Switzerland is one of only a handful of European markets to lose ground year-on-year in March at -8% to 29.099 registrations, pulling the year-to-date total down to negative territory at -0.4% to 71.957 units. Volkswagen (+2%) goes against grain with a positive result at 11.9% share, distancing BMW (-3%), Mercedes (-16%) and Skoda (-22%) with Audi (-7%) rounding up the Top 5. Below, Opel (+18%), Toyota (+32%) and Mazda (+31%) all improve frankly, as do Dacia at #21 (+20%), Land Rover at #24 (+27%), Infiniti at #30 (+509%) and Jaguar at #31 (+187%). Model-wise, the VW Golf outsells the Skoda Octavia by just 18 units in March, not enough to reclaim the #1 year-to-date position with the Octavia still in the lead so far in 2016 at 2.708 sales vs. 2.602 thanks to a very strong January score. With the Touran at #3, the Polo at #4 and the Passat at #5, Volkswagen places four nameplates in the Top 5, with the Audi A3 at #6 and VW T6 at #7 the VW Group monopolises the Top 7 and with the Skoda Fabia at #9 and Seat Leon at #10 it places an incredible 9 nameplates inside the Swiss Top 10. Among recent launches, the Hyundai Tucson (#16), Mazda CX-3 (#18) and Mercedes GLC (#26) stand out.
