This month is on for Spanish new car sales, up a spectacular 35% year-on-year to 60,458 registrations, bringing the market back to its 2010 level but still far off the record 129,390 units sold back in October 2007. The year-to-date total is back into positive at 607,606 units, up 1% on 2012. Another very volatile and fragmented models ranking in October: thanks to 1,900 sales and 3.1% share, the Renault Clio is the most popular model in the country. It is only the second time in one year and potentially the last 20 years that the Renault Clio tops the Spanish sales charts, and this performance enables the nameplate to go up to #4 year-to-date. The VW Polo is up 3 spots on September to a brilliant 2nd place at 1,769 units and 2.9% and is now only 108 sales off the 2nd spot year-to-date at 17,661 sales vs. 17,769 for the Opel Corsa down to #14 this month.
Even though it has only ranked #1 twice this year (in April and July), the Seat Ibiza is comfortably installed in pole position year-to-date with 20,019 units and 3.3%. It is up 3 ranks to #3 this month, ahead of the Nissan Qashqai (-1) and last month’s leader the VW Golf. The Toyota Auris continues to impress, up 2 spots to #8 vs. #17 year-to-date, while the Renault Captur is down 4 to #14, the VW Tiguan stays solid at #19, the Renault Scenic is up 25 to #22, Peugeot 2008 up 19 to #31, BMW X1 up 9 to #37, Fiat 500L up 32 to #41 and Land Rover Defender up 67 to #115.
As far as new models are concerned, notice the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross at #130, the BMW 4 Series at #163, Fiat 500L Living at #216 and the Maserati Ghibli selling its first 3 units.
