Over the first 6 months of 2013, the Mexican new car market is up a lovely 9% on 2012 to 501,987 registrations and passing the half-million mark at this stage of the year for the first time since 2008. All indicators are pointing towards a millionaire year in 2013 for Mexico, the first one in 5 years. Nissan continues to dominate the brands ranking by far with 25,3% of the Mexican market, even managing to place no less than 6 models inside the year-to-date Top 10! The Chevrolet Aveo remains the most popular model in the country thanks to sales up 14% to 31,150 and 6.2% share, however the VW Clasico is catching up: after a painful year in 2012, it is back in the game, up 50% and 3 spots year-on-year over the period to #2 with 25,866 sales and 5.2%.
