I told you not to get too excited: after gaining an astounding 21% year-on-year last month, new car sales in Greece are back down to hell but this time the Greek gods are clement and make it fall by just 1% to 5,242 registrations. This brings the year-to-date total to 24,717 units, down 8% on 2012. For the 6th time in the last 12 months, the Toyota Yaris is the most popular model in the country thanks to 389 sales and 7.4%, and this time the VW Polo follows at an excellent 344 units and 6.6% with the Opel Corsa rounding up the podium with 247 sales and 4.4%.
The Nissan Micra makes it 4 small cars in the Top 4 like last month, up 17 spots on April while the VW Golf remains #5. In fact, there are only two compact cars in the Top 30 with the Toyota Auris at #10, the rest are either small or mini cars! Notice also the Ford Fiesta up 5 ranks to #6, the Lancia Ypsilon confirming Greece is its best overseas country, up 7 spots to #13, the Audi A3 up 8 to #15, the Suzuki Alto up 17 to #18, Chevrolet Spark up 29 to #21 and the Seat Leon up from outside the Top 50 to #25… Finally the Mercedes CLA makes its first appearance in the Greek ranking at a shiny 54th position.
