Romania October 2010: 3 Dacias in Top 4!

The Romanian market is starting to recover from a catastrophic start in 2010 (-85% in January vs. ’09!): October is at +9% with 8,281 sales, with the Year-to-date figure still down 27% with 70,629 registrations.

No surprises on top: the Dacia Logan is king with 27.7% of the market, very close to its YTD figure (18,960 sales at 26.8%). The Skoda Octavia is very solid in #2 with 6.7% (YTD: 4,375 sales and 6.2%) and was #2 in 6 out of the last 8 months.

Dacia places its 3 models in the Top 4 this month: the Duster is 3rd with 4.6% (#5 YTD at 3.7%). Its best month-to-date is August at #2 and 8.8%. The Sandero is 4th with 3.7%, which actually is its best month of the year: it has failed to shine up until now with a weak 8th spot YTD at 2.5%.

Very strong in 5th is the Renault Symbol, #3 YTD at 3.9%, it even spent 3 months above 5% market share this year. The Astra, Golf and Aveo follow. Exceptional performance of the Hyundai ix35: 11th in October (up from 30th in September) with 1.8% of the market.
