New car sales in Switzerland continue to evolve slightly lower than last year: down 2% in April to 27,804 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 96,199 units, down 4% on 2013. The Volkswagen Group monopolises the Top 5 this month with the VW Golf at #1 followed by the Skoda Octavia, VW Polo, Audi A3 and VW Tiguan. The Subaru XV is up a huge 26 spots on March to land in 6th place with 419 sales and 1.5% share, its best ranking in the country since last August, while the Toyota Auris is up 28 to #7 at 380 units and 1.4%.
Other great performers in Switzerland this month include the BMW X3 up 19 ranks on March to #10, the Suzuki Swift up a mammoth 49 to #15, Subaru Forester up 48 to #18, the BMW 4 Series breaking into the Swiss Top 50 for the first time at #49 and the Porsche Macan breaking into the Top 100 at #91 for its first full month of sales – here too instantly becoming Porsche’s best-seller. Finally notice the Peugeot 2008 and Renault Captur stuck at a paltry #57 and #66 respectively, a far cry from their rankings in neighbouring France in a country that seemed like the perfect fit for these formats. Strange.
