Greek new car sales keep on recovering in July, up a brilliant 18% year-on-year to 7,627 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 45,096 units, up an equally impressive 22% on 2013. In the brands ranking, Volkswagen makes up for a weak month of June (#6) by taking the lead in July with 768 sales, earning it just above 10% of the market and overtaking Nissan (9.6%), Toyota (9.1%), Opel (8.9%), Hyundai (8.7%) and Fiat (6.5%).
Model-wise, the Hyundai i20 manages to hold onto the pole position for the 2nd month running, something this nameplate had never achieved before in Greece. It is now #3 year-to-date below traditional leaders the Toyota Yaris (down to #3 in July) and Opel Corsa. The VW Polo completes a Top Four 100% supermini at 4.8% share while the Nissan Qashqai resists in 5th place thanks to the new model. Notice also the Suzuki Swift back up 11 spots on June to #10, the VW Up up 15 to #11, Volvo V40 up 7 to an excellent 13th place vs. #19 year-to-date, the Seat Toledo lodging an exceptional month at #21 with 121 sales or 78% of its 2014 sales so far, the Mini up 24 ranks to #26 and the Hyundai i10 up 27 to #31.
