Thanks to Armands from the Automotive Association of Latvia I can share with you the most popular models and brands in Latvia in February 2013. The market is back in positive territory this month: up 4% year-on-year to 893 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 1,804 units, down 5% on 2012. Like in January, the Peugeot 3008 holds the pole position, but this month it is joined by its big brother the Peugeot 5008, with both models selling 48 units for an excellent 5.4% market share. Leader in 2012, the VW Golf rounds up the podium at 42 units and 4.7%.
Other great performers include the Opel Astra up 5 spots on January to #4, the Hyundai i40 up a massive 30 ranks to #5 vs. #41 in the Full Year 2012, the Honda CR-V up 6 to #7 vs. #47, Lada Niva (aka 4×4) stable at a very high #11 (it didn’t even rank within the Top 50 in 2012!) and the Lexus RX up to a very satisfying #25 vs. #43 in 2012.
