New car sales in Luxembourg are up a reassuring 7% year-on-year in 2014 to 49,793 registrations, and Volkswagen keeps the lead of the brands ranking with 12.9% share. Helped by the success of the Captur, up to #7 this year, Renault is up two spots and 16% on 2013 to reclaims the 2nd spot it held in 2012 with just above 10% share. Audi is up 3% and BMW up 7% but both manufacturers are down one rank to #3 and #4 respectively, above Mercedes. Notice also Peugeot up 13% to 6th place. One very interesting particularity of the Luxembourg new car market is the extremely high prevalence of station wagons, accounting for just under 40% of all sales in 2014, thus competing for the title of most station wagon-friendly market in the world.
The VW Golf is the best-selling nameplate in Luxembourg in 2014.
Even more impressive, whereas the entire world is defecting from station wagons to SUVs, the station wagon market share was only 20% in Luxembourg a decade ago… In the models ranking, the VW Golf holds onto its crown as it does in neighbouring Belgium, Netherlands and Germany, ahead of the Audi A3 and Renault Scénic, making for a unique mix of German and French influences. The country’s wealth is clearly visible in the Top 10 best-selling models, with the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes A-Class also present. Note Renault places four nameplates inside the Top 8: the Scénic, Clio, Captur and Mégane – a stronger performance than at home in France (4 in the Top 9).

Still no models info available for Luxembourg (if you have any please get in touch!) but the brands ranking in September is eventful enough to warrant an update here. The new car market in Luxembourg resists well in September at just -4% year-on-year to 3,340 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 39,090 units, down 1% on 2011. While Volkswagen keeps the lead by far over 9 months with 5,032 sales and 13.2% share, in September BMW is the most popular brand in Luxembourg thanks to an astounding 555 units and 16.6% share!
This could be explained by a combination of weak Golf sales for the month (in anticipation of the 7th gen on sale later this year) and both the BMW 1 and 3 Series now reaching cruising sales levels. Thanks to this spectacular performance in September, BMW passes Audi to now rank #2 year-to-date at 3,872 units and 9.9% vs. 3,647 and 9.3% for Audi. Mercedes also delivers a very solid month: up to #3 in September with 280 sales and 8.4%. Year-to-date, Renault ranks #4 followed by Peugeot, Mercedes and Citroen.

No model detail is available but the market is pretty dynamic with 20.189 sales in 8 months, a 5.32% increase over 2009.
Good results for the VW Polo, Golf and Passat, all in the Top10 apparently, as well as the Renault Scenic and Megane, the Audi A4, BMW 5 Series, Peugeot 3008 and Mercedes E Class.
That’s all the detail I could get, so if anyone has access to more info regarding models please click above the picture and leave a comment !
