New car sales in Hungary are up a robust 15% year-on-year in July to 7.030 registrations, 8.420 including LCVs. Ford dominates the brands ranking with 10.7% share above Opel, Suzuki, Volkswagen and Skoda but the main event in Hungary this month is the thunderous arrival in pole position of the locally-produced Suzuki Vitara with a stunning 425 sales and 6% share, and this for its 6th month on sale in the country. Total instant blockbuster status for the SUV which has taken the Hungarian market by storm.

The Kia Cee’d surges up to 5th place, the Ford Mondeo remains inside the Top 10 while the Swift (#7) and SX4 S-Cross (#9) make it 3 Suzukis in the July Top 10.
