One manufacturer goes completely against the grain this month in Uruguay and it’s Fiat, up an incredible 76% on April 2016 to 455 units and 13.6% share and by the same token taking the lead year-to-date of the very first time thanks to sales up 57% to 1.589. The Italian manufacturer now distances Suzuki at 1.533 (-39%), Chevrolet at 1.362 (-26%) and Volkswagen at 1.345 (-24%) whereas these three carmakers all outsold Fiat last year.

Notice also Peugeot up 34% to #6 and Lifan up a spectacular 42% in 7th place, now by far the best-selling Chinese manufacturer in Uruguay.
