12.9% share. Helped by the success of the Captur, up to #7 this year, Renault is up two spots and 16% on 2013 to reclaims the 2nd spot it held in 2012 with just above 10% share. Audi is up 3% and BMW up 7% but both manufacturers are down one rank to #3 and #4 respectively, above Mercedes. Notice also Peugeot up 13% to 6th place. One very interesting particularity of the Luxembourg new car market is the extremely high prevalence of station wagons, accounting for just under 40% of all sales in 2014, thus competing for the title of most station wagon-friendly market in the world.

VW Golf Luxembourg 2014. Picture courtesy of largus.frThe VW Golf is the best-selling nameplate in Luxembourg in 2014.

Even more impressive, whereas the entire world is defecting from station wagons to SUVs, the station wagon market share was only 20% in Luxembourg a decade ago… In the models ranking, the VW Golf holds onto its crown as it does in neighbouring Belgium, Netherlands and Germany, ahead of the Audi A3 and Renault Scénic, making for a unique mix of German and French influences. The country’s wealth is clearly visible in the Top 10 best-selling models, with the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes A-Class also present. Note Renault places four nameplates inside the Top 8: the Scénic, Clio, Captur and Mégane  – a stronger performance than at home in France (4 in the Top 9).
