After a write-off of a first quarter (-46% on 2012!), the Croatian new car market is feeling a little more rosy now: sales are down just 1% year-on-year in May at 3,344 units, making it the first 3,000+ sales month in Croatia since June 2012! The year-to-date total stands at 12,194 registrations, still down a paltry 28% on 2012.
