We have a surprise in pole position: for the first time since BSCB started following Moldova monthly in 2013, the Toyota RAV4 is the best-seller in the country thanks to deliveries up 92% year-on-year to 5.1% share. The RAV4 ranked #2 four times in the past five years: in April 2014, July and August 2015 and November 2017. Moldova’s traditional leader, the Dacia Logan, is dow 34% to rank #2 but cements its YTD pole position with sales up 45% so far in 2018. The Dacia Duster rounds up the podium above the Dacia Dokker, Hyundai Tucson and Toyota Corolla. Notice also the Renault Kadjar at #8.
