Very dark prospects for the Croatian new car market in 2013: after diving by 48% year-on-year in January, sales fall by an equally catastrophic 49% in February to just 1,817 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 3,601 units, down 49% on 2012… Leader over the Full Year 2012, the Opel Astra reclaims the monthly top spot for the first time since last September thanks to 83 sales and 4.6% share but is still #2 year-to-date behind the VW Golf at 140 units and 3.9% vs. 162 and 4.5%. The Renault Clio remains very solid and rounds up the podium with 60 sales and 3.3% vs. #12 in 2012. Other great performers include the Kia Sportage at #8 and Dacia Sandero at #12.
