The Finnish new car market is down a horrid 28% year-on-year in January to 10,167 registrations. The Nissan Qashqai confirms it is the country’s favourite vehicle and amazingly delivers its 7th consecutive month in pole position thanks to 486 sales and 4.8% share. The VW Golf (4.6%), Toyota Avensis (4.3%) and Ford Focus (3%) follow while the Volvo V40 breaks into the Finnish monthly Top 5 for the very first time at #5 with 278 units and 2.7%.
The Honda CR-V takes advantage of the new generation to jump up to a fantastic 7th place with 269 sales and 2.6% vs. #25 and 1.1% in the Full Year 2012 and the BMW 3 Series continues its impressive progression, up a further 3 spots on December to #8 at 259 units and 2.5% vs. #30 and 1% in FY2012. But the most noticeable arrival in the Finnish Top 30 this month is the all-new Opel Mokka, up to a promising (and world-best so far) #18 spot thanks to 151 sales for a 1.5% market share.
