Traditionally dominated by compact cars (Golf, Astra, Auris), this year the Greek market is led by minis: with 5.2% market share, the VW Polo is #1 in October whereas the Toyota Yaris is #1 in the year-to-date ranking with 4.2%. In fact, the Top 5 year-to-date is 100% minis with the Ford Fiesta #2, the Opel Corsa #3, the Polo #4 and the Fiat Panda #5.
