I wish I could finally give you good news about the Greek new car market, but unfortunately it is still not the case in September, with sales down 42% year-on-year to 3,463 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 45,530, down 43% on 2011 which was already down 35% on 2010… This month the Opel Corsa reclaims the pole position it already holds in the year-to-date ranking, selling 241 units for a 7% market share compared to 2,992 and 6.1% ytd. It is the 6th time in the last 12 month the Corsa ranks #1 in Greece and the first time since last March.

VW Up!

The Toyota Yaris, leader in August, is down to #2 with 187 sales and 5.4%, followed by the VW Polo at 3.9%, the Ford Fiesta at 3.5% and the Toyota Auris, improving on an already great month of August to #5 at 113 units and 3.3% vs. #12 year-to-date. 3 other models impress in the Top 10 this month: the VW Up! is up 12 spots to a record #6 with 103 sales and 6%, the Hyundai i20 is up 8 to #7 and 2.6% and the Peugeot 208 breaks into the Greek Top 10 for the first time, up 2 ranks to #9 at 86 units and 2.5%.

Other good performers this month in Greece include the Kia Rio us 21 spots to #11, the Ford Focus up 10 to #13, the BMW 1 Series up 21 to #21, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta up 28 to #22, the Mercedes B-Class up 46 to #24, the Mitsubishi Lancer up to #27, the Hyundai i30 up 13 to #31, the Skoda Citigo breaking into the Top 50 for the first time, up 20 ranks to #34 and the Citroen DS3 up 14 to #43.

  1. Ok Bill, Clio was an example, same thing can be for other models like, for example, Audi A3 and new A3, or Bmw 1er old and new and others models,

    Certainly isn’t for your fault this different type of treatment but from who give us official numbers from Greece. 😉

  2. @Marc

    SEAA registers Panda + New Panda separately and that’s the right thing to do in my opinion.
    As for Renault Clio, all September sales refers to Clio 3. New model (Clio 4) isn’t out on sale yet in Greece.

  3. If nr. of Renault Clio contains new and old models,
    I think same treatment must be used for Fiat Panda,
    so Total of PANDA II + New PANDA is 80 and model is on 11th position, not 19
