New car sales in Hungary gain 20% year-on-year in April to 8.061 units, lifting the year-to-date total up 17% to 27.760 deliveries. After years of sales dominated at 75-80% by fleet/company sales, this ratio fell to just 60.9% of the total sales this month, a good sign that private sales are starting to get a kick also. Suzuki reinforces its leadership even further with 973 sales and 12.1% share, almost two percentage points above the #2 Skoda, up two spots on March. Opel remains third, Ford drops two ranks to #4, Volkswagen stays 5th, Toyota gains one spot to #6 and Renault two to #7. Model-wise, the Suzuki Vitara is untouchable at 6.7% share above the Skoda Octavia (5.5%) while the VW Passat posts another excellent score in third position overall with 3.2% share. The Suzuki SX4 S-Croos (2.9%) makes it two Suzukis in the Top 5 and the Opel Astra K makes its very first appearance inside the Hungarian Top 10.
