New car sales in Poland continue to surge ahead at +3.1% in March to 57.282 units, leading to a Q1 volume up 10.4% to 155.227.

Audi (+33%), Hyundai (+21%) and Peugeot (+11%) shine but Fiat (-27%) struggles and Volvo breaks into the Polish Top 15 for the first time since March 2016. Model-wise, the Skoda Octavia (-5%) remains on top for the 2nd month running above the Fabia (-4%) but the latter is still #1 YTD. The Opel Astra (+18%) is up two spots on February to climb on the podium while its archenemy the VW Golf (-22%) is in great difficulty. The Renault Clio (+65%), Dacia Duster (+41%) and Toyota Yaris (+25%) post the largest gains in the Top 10. Further down, notice the Dacia Sandero (+52%) and Kia Cee’d (+34%) while the Audi Q5 shoots up to a record 26th spot and both the VW T-Roc (#40) and Skoda Karoq (#41) break into the Polish Top 50 for the first time.

  1. I think something is off in your last tables (seen also in other articles). How can the Q1 volume be up 10,4% while every manufacturer in the top 20 is down /17?

    1. Thank you Milan for picking this up – the /17 figures have now been corrected. Could you please let us know which articles you have seen similar pattern?

      Many thanks,
      All the best,
      Matt
