The Polish new car market is down just 1% year-on-year in February, a solid performance given the current depressed environment in Europe. This brings the year-to-date total to 56,740 units, up 5% on 2012. Passed by the Skoda Fabia for the first time in 4 years last month, the Skoda Octavia reclaims the pole position in February but is still very shy at 836 sales and 3.1% share, or less than half the 6.3% it hit one year ago in February 2012… #2 this month at 774 units and 2.9%, the Fabia still leads year-to-date with 2,484 sales and 4.4% vs. 1,989 and 3.5% for the Octavia.

Outstanding performance of the Ford Fiesta, potentially helped by the arrival of the new model and up 5 spots to land on the third step of the podium at 736 units and 2.7%. This is by far the Fiesta’s best monthly ranking in the country for at least 4 years. Other great performers this month in Poland include the Kia Sportage extremely solid at #6, the Hyundai ix35 up 15 ranks on January to #8, the Dacia Duster up 10 to #9, Peugeot 208 up 19 to #11, Kia Cee’d up 11 to #13, Skoda Rapid at #28, Suzuki SX4 up 15 to #29 and Dacia Lodgy up 5 to #40.

  1. I need to to thank you for this very good read!! I certainly enjoyed every bit of it.
    I’ve got you saved as a favorite to check out new stuff you post…

  2. Hey AndyT, I wrote about that in my Novermber comment to Matt’s post. Let me copy:
    “The reason for low sales of SEAT is some kind of fight between Polish dealership and VW. I don’t know the details but SEATs are sold by some local company (or together with it). The same used to be for VW, Audis and Skoda, but now VW took over. And they want to take over SEAT as well, they sign some agreement 3 or 4 years back and the price is based also on the number SEATs sold in these years. So you can clearly see the incentives for VW, they keep wholesale prices of SEATs high so that local dealership is forced to keep high prices (which are above market levels for similar models) and sales are low. Once they take over, SEAT should be back in the game.
    I am just wondering how this local company agreed to sign such a deal.
    And another thing – Seat has just Ibiza, nothing more. Leon is old, Altea is old, Mia is not really in the market, Exco is old. And Toledo is not yet in the market I guess, tho given how Rapid was priced I do not except good sales for Toledo. So only Ibiza is interesting”

  3. SEAT is doing so well in so many markets including neighbouring Germany, but Poland must be its weakest major market? 50 cars is a terrible figure.

  4. The only way new Fiesta helped was that Ford could make a substantial discount for an old one (produces 2012, but sold 2013). Plus dealers had to buy new Fiestas for their showrooms.
