* See the Top 320 All-models ranking by clicking on the title! *
32,086 new light vehicles found a buyer in Belgium in August, bringing the year-to-date total to 390,258. The VW Golf continues to reign supreme over the models ranking thanks to 1,017 sales and 3.2% this month and 11,346 year-to-date, but the hero of the month is without a doubt the Audi A3, up two spots on July and on its year-to-date ranking to land at a fantastic 2nd place with 642 units sold for a 2% market share. Yes, Belgium is one of the most fragmented car market in the world (along with Switzerland), one of the reasons for this being that this country does not have a major home manufacturer their nationals can be loyal to.
The Mini is #8 in Belgium in August.
The Renault Clio rounds up the podium at 1.9% share, ahead of the Peugeot 308 up to an excellent 4th position vs. #15 year-to-date and the Renault Scenic down 3 spots on July to #5 but still ahead of its #8 year-to-date spot. Notice also the Mini up a huge 19 ranks to #8 vs. #44 year-to-date thanks to the new generation, the Skoda Octavia up to #13 vs. #23, the Mercedes A-Class up to #17 vs. #29, Mercedes CLA up to a superb 20th spot with 1.1% market share vs. #42 year-to-date and the BMW X5 up 36 ranks on last month to #41 vs. #95 so far in 2014.
