The Austrian new car market is up an encouraging 1% year-on-year in July to 28,543 registrations, however the year-to-date total is still down 7% at 199,747 units. The VW Golf and Polo dominates as is also the case year-to-date with 4.6% and 3.2% share respectively, but the hero of the month is without a doubt the Hyundai ix35 up 3 spots on June to brilliantly land on the Austrian podium for the very first time thanks to 637 sales and 2.2% share. It beats its previous best of #5 reached in June 2012 and delivers a 4th consecutive month inside the Top 10 whereas the ix35 had not ranked within the Austrian Top 10 at all before 2012.
