Very stable new car market in Belgium in 2014: down 0.6% to 482,939 registrations – excluding LCVs. Volkswagen is master in command once again despite sales down 2% to 49,103 deliveries for a 10.2% market share. The 3 Frenchies follow like in 2013: Renault (-3%), Peugeot (-1%) and Citroen (-5%) while BMW gains one spot thanks to sales actually up 1% on 2013 to 32,012, overtaking Opel (-5%). Audi is up 2%, Mercedes up 3%, Hyundai and Toyota both up 7%, Skoda up 14% to #12, Dacia up 3%, Volvo up 4%, Suzuki up 17%, Porsche up 53%, Jeep up 104%, Tesla up 252% and Maserati up 453%.
The VW Golf remains the most popular nameplate in the country by far with 17,940 sales and 3.7% share (this figure includes the Sportsvan for now and will be split as soon as available), illustrating the extreme fragmentation of the Belgian new car market: no other nameplate manages to hold more than 2.2% share. The BMW 3 Series and Renault Clio shine on the podium, followed by the VW Polo, Fiat 500/500L and Audi A3 while the Hyundai ix35 delivers its first-ever annual Top 10 ranking in Belgium at #9. Notice also the Peugeot 2008 at #13, Renault Captur at #16, Dacia Duster at #18 and Volvo V40 at #21.
