One year ago, the Subaru XV triggered an earthquake by taking the top spot overall above the Skoda Octavia and VW Golf. It had since fallen back to the mid-twenties, ranking #25 last month. August seems to have a particular flavour for Subaru’s mini SUV: it is up 20 ranks on July to land at a –less impressive, granted, but still fantastic – 5th place with 338 sales and 1.6%. The other great performer in the Swiss Top 10 this month is the Hyundai i20, up 20 spots to #6 at 324 units and 1.5%. Notice also the Ford Kuga once again extremely strong at #8 vs. #22 year-to-date and the BMW 1 Series back inside the Top 10 at #9.
