The Austrian new car market is up 8% both in November at 30,339 registrations and year-to-date at 332,787 units. Volkswagen continues to dominate the models ranking head and shoulders and monopolises the podium again. The VW Golf is the best-seller for the 21st month in a row with 1,279 sales and 4.2%, reinforcing its 2011 leadership at 15,274 units and 4.6%.

The VW Polo stays #2 with 1,027 sales and 3.4%, adding up to 11,000 units and 3.3% year-to-date. This month’s best performer in Austria is the VW Tiguan again, improving on an already outstanding month of October to reach a very robust 2.8% market share thanks to 856 sales. It is now #13 year-to-date at 1.5%. The Skoda Octavia (#4) and Fabia (#5) exchange positions, both above their 2011 levels.

Further down the ranking, the VW Sharan is back in the Top 10 at #8, the Audi A1 reaches its best score ever in Austria (as it has done in Germany), up to #15 with 438 sales and 1.4%, the Hyundai ix35 is up 21 spots on October to #18 and the Kia Rio is up 13 ranks to #59.

  1. Miguel :@Tuga How, for God sake men!!!!! 8 VW Products in the 10 first places and you tell me that this is not manipulate???? Your comments are nonsense and quite sad!!!

    @Miguel

    From a random English online dictionary:

    “manipulation
    Definition
    controlling someone or something to your own advantage, often unfairly or dishonestly”

    So does this mean that Austrian people are obliged by the supreme VW powers to buy VAG cars even if they are not willing to? I think all users of this great blog have quite understood the fact that you don’t like Volkswagen, it’s your opinion and we all respect it. But we don’t need to be reminded on nearly every post, and claiming “manipulation” honestly makes no sense. To me, at least.

  2. Miguel :@Tuga How, for God sake men!!!!! 8 VW Products in the 10 first places and you tell me that this is not manipulate???? Your comments are nonsense and quite sad!!!

    Name calling and opinions are not facts, and don’t support your arguments.

    And if you think i’m rude and sad and nonsensical ( and other things too, from other threads ) from calling you out on your ” opinions “, well sir, that is your right to do so. It is also my right to keep at it, and i will.

  3. Miguel :@Tuga How, for God sake men!!!!! 8 VW Products in the 10 first places and you tell me that this is not manipulate???? Your comments are nonsense and quite sad!!!

    We live in a free world, but this is rude.

  4. @Pedro
    Pedro, is not hard to see that the rude person here is Tuga. I respect everybody and any marque. I only write my comments and I´m free to write what I feel and what I think. We all live in afree world!

  5. @ Miguel: i’m wondering what’s your problem ? don’t be surprised if nobody takes you serious here. try to accept other opinions. i for example don’t like ford or fiat, but i can live with the fact that you do.

    on topic: count the toyota-models in the japan-top 20 or fiat-group-models in italy-top 20 oder vauxhalls in uk-top 20 and tell us what you think about that ? manipulation or just peoples choice like in austria ?

    1. Hey Miguel.
      I have to say I’m getting a little tired of your ‘evil VW’ comments.
      If Ford had 8 models in any country’s monthly Top 10 you’d call it an amazing performance.
      VAG having 8 models in the Austrian Top 10 is simply an amazing performance, meaning they have nailed the product/brand differentiation/marketing mix to maximise sales on all 4 brands for most models.
      Nothing more, nothing less.

  6. Renault is quite strong in Austria. But Peugeot and Citroën are very bad…only two models in the top 50.

    Markets without national industries are often interesting…but this one is really boring…5 VAG in the five first ranks, and 8 in the top 10…

  7. Miguel :In fact VW was born in Austria!

    If by that you mean that Ferry Porsche copied the original Type 60 designs off some Tatra that happened to be designed by an Austrian ( and really, how can that NOT be what you meant, lol ) then yes. Yes it was.

    By that same, ahem, ” logic “, VW is the reason Hitler invaded Czechoslovakia. Oooh, that evil VW… *shakes fist into the air
