After preliminary figures at the end of August, we can now go into the detail of July data for Europe 29 markets – Russia and Turkey excluded. Final figures confirm July is the first year-on-year decline since August 2013 at -2% to 1.15m units, but the year-to-date tally is still up 7.5% to 9.2m deliveries. One change in the Top 10 brands compared to the preliminary data: Fiat passes BMW to rank 8th overall. Peugeot (-10%), Skoda (-11%) and Volkswagen (-11%) still post the largest declines in the Top 10 and are responsible for the overall market decline. Outside the Top 10, Dacia (+12%) and Suzuki (+17%) shine with double-digit gains, Land Rover (+33%), Jaguar (+33%), Bentley (+44%), Rolls-Royce (+71%) and Infiniti (+220%) post spectacular improvements further down the ranking.

BMW X1 Europe July 2016The new model pushes BMW X1 sales up 4-fold compared to a year ago. 

Model-wise, the Top 13 best-sellers remain unchanged vs. preliminary figures, with the VW Golf still far ahead despite sales down 22%, distancing the VW Polo (-6%), Ford Fiesta (-3%), Opel Astra (+26%) and Renault Clio (-11%). The Dacia Sandero shoots up 3% to #12 but the Ford Focus (-12%), Skoda Octavia (-18%) and VW Passat (-22%) all struggle. The Fiat Panda passes the Audi A4 to rank at a final #14 for July and the Renault Captur bypasses the Skoda Fabia to rank #19. Beyond the familiar Top 20, the Hyundai Tucson gains 7 spots on June to #27, the Ford Kuga is up 16% year-on-year to #33, the VW Touran up 144% to #34, the Renault Kadjar up 128% to #37, the BMW X1 up 317% to #46 and the Skoda Superb up 96% to #59.

The Fiat Tipo is now the most popular recent launch (<12 months), boosted up 35 ranks on last month by the hatch variant to #58 overall. It is followed by the Mercedes GLC at #93 (-17 spots on July), the Honda HR-V at #133 (+2), Renault Talisman at #137 (-20), Jaguar F-Pace at #145 (+11) and Suzuki Baleno at #149 (+1). Further down, the Seat Ateca breaks into the European Top 200 for the first time at #187, the Volvo S/V90 is up 35 ranks to #214 and the Kia Niro is up 55 to #230. We welcome no less than four new nameplates in the European sales charts in July: the Maserati Levante at #250, Fiat Talento at #257, Citroen Spacetourer at #275 and Infiniti QX30 at #282.
