The Austrian new car market is down 5% year-on-year in August to 24,570 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 239,796 units, down 1% on 2011. While last month the Volkswagen Group (VAG) placed 7 models in the Top 8, in August its domination is even more extensive… For the third consecutive time, the Austrian podium is 100% Volkswagen: the Golf leads the way with 1.237 sales and 5% share, ahead of the Polo at 1,032 and 4.2% and the Tiguan at 704 and 2.9%, replicating the 2012 year-to-date ranking.

7 of the 8 models that follow are part of the VAG Group, making it 10 VAG models in the Top 11! The Seat Ibiza is up 4 spots on July to #4 with 519 units and 2.1%, the Skoda Octavia is down one to #6, the Audi A4 down 3 to #7, the VW Sharan up 4 to #8, the VW Passat up 4 to #9, the VW Bus up 13 to #10 and the Audi A3 stable at #11. Note there are 18 VAG models in the Top 30 this month. Year-to-date, the VAG domination is also striking, monopolising with the entire Top 6 with the Golf, Polo, Tiguan, Octavia, Fabia and Ibiza on top.

The Hyundai i20 is the only non-VAG model in the Top 11!

The only non-VAG model in the Top 11 this month is the Hyundai i20, up 5 ranks to a fantastic 5th place with 465 sales and 1.9%. Other great performers in August in Austria include the Peugeot 208 up 5 to #13, Kia Rio up from outside the Top 50 to #15 vs. #32 year-to-date, the Seat Leon up 25 spots to #20 vs. #50 year-to-date, the Seat Altea up 17 to #21 vs. #47 and the Mercedes C-Class up 10 to #30 vs. #58.
