The Swiss new car market is not quite there yet: down 6% year-on-year in August to 19,783 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 197,258 registrations, down 3% on 2013. Below the VW Golf at 4.4% and the Skoda Octavia at 3.7%, the VW Polo maintains itself on the podium at #3 ahead of the Audi A3 at #4 while the Peugeot 308 is up a huge 31 spots on July to land in 5th position thanks to 351 sales and 1.8% share. But the best performance of the month in Switzerland is delivered by the Mercedes GLA: after missing out for 9 units back in May, it breaks into the Top 10 for the first time in any country in the world at #10 with 254 sales and 1.3% market share.
