It’s still not looking good in Romania this month, with new car sales down 31% year-on-year in September to 4,736 registrations, which brings the year-to-date total to 49,128 units, down 12% on 2011. The Dacia Logan leads the way for the 97th consecutive month with a so-so 15.9% market share and 752 sales, figures that should get a boost when the second generation of the model goes on sale locally in November. Both the Skoda Octavia (5.6%) and Dacia Duster (3.9%) lodge shares below their 2012 year-to-date level.

Solid month for the Toyota Yaris up 5 ranks to #12 and the Hyundai i20 up 7 to #13. The VW Up! and Dacia Lodgy both break into the Romanian Top 20 for the very first time, respectively at #14 with 65 sales and 1.4% (+12) and #20 with 54 units and 1.1% (+34).
