Bad news for the Austrian new car market in July: sales are down a harsh 13% year-on-year to just 24,772 units, bringing the year-to-date total to 191,379 registrations, down 4% on 2013. In spite of sales down an even tougher 21%, Volkswagen keeps the lead of the manufacturers ranking by far at 16% market share while Skoda jumps up two spots on June and an impressive 54% year-on-year to #2 and 7.3% share, ahead of Opel at 7.2%, Hyundai at 6.6% and Audi at 6.4%. Model-wise, below the unstoppable VW Golf (5.9% share), the Hyundai i20 impresses, climbing up to 2nd spot overall thanks to 681 sales and 2.7% share, just as the new generation got unveiled. The Skoda Octavia is back up to #3, the Skoda Fabia up to #5, the Audi A4 up from outside the June Top 20 directly to #7 and the Opel Zafira up to #9.
