49,362 new vehicles found a buyer in Argentina this month, a new record for December and up 31% year-on-year. This means 2013 is a new all-time record for Argentinean new car sales: up 13% on 2012 to 955,023 registrations. Renault continues on its incredible run: it tops the brands ranking for the 2nd month in a row with 8,672 sales and 17.6% share vs. 15.2% for Volkswagen and 13.1% for Chevrolet, and the French manufacturer passes Chevrolet to rank #2 over the Full Year 2013. For the first time in the history of automobile in Argentina, Renault monopolises the podium this month and delivers a world-first: the Duster tops the sales charts with 1,940 sales and 3.9% share, the very first time the low-cost SUV ranks #1 in any country in the world! This comes after the Clio Mio topped the Argentinean ranking for the first time last month

The Clio Mio is down one rank to #2 with 1,871 sales and 3.8% while the Sandero is up one to climb onto the Argentinean podium for only the second time ever after July 2012 at #3 with 1,688 units and 3.4%. Renault’s performance is all the more impressive as the new generation Sandero has not even launched yet here. The new Logan is already up to #34 with 479 sales for its first full month in market, adding up to 889 units (1.8%) for the Logan nameplate this month. The VW Gol Trend is the best-selling non-Renault model this month at #4 followed by the VW Suran while 2013’s best-seller the Chevrolet Classic is surprisingly down to a paltry #11. Finally, notice the new generation Ford Focus making sparks at #8 with 1,059 sales and 2.1% share, up 9 spots on November, the Peugeot 4008 up 42 to #75 and the Mercedes CLA up 12 to #78.
