The Hungarian new car market continues on its excellent run so far in 2015: up another 18% year-on-year in February to 5,914 registrations, 7,255 including LCVs. The brands ranking is unchanged on last month, with Skoda leading the way at 14.9% share above Opel at 12.6% and Ford at 11%. The Skoda Octavia remains the most popular nameplate in the country thanks to an excellent 666 sales and 11.3% share, followed by the Ford Focus at 4.1% and the Opel Astra at 3.7%. The Suzuki Swift is down two spots to #4 but remains #2 year-to-date for now. The Opel Mokka is back inside the Top 10 at #8 as is the Ford Kuga at #10, but the surprise of the month comes from the Mercedes B-Class up to a very unusual 7th place with 166 sales and 2.8% share, the large majority of it due to an exceptional police order as pictured above.
