The Polish new car market soars 17% year-on-year in January to 41.962 registrations. After dropping to an uncharacteristic third place in December, traditional market leader Skoda reclaims the top spot its held over the Full Year 2016 in spite of trailing the market at just +13% to 5.337 sales and 12.7% share. Toyota (+30%) and Volkswagen (+28%) follow, with Opel (+14%), Ford (+15%), Renault (+4%) and Kia (+7%) in tow but more timid. Fiat (+41%), Peugeot (+33%), Mercedes (+24%) and Hyundai (+23%) post the largest year-on-year gains among the remaining carmakers in the Top 15. Model-wise, the Skoda Fabia overtakes the traditional leader the Octavia to take the lead, both nameplates gaining 7% on their January 2016 score and therefore losing market share. The Opel Astra (+30%) confirms it has settled on the Polish podium, distancing the Toyota Yaris (+14%), VW Golf (+18%), Toyota Auris (+10%) and Skoda Rapid (+22%). The Hyundai Tucson soars 27% to #10 but the big event atop the Polish sales charts this month is the arrival of the Toyota C-HR at #11, up 29 spots on last month. The Fiat Tipo is the other recently launch to elbow its way into the Top 20, up 13 ranks on December to #16.
