The Finnish new car market is up by a robust 15% year-on-year in May to 10.338 registrations, lifting the year-to-date total up 14% to 54.110 units after five months.Volkswagen retains its brands pole position by a smidge at 1.133 sales (-7%) vs. 1.128 (+33%) for Toyota with Skoda rounding up the podium at 1.063 (+13%). Kia (+30%), Renault (+63%), Honda (+110%), Suzuki (+129%), Jaguar (+288%) and Ssangyong (+190%) also perform splendidly. Model-wise, the Skoda Octavia is one step (and over one percentage point of market share) ahead despite stable sales at 5.2% share vs. 3.9% for its direct follower the VW Golf and 3.4% for last month’s leader the Nissan Qashqai (+52%). Just below, the Kia Rio (+78%), Ford Focus (+35%), Toyota Yaris (+104%) and Opel Astra (+127%) all post extremely impressive year-on-year gains. The Skoda Superb is up 5-fold on the previous generation a year ago to land at #12, while the Suzuki Vitara (+178%), BMW 5 Series (+110%) and Audi A4 (+95%) also impress and we welcome the arrival of the Honda HR-V in the YTD Top 30 at #29.
