New vehicle sales in Argentina are up a stunning 39% year-on-year in August to 69.805 units, lifting the year-to-date tally up a solid 10%  to 464.265. For the second time in the past three months – and this year – Renault is the most popular manufacturer in the country with deliveries stepping up frankly at +64% to 10.987 and 15.7% share, riding on the success of the Clio Mio (#3), Sandero (#7), Kangoo (#11), Duster (#21), Logan (#23) and Duster Oroch (#25). Renault edges past Volkswagen (+10%) at 10.498 sales and 15% share, with the facelifted Gol taking the lead of the models ranking with 2.847 sales, ending 4 consecutive months of reign by the Toyota Hilux.

Ford (+22%) places three nameplates inside the Top 10: the Focus (#6), Ranger (#9) and Fiesta (#10). Fiat (+38%) evolves like the market and sees the Palio climb up 55% just as the Toro (#35) overtakes the Strada (#36) and the Mobi breaks into the Top 50 at #46.
