Mexico April 2011: VW Clasico on top again!

VW Clasico

The Mexican car market is on the rise again this month with 65,246 registrations, up 8% year-on-year. For the second time this year, the VW Clasico (a restyled 3rd generation Jetta) takes the lead, but this time its advance on the Nissan Tsuru is sizeable: with 4,795 sales and 7.3% it towers above the Tsuru by 560 units and 0.8% share.

Would 2011 be the first year since 2003 the Nissan Tsuru is not the best selling year in Mexico? This will be a very interesting next few months to follow. At end-April, the Tsuru leads with 20,039 sales and 7.3% (+5%) ahead of the Clasico at 19,496 and 7.1% (+63%)…

In third place, the Nissan Tiida Sedan stays very strong at 5.8% share, well ahead of the Chevrolet Aveo, slightly weaker at 3.4%. The Chevrolet Chevy 3pts is up 4 spots at #6 and the Chevy 4 pts is back in the Top 10 at #9. The VW Nuevo Jetta is down 2 spots at #7.
