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.

  1. @Gerardo : i20 is a little bit smaller than Accent and is only hatchback (3 and 5 doors). It is also less powerful than the Accent : up to 1400cc and 100HP only). In fact, Accent is not sold in Europe (except in Turkey and Russia).

  2. @Gerardo Cruz No, Accent (= Solaris in Russia) is somewhere in size between i20 and i30 (= Elantra GT in USA). Accent is intended for non-european market (except for Ukraine and Belarus) while i20 is sold mostly in European Union and European Economic Area countries (Germany, United Kingdom, Norway, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, Greece, Romania etc.). If Accent is available in your country, you probably can’t purchase i20 and vice versa.

  3. @Gerardo Cruz

    Hey, the i20 competes with VW Polo, Toyota Yaris, Honda Fit etc. It is related to Accent but Accent is kind of between small cars and subcompacts. These cars are designed for different markets.
