Ireland is one of the rare European market to see its new car registrations decline year-on-year in January at -1.9% to 38.993 units. Part of the explanation for this drop is the import of close to 7.000 used cars – double the amount a year ago, a surge due to the British pound’s sharp decline after the Brexit vote according to Automotive News. Hyundai (-9%) ends the month in pole position above Toyota (-8%), Ford (+0.1%) and Volkswagen (+0.1%). Nissan (+6%), Renault (+13%), Skoda (+4%), Opel (+23%) and Mercedes (+71%) also beat the market inside the Top 10 while beyond, Seat (+19%), Suzuki (+23%), Subaru (+56%), Jaguar (+84%) and Alfa Romeo (+150%) post the largest gains. Model-wise, the Hyundai Tucson confirms the pole position it snapped over the FY2016 despite deliveries down 24% year-on-year, followed this time by the Ford Focus (-4%), Fiesta (+11%) and Nissan Qashqai (+32%). The VW Golf, #2 in FY2016, is relegated to #5. The Kia Sportage jumps 55% to #10, the Renault Megane surges 1645% to #10 thanks to the new generation, the VW Tiguan is up 102% to #16 and the Mercedes E-Class up 515% to #18. The Toyota C-HR, #1 in low-volume November and December, falls to #25 in January, followed in the recent launch ranking by the Seat Ateca (#55), Jaguar F-Pace (#69) and Hyundai Ioniq (#81).
