The Argentinean new car market is smiling in February: up 13% year-on-year to 47.662 registrations, which reduces the year-to-date fall to -3% at 104.173 units. Outsold by Chevrolet in January, Volkswagen reclaims the top spot this month with 8.359 sales and 17.5% share but is up just 3% vs. +64% for Chevrolet at 8.253 units and 17.3%. Year-to-date, Volkswagen is back to #1 for… four sales but drops 17% on 2015 vs. +14% for VW. Renault shines in 4th place (+28%) as does Toyota at #5 (+35%). Honda (+78%), Nissan (+46%), Agrale (+155%) and BMW (+194%) post spectacular gains. Model-wise, the VW Gol Trend is back in charge with 2.179 sales above the Chevrolet Classic (1.904) and Toyota Hilux (1.793) but remains #2 year-to-date below the Fiat Palio for 8 sales. The Toyota Etios impresses in 5th place (+50%), the VW Amarok is up to #7, the Chevrolet Onix up 63% to #11, the Prisma up 68% to #15 and the Tracker up 207% to #20. Not quite surfing on the SUV wave just yet, the Peugeot 2008 is sill very shy for its first full month of sales at #80 with 30 deliveries.
