Excellent start of the year for the Hungarian new car market with sales up 15% to 6.418 units. Ford is the surprise leader this month with deliveries shooting up 27% to 11% share, a fair distance above last year’s leader Suzuki at 9.1% (-13%). Worse: the Japanese carmaker only snapped the 2nd spot by the skin of its teeth: Skoda (+1%) and Volkswagen (+33%) are only 3 and 5 units below respectively… Toyota surges 86% to hit 8.3% share in 6th place, catching up to Opel at 8.5% (-6%) while Fiat breaks into the Top 10 at #10 vs. #12 over the Full Year 2016. Model-wise, the Suzuki Vitara remains clear leader despite a 5% drop, ahead of the Skoda Octavia (+3%) and Opel Astra K. The Ford Focus (#4) and Kuga (#5) justify Ford’s brand leadership this month, with the Opel Astra J not having said its last word at #10.
