When we thought it couldn’t get worse for the new car market in Greece, well it does: at 5,529 units in January sales are down 35% on January 2012, which was down 13% on January 2011, itself down 63% on January 2010… At this rate, the market could fall below 40,000 annual units in 2013 for the first time since 1980 and only the third time in the last 40 years… For the 5th time in the last 12 months, the Toyota Yaris dominates the models ranking with an excellent 468 sales and 8.5% share, well above its FY2012 level of 5.8%. 2012’s leader the Opel Corsa is also in great shape at 398 units and 7.2% at #2 while the Opel Astra rounds up the podium at 5.8% and the Citroen C3 shines once again at #4 and 5.4%.

  1. Just for the record, SEAA (the official importers organisation in Greece) gives Pandas’ sales separately from New Pandas’ sales. So, VW Up! is the best selling model in its class with 111 sales for January, according to the official ranking. It’s another matter if SEAA do the right thing by giving sales stats this way, of course. 🙂

  2. hehe, I see you are a VW-fan 😉 but you must admit that VW design had never won anything 😉 this was the reason why VW took Giugiaro…. VW cars are only overrated 😉

  3. good to see the VW up! is above the fiat 500. The Fiat 500 is so ugly like a ballooned, blown egg on 4 wheels !! unbelievable ugly…typical Fiat ! 🙂

  4. good to see that Fiat Panda is in front of VW up !! It could be better if Fiat 500 would be too. VW up is so ugly, a microwave with 4 wheels !! unbelivable ugly…tipical VW !
