The Greek new car market is down a harsh 13% year-on-year in April to 8.452 registrations, yet thanks to a fantastic Q1 score the year-to-date tally remains largely in positive at +18% to 29.549 units. Peugeot is the surprise brand leader this month, up 5 spots on March and 12% year-on-year to 11.7% market share vs. 8.3% so far in 2017. Toyota tumbles down 25% to 9.8% share vs. 11.3% year-to-date and Volkswagen is up 22% to 9.8% also vs. 9% so far this year, now ranking #2 YTD. Inside the Top 10, Citroen (-34%), Opel (-39%) and Nissan (-40%) – last month’s leader are also hit hard. Reversely, Skoda (+92%), Land Rover (+100%), Kia (+141%) and Hyundai (+382%) all shine.
Model-wise, after being outsold by the Nissan Micra last month, the Toyota Yaris reclaims the top spots it holds year-to-date despite a steep 34% drop. Only 12 units below is the Peugeot 208 up 10 spots on March and 13% year-on-year and now ranking 4th year-to-date. The Fiat Panda (-19%), Opel Corsa (-48%) and VW Polo (-24%) follow but all fall heavily. In fact, only the Citroen C3 (+7%) is up in the remainder of the Top 10. Just outside, the Suzuki Baleno shoots up 116% to #11, the VW Up! is up 134% to #13 and the Hyundai i10 up 243% to #16. Among recent launches, the Audi Q2 is up 12 spots to #29, the Toyota C-HR is stable at #35 and the Suzuki Ignis is down 14 to #47. We welcome the Skoda Kodiaq directly at #55 this month.
