New car sales in Belgium are up 6.6% year-on-year in July to 36.627 registrations, leading to a year-to-date tally up 4.3% to 358.929 units. Volkswagen (+0.1%) reclaims the brands top spot it holds year-to-dte off Renault (-4%) but the fight remains very tight with only 175 units separating the two manufacturers so far this year. Mercedes (+27%), Peugeot (+38%), BMW (-3%) and Audi (+17%) all overtake Opel (-18%) to each gain one spot vs. their June ranking. Dacia (+43%) delivers the largest year-on-year improvement in the Top 10, while below Toyota (+23%), Mazda (+26%), Fiat (+27%), Infiniti (+37%), Seat (+52%), Alfa Romeo (+60%), Jeep (+70%), Tesla (+80%) and Porsche (+101%) impress.

The VW Golf reclaims the YTD lead off the Renault Clio. 

There is a significant amount of change atop the models rankings this month. Leader in July with an impressive 928 sales, the Hyundai Tucson returns to the #3 spot YTD it held back in 2016, overtaking the Opel Corsa in the process. Thanks to consistent sales month after month, the VW Golf (+52%) manages to bypass the Renault Clio to snap the YTD pole position after seven months with 2.1% share, a fragile 59 units above the Clio also holding 2.1% of the Belgian market. Such low market shares for the top 2 best-sellers make Belgium the most fragmented market in Europe (and the world) above Switzerland that has two nameplates above 3% (the VW Golf and Skoda Octavia). The VW Polo (+22%) passes the BMW X1 (+78%) for #5 while the Peugeot 3008 continues to gear up, ranking #3 in July above the Clio.
