According to data provided by SEMO Cyprus and analysed by INNOSOFT, new car sales in Cyprus are up 17% year-to-date over the first 9 months of 2014 to 6,350 units, including 683 registrations in September alone, up 31% on the same month in 2013, so great trends all round here. The year-to-date models ranking experiences one change in the Top 8 compared to last month: below the Toyota Yaris, Nissan Qashqai and Ford Fiesta, the Honda CR-V overtakes the Volvo XC60 to reclaim the #4 spot. In September, the Toyota RAV4 brilliantly takes the lead of the overall sales charts thanks to 45 units sold, followed by the Ford Fiesta, Nissan Qashqai, Nissan Juke (now #10 year-to-date) and Nissan Note (now #18 ytd). Notice also the Renault Captur up to #21 so far in 2014 and now distinctly above the Clio as the brand’s best-seller in Cyprus, and Mercedes placing 3 models inside the year-to-date Top 30 vs. just one last month: the CLA at #27, E Class at #28 and C Class at #30.

Thanks to data provided by SEMO Cyprus and Analysis by INNOSOFT, I can share with you today a detailed models ranking for Cyprus. After dropping by a very heavy 32% over the Full Year 2013, new car sales in Cyprus are down another 6% over Q1 2013 to just 1,374 registrations. Annual leader in 2011, 2012 and 2013, the Ford Fiesta is down to #2 so far in 2014 with 74 sales and 5.4% share, passed by the Toyota Yaris at a flamboyant 7% market share thanks to 96 units sold. Up from #14 in 2013, the Honda CR-V brilliantly rounds up the podium with 57 sales and 4.1%.

Jaguar XF Cyprus March 2014The Jaguar XF is up to #16 in Q1 2013 in Cyprus!

Due to the small size of the market, we have a few luxury models strikingly making their way into the year-to-date Top 30 over the period: the Range Rover is up to 7th overall with 3.1% share, the Jaguar XF ranks 16th with 1.9% of the market and the Mercedes CLA is #22 with 1.2%. Notice also the Toyota Corolla up to #9 with 3% share and the Renault Captur up to #19 and 1.5%.

* NOW UPDATED with actuals for the Top 30 best-selling models! *

Today I give you Cyprus data, very rare but now about to become a monthly fixture on BSCB thanks to data provided by SEMO Cyprus / Analysis by INNOSOFT. Well you thought Greece, Spain or Portugal was in bad shape this year, wait till you see the Cypriot new car market: down a very harsh 32% year-on-year in 2013 to just 7,102 registrations, the worse performing European car market this year, no less. Add to this an increased fragmentation of the models sales charts and expectedly it’s a bit of a nightmare in the models ranking. The leader, the Ford Fiesta, remains the same, but loses 53% to 407 sales and 5.7% share, dropping ‘only’ 36% earns the Nissan Qashqai two spots up to 2nd place at 378 units and 5.3% and the Toyota Yaris rounds up the podium at -44% and 4.9% share.

Toyota Auris Cyprus 2013The Toyota Auris is up 29% in 2013 in Cyprus.

In fact only three models in the Top 10 gain ground year-on-year: the VW Golf is up 6% and 4 spots to #4 with 250 sales and 3.5%, the Toyota Auris is up a magnificent 29% and 6 ranks to equal 5th at 241 units and 2.4% and the Kia Rio up an even more impressive 44% to #10. The Nissan Juke manages to gain one spot to place #5, the Renault Clio is up 346% to #12 thanks to the 4th generation, the Honda CR-V is up 33% to #14, Ford Kuga up to #17, Mercedes A-Class up to #20 and the Mercedes ML-Class is up 39% to #26, making it no less than 4 Mercedes in the Top 30!
