At 79,406 registrations in July, the Spanish car market is down ‘only’ 4% year-on-year but July 2010 was already a poor month. The 2011 total stands at 522,520 units and -24%… Seat continues to reap the benefits of its own scrappage scheme, the Seat-Plan E, placing the Ibiza #1 at 4.5% share (4% in 2011) and the Leon at #2 at 3.5% (up to #5 and 2.8% in 2011).

The French are in shape this month: the Renault Megane is up 4 spots to #3 with 2,629 sales and 3.3%, the Peugeot 207 is up 10 spots to #4 at 2,596 units and 3.3% also and the Peugeot 308 is 4 spots to #8 at 2.4%. The Nissan Qashqai is stable in 5th place and 3.2%, holding onto its 2nd position in 2011 overall at 3.1%.

Other good performers this month include the Kia Sportage up to #29, the Peugeot 508 breaking into the Top 30 at #30 with 765 sales and 1% share and the new Lancia Y up 99 spots to #70 at 291 units and 0.4%.

  1. Miguel, then I supose you’re saying the data I’m talking about are wrong, then you’re saying the data in this blog are wrong…

    I repeat, I’m Italian cars fan, I prefer FIAT Punto to SEAT Ibiza but it’s necesary make a special analysis (year 2010):

    FIAT Punto Classic + Grande Punto + Punto Evo (three different models added together!): #10 in Europe with 267,000 units. 155,000 of them were sold in Italy, then only 112,000 units in Europe outside Italy.

    SEAT Ibiza: #24 in Europe with 158,000 units. 40,000 of them were sold in Spain, then 118,000 units in Europe outside Spain.

    I don’t mind if SEAT Ibiza has poor sales in South Africa (and great sales in Mexico). I only said that you and Miguel Figueira are wrong when you say SEAT Ibiza has no success in another countries, and the data of this blog have proved it.

    If you don’t want to see it, I can’t do anything, but I don’t understand why you are questioning the data I wrote (taking from this blog).

  2. Pepi, I´m Portuguese and here in my country is hardly to see a Seat Ibiza. It´s not the second best selling car, that I assure you at 100%!!!!!!! Probably the 16th or 17th best selling car if it is. About the Fiat Punto you mentioned, do not forget that´s the 9th best selling car in Europe and best selling car in Italy since 1995!!!!!!!!!!! Even in coutries like South Africa where imported Italian cars are quite expensive the Punto sells about 120 unities per mounth!!!!! Do not compare the charismatic and funny Punto to the ugly duck Ibiza in in style, quality, reliability and sales!!

  3. I’m talking about its sales, I’m not talking about its price, quality, resale value or countries where it’s sold.

    You can see in this excellent blog:
    Austria (June): #4
    Greece (June): #7
    Portugal (full year 2010): #2
    Netherlands, Germany, France in top 30 with a great level of sales (considering it’s not a French or a German car)

    If this is not success for a car like SEAT Ibiza, then I don’t know what is.

    I’m not a fan of SEAT Ibiza, I prefer Italian cars like FIAT Punto… but you can see SEAT Ibiza sold more cars in Europa ouside Spain, than FIAT Punto in Europa outside Italy… but you see it’s on top10 and you think it’s a great success…

    I think you must forget your prejudices to talk about sales…

  4. The Ibiza was the 24th best seller in Europe last year. It has great sales in Greece, Netherlands, Switzerland, Portugal, Austria, and good sales in another countries (Germany, France, etc.)… so ‘only in Spain’ it’s a very big lie.

    Pepi, your comment was not polite at all. In fact the Ibiza is doing well only in Spain where it is sold at a quite competitive price. Resale value for this car is quite poor and there are lots of countries where it is not sold. In South Africa for instance, Seat had to pulled out of the market two years ago because of quite poor sales, some problems and weak resale value. the Ibiza sells well only in Spain and this is not a lie is a reality. Seat is not a great car marque.
