The first quarter of 2016 isn’t one to remember for Greek new car sales: March volumes down 3% to 6.316 units pull the 2016 total sales down 11% so far at 15.326 registrations. Nissan becomes the most popular carmaker in the country year-to-date thanks to an exceptionally strong March score at 1.245 sales and 19.7% share, up 74% on March 2015 partly due to the Micra shooting up to pole position with sales more than doubling year-on-year at 737 and 11.7% share. The Micra now ranks #2 year-to-date with 887 units (+41%) vs. 964 (-22%) for the perennial leader, the Toyota Yaris. Volkswagen (-11%), Toyota (-15%), Opel (+7%) and Peugeot (+3%) follow in the brands ranking while Fiat (+60%), BMW (+43%) and Mercedes (+37%) shine. Model-wise, other great performers include the Nissan Qashqai up 39% to #4, the Suzuki Celerio up 252% to #7, the Fiat 500 up 132% to #9 and the BMW X1 up 198% to #13.
