New car sales in Romania slow down their growth at +1% year-on-year in August to 6,410 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 46,003 units, up 26% on 2013. I give you the models ranking for now, more data and complete analysis will follow shortly. Like in July, local manufacturer Dacia monopolises the podium with the Logan (20.6% share), Duster (6.9%) and Sandero (4.1%) all slightly above their year-to-date levels. The Skoda Octavia overtakes the Ford Fiesta at #4, the Skoda Rapid holds onto an excellent 6th place and the Renault Clio is up 5 ranks to #7.
