The Argentinean new vehicle market is up by a solid 10.9% year-on-year in September to 78.889 registrations, lifting the year-to-date total up 28.3% to 700.348 units, only the second time in history that sales cross the 700.000 units after just 9 months along with 2013 (752.724). Market leaders Volkswagen (+23%) and Chevrolet (+20%) double the overall growth to improve their shares to 16.3% and 14.5% respectively. Ford (+2%) and Renault (-11%) on the other hand lose share but Fiat (+20%), Citroen (+27%), Honda (+33%) and most strikingly Nissan (+95%) impress. Outside the Top 10, Iveco (+47%), Chery (+50%), Subaru (+78%), Jeep (+118%), DS (+126%) and Lifan (+349%) are the most dynamic, making it two Chinese brands inside the Argentinean Top 20.
In the models ranking, the VW Gol Trend celebrates its 7th win in the past 8 months with deliveries up 57% to 6% share vs. 4.8% so far in 2017. It is followed like in August by the Chevrolet Onix up 4-fold on September 2016 and the Renault Sandero up 62%. The Toyota Etios (+30%) completes a Top 4 vastly outperforming the market. In fact, the Toyota Hilux (-7%) and Fiat Palio (+4%) are the only Top 10 nameplates not posting a double-digit gain: the Chevrolet Prisma (+188%), Ford Ka (+83%), Peugeot 208 (+67%) and VW Amarok (+24%) all impress. Further down, notice the VW Up up 52% (boosted by the new Pepper variant), the Fiat Toro up 70% to #14 (its highest ranking so far in Argentina), the Fiat Mobi up 122% to #17, the Chevrolet Cruze up 80% and the Jeep Renegade up 113%. The Renault Captur (#34) leads recent launches (<12 months) ahead of the Citroen C-Elysee (#48), Nissan Kicks (#50) and Peugeot 301 (#59).
