According to Central European market data specialists www.ceauto.co.hu, 1,524 new cars found a buyer in Serbia in October, bringing the year-to-date total to 17,129 deliveries. The Skoda Fabia is toppled off its throne by its larger stablemate the Octavia, leader in Serbia this month with 5.3% share but still #3 YTD. The Fiat 500L, produced locally, remains #2 both in October and YTD while the Fabia is down to #3 but holds onto the YTD crown, the only nameplate selling over 1,000 units so far this year in the country. Below the Fiat Ducato still strong at #4, the Lada Niva tells everyone it’s not dead yet by ranking at an impressive #5 with 3.1% share, making Serbia one of the last countries in the world along with Russia where the 37-year old design is still enjoying relative success…

Thanks to Central European market data specialists www.ceauto.co.hu, I can share with you a models ranking for Serbia over the Full Year 2013, when the market is down 4% to 22,499 registrations. Serbia is a great example of a country where ‘buying local’ is important. If last year the Fiat Punto Classic, produced at the Fiat Srbija plant in Kragujevac, topped the sales charts, this year it is the Fiat 500L, also produced in Kragujevac, that grabs the top spot. This makes Serbia the first country in the world the Fiat 500L has managed to top so far. It sells 2,061 units for a massive 9.2% share, while the Punto is down 36% to 1,240 units and 5.5%. The Skoda Fabia (-30%) round up the podium and is one of 3 Skodas in the Top 5 with the Octavia at #4 and Yeti at #5.
