The Argentinean new vehicle market is up by a solid 10.9% year-on-year in September to 78.889 registrations, lifting the year-to-date total up 28.3% to 700.348 units, only the second time in history that sales cross the 700.000 units after just 9 months along with 2013 (752.724). Market leaders Volkswagen (+23%) and Chevrolet (+20%) double the overall growth to improve their shares to 16.3% and 14.5% respectively. Ford (+2%) and Renault (-11%) on the other hand lose share but Fiat (+20%), Citroen (+27%), Honda (+33%) and most strikingly Nissan (+95%) impress. Outside the Top 10, Iveco (+47%), Chery (+50%), Subaru (+78%), Jeep (+118%), DS (+126%) and Lifan (+349%) are the most dynamic, making it two Chinese brands inside the Argentinean Top 20.

In the models ranking, the VW Gol Trend celebrates its 7th win in the past 8 months with deliveries up 57% to 6% share vs. 4.8% so far in 2017. It is followed like in August by the Chevrolet Onix up 4-fold on September 2016 and the Renault Sandero up 62%. The Toyota Etios (+30%) completes a Top 4 vastly outperforming the market. In fact, the Toyota Hilux (-7%) and Fiat Palio (+4%) are the only Top 10 nameplates not posting a double-digit gain: the Chevrolet Prisma (+188%), Ford Ka (+83%), Peugeot 208 (+67%) and VW Amarok (+24%) all impress. Further down, notice the VW Up up 52% (boosted by the new Pepper variant), the Fiat Toro up 70% to #14 (its highest ranking so far in Argentina), the Fiat Mobi up 122% to #17, the Chevrolet Cruze up 80% and the Jeep Renegade up 113%.

Argentinean new vehicle sales are up a splendid 21.3% year-on-year in August to 84.687 units, meaning the year-to-date total is now up an equally impressive 30.2% to 604.478 registrations, the second highest result at this stage of the year below the 669.607 units sold in the first eight months of 2013. Brand-wise, Volkswagen is back to the #1 spot it holds year-to-date thanks to a 26% surge to 15.6% share, distancing Renault at 14% (+8%), Chevrolet at 13.7% (+21%) and Ford at 11.8% (+10%). Below, Mercedes (+36%), Citroen (+49%), Honda (+63%), Nissan (+68%), Volvo (+81%), Chery (+101%) and Jeep (+165%) are among the most dynamic in the Top 20 while Lifan (+256%) and DS (+227%) dominate smaller brands. In the models ranking, the VW Gol Trend holds onto the top spot thanks to deliveries up 55% year-on-year, but in 2nd place the Chevrolet Onix is catching up at +111%, ahead of the Renault Sandero up 77% and the Peugeot 208 up 67%. The Renault Oroch – a Duster pickup – is up one spot on July to break into the Argentinean Top 10 for the very first time at #10 thanks to sales up 81%.

New car sales in Argentina continue to gallop ahead with July up 26% year-on-year to 78.025 registrations and the year-to-date tally up a whopping 32% to 519.791 units. For the first time this year, Renault takes control of the brands ranking thanks to deliveries up 30% to 15% share, a full two percentage points above its YTD level. Volkswagen (+22%) is knocked down to 2nd place, Ford (+18%) is up one spot on June to #3 and Chevrolet (+6%) is down two to #4. Inside the Top 10, Honda (+101%), Citroen (+57%), Peugeot (+33%), Mercedes (+32%) and Fiat (+28%) all beat the market. Further down, the manufacturers advancing faster than the market are numerous. Among them, Lifan (+683%), DS (+315%), Volvo (+178%), Jeep (+127%), Chery (+75%), Iveco (+64%) and Audi (+54%) fare particularly well.

In the models ranking, the VW Gol (+58%), leader year-to-date, edges back above the Renault Sandero (+145%), leader in June, by just 32 units. The Toyota Hilux (+1%) rounds up the podium and sees its market share suffer significantly compared to a year ago. The Peugeot 208 (+64%) and Ford Ka (+49%) are the only other nameplates beating the market inside the Top 10. The Renault Duster Oroch pickup shoots up 109% year-on-year and 11 spots on June to end the month at #11, only 102 units from a first-ever Top 10 ranking in Argentina – and the world. This performance enables the Oroch to overtake the Duster year-to-date at 9.126 units (_151%) vs. 8.921 (+63%). The Fiat Mobi advances five spots on last month to #15 and the Toro is down 4 to #21: these two nameplates haven’t been met with the same success as in Brazil so far. The Nissan Kicks lands directly at #74 for its first month on sale in the country.

New car sales in Argentina are up a flamboyant 47% year-on-year in June to 76.210 registrations, lifting the half-year total up 33% to 441.766 units, still on track to achieve the second best ever annual volume in Argentinean history below the all-time record of 955.023 hit back in 2013. The Top two manufacturers in the country frankly beat an already explosive market growth: Volkswagen is up 60% to 15.2% share while Chevrolet is up 80% to 14.2%. They are followed by Renault (+33%) and Ford (+25%) while Fiat (+49%), Honda (+167%), Nissan (+78%), Jeep (+198%), Chery (+74%) and Hyundai (+54%) among the most dynamic.

Model-wise, after ranking #2 in January, March and April the Renault Sandero celebrates its very first pole position in Argentina thanks to sales shooting up 159% year-on-yea to 3.930 and 5.2% share. It distances the VW Gol Trend (+165%) and Chevrolet Onix (+114%) all in exceptional shape. The Toyota Hilux on the other hand – the #1 vehicle in Argentina in 2016 – is down 4% to 4th place. Below, the Toyota Etios (+72%), Chevrolet Prisma (+186%) and Peugeot 208 (+59%) also beat the market. Further down, the Fiat Toro is stable at #17, the Fiat Mobi is down 6 spots on May to #20 and the Peugeot 301 breaks into the Top 50 for the first time at #48.

The previous generation Chevrolet Onix remains on sale in Argentina as the Onix Joy 

* See the Top 43 All-brands and Top 210 All-models by clicking on the titlAfter a soft 6% gain in April, the Argentinean new car market is back to double-digit year-on-year gains for the 4th time this year at a splendid +28% to 75.570 registrations. The year-to-date tally is up an even more impressive 30% to 365.556 units. At this rate, 2017 will be the second biggest year for new car sales in Argentina below the all-time record of 955.023 hit back in 2013. Brand leader Volkswagen follows the market at +29% to 15.9% share, slightly below its YTD level of 16.6%, and the brands ranking is once again exceptionally stable with the Top 11 unchanged on April (and March). Chevrolet (+53%) and Fiat (+40%) beat the market but Ford (+10%), Renault (+12%), Toyota (+12%), Peugeot (+4%) and Citroen (+15%) all underperform. It’s below that we witness extravagant gains: Honda (+188%) and Mercedes (+54%) round up the Top 10 while just outside, Nissan (+93%), Jeep (+120%), BMW (+132%), Hyundai (+365%), Audi (+109%) and Volvo (+100%) all post spectacular improvements. Chinese Lifan (+330%) continues to climb, ranking just outside the Top 20.

The Ford Ka ranks third in May and sixth year-to-date. 

Over in the models ranking, we witness a concentration process towards most popular nameplates, with the top five best-sellers each more than doubling their sales year-on-year, an extremely rare feat. The VW Gol confirms it has reclaimed its hold on the Argentinean market with close to 4.000 sales this month and 16.808 year-to-date (+47%). The Gol led the Argentinean sales charts in 2014 and 2015 before being toppled by the Toyota Hilux last year. The Chevrolet Onix jumps 197% year-on-year and 3 spots on last month to #2, with sales split almost evenly between the previous generation, renamed Joy (1.650), and the current one (1.517). The Ford Ka is up 157% to #3 and now ranks #6 year-to-date, the Renault Sandero is up 118% to #4 and climbs to #2 YTD and the Chevrolet Prisma is up 273% to #5. Market leader at the same time last year, the Toyota Hilux (-18%) is down to #6 this month and #3 year-to-date. Among recent launches, the Fiat Mobi (#14) and Toro (#17) hit record rankings in Argentina (in the case of the Mobi also hit last month), the Peugeot 301 flies off to #60 vs. #154 in April and we welcome the Audi Q2 at #142.

The Argentinean new vehicle market continues to fare well so far this year yet April results are a little shyer at +6% on a year ago to 63.091 sales, leading to a year-to-date tally up 31% to 289.986. The brands ranking shows exceptional stability with the Top 11 best-sellers identical to March. Volkswagen ends the month in pole position by a large margin: four percentage points of market share separate it from the #2 Chevrolet. Both manufacturers beat the market with a 9% improvement. The next three carmakers do better with double-digit gains: Ford (+12%), Renault (+11%) and Fiat (+14%) shine whereas Toyota (-15%), Peugeot (-26%) and Citroen (-19%) struggle. This month many brands manage very impressive year-on-year gains, among them Honda (+81%), Mercedes (+48%), Hyundai (+291%), Kia (+44%), BMW (+113%), Audi (+46%), Volvo (+103%) an Lifan (+516%) in order of ranking.

Model-wise, the VW Gol posts a third consecutive month in pole position thanks to sales up 20%, yet the next best-sellers show vastly more dynamic gains: the Renault Sandero is up 170% to rank 2nd for the second straight month and the Ford Ka up 166% to third place. Below the Toyota Hilux down 26%, the Chevrolet Onix (+137%) and Prisma (+209%) also impress. The Fiat Palio (-11%), VW Amarok (-18%) and Ford Focus (-19%) disappoint Among recent launches, the Fiat Mobi is up two spots on March to #14, the Fiat Toro does the same at #23 and the Renault Captur also at #32. We welcome the Peugeot 301 at #154.

Volkswagen remains the most popular carmaker, beating the market with a 22% gain to 10.168 units and 17.8%.

Ford (+13%), Toyota (+18%) and Peugeot (+28%) follow.

Model-wise, the VW Gol snaps the pole position for the first time since last August, extending a stretch f February top spots that goes back to 2015. The Gol gains 28%, distancing the Hilux (+36%), Renault Sandero (+249% now that the Clio Mio is well and truly discontinued) and Toyota Etios (+35%), making the entire Top 4 frankly above market growth. The Chevrolet Onix (+57%), VW Suran (+142%), Peugeot 208 (+50%), Chevrolet Prisma (+64%) and Renault Kangoo (+107%) also take off, all within the Top 10. Among recent launches, the Renault Duster Oroch (#27), Fiat Mobi (#30) and Toro (#34) dominate but remain a fair way from the top and clearly below the rankings they are reaching in neighbouring Brazil.

The Argentinean new vehicle market is up by a robust 10% year-on-year in 2016 to 709.482 units, still a far way off the all-time record of 955.023 hit back in 2013. Volkswagen remains the most popular manufacturer in the country and the only one with six-digit sales figures in 2016 at 108.463 despite losing 8% on 2015. But Chevrolet (+16%)  and most impressively Renault (+28%) are both catching up fast, ending 2016 only a few hundred sales short off 100.000.

The Fiat Palio is up 11% and 3 spots to #3, the Renault Clio Mio is up 18% to #4 and even led the overall ranking in December even though it is now discontinued.

Further down, the Chevrolet Onix is up 62% to #13, the Renault Nuevo Sandero up 73% to #15 and Chevrolet Prisma up 55% to #19.
