After going through the overall German sales charts for September, let’s dive into the Private Sales (PS) ranking, to see what German consumers are really buying. Below the VW Golf selling double the amount of any other cars in spite of a weak 31% PS ratio, the VW Tiguan is back up 8 spots on August to #2 with 2,972 sales and 56%. But similarly to the overall ranking, it’s Volkswagen-owned Skoda that is making the headlines this month. The Fabia is up to a fantastic third place thanks to 2,583 units and a strong 63% PS ratio, the Octavia is #5 in spite of a low 38% PS ratio, the Yeti is up 16 ranks to #8 and a shiny 75% PS ratio, the best in the Top 40, and the Roomster is up to #34 at 70% PS ratio.
Other great successes with private German buyers this month are the Ford Kuga up 17 spots to a beautiful 11th place with 73% of its buyers private, the Toyota Yaris up 12 to #15 and 72% and Toyota Auris up to #21 and 66%. On the other end of the scale, only 18% of Opel Corsa German buyers were private last month, 19% of BMW 3 Series, 23% of Opel Astra, 25% of Fiat 500, 28% of Seat Leon and 29% of Audi A1.
