The Polish new light vehicle market is up 12.6% year-on-year in February, lifting the year-to-date tally to 85.076 units, up 14.8% on the same period a year ago. The big surprise this month is the pole position of Toyota in the brands ranking. It is the first time since BSCB has been following the Polish market in 2010 that Toyota achieves this ranking – and potentially the first time ever. The Japanese manufacturer frankly outpaces the market with deliveries up 22% year-on-year to 4.771 units for a 11.1% market share, outselling Skoda at 4.525 (+3%) and Volkswagen at 3.978 (+19%). Toyota places the Auris at #4 (+9%), the Yaris at #5 (-13%) but most significantly it is the success of the C-HR at #11 for the second month running with 723 sales that enables Toyota to take the brands lead.

Further down the brands charts, Renault (+20%), Opel (+22%), BMW (+24%), Fiat (+37%) and Dacia (+44%) all progress faster than the overall market while Peugeot (-8%) is the only brand in negative territory inside the Top 15. Model-wise, the Skoda Octavia reclaims the top spot despite sales down 6% year-on-year and should see its volume improve now that the facelift is hitting Polish dealerships, yet this month it is only 10 units above the Opel Astra (+28%) and 20 above the Skoda Fabia (+18%). Other great gainers this month include the Renault Clio (+83%), Dacia Duster (+24%), Toyota RAV4 (+43%), Opel Corsa (+47%), Renault Clio (+83%), Megane (+84%) and Volvo XC60 (+128%). The Honda HR-V makes its 2nd ever apparition inside the Polish Top 10 after last April (#44) at a record #39.

* See the Top 15 brands and Top 50 models by clicking on the title *

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.
