Whereas most of the European Union is still reeling from post-WLTP hangover, the Greek new car market aligns a second consecutive month in positive in November at +5.7% to 6.893 registrations, leading to a year-to-date volume up 18.6% to 98.094. Strikingly, the Top 7 best-selling brands all outpace the market with double-digit gains: Toyota (+33%), Peugeot (+31%) and Volkswagen (+12%) rank on the podium ahead of Opel (+19%), Citroen (+42%), Suzuki (+28%) and Mercedes (+22%). In contrast, Jeep (-67%), Dacia (-50%), Audi (-33%), Renault (-30%), Smart (-24%) and Fiat (-15%) struggle. The Toyota Yaris (+36%) continues to dominate the Greek models ranking head and shoulders with 10.4% share vs. 6.3% YTD, followed by the VW Polo (+100%) which snaps the #2 YTD ranking off the Fiat Panda this month, the Citroen C3 (+60%) and Opel Corsa (+31%). Notice also the Toyota C-HR (+123%) cracking the Greek Top 10 for the first time, Nissan Micra (+34%) and Mercedes A-Class (+22%) all posting fantastic results in the remainder of the Top 10, while further down the VW T-Roc (+512%), Audi A3 (+170%), Peugeot 3008 (+130%) and 2008 (+80%) also impress. The Volvo XC40 (#25) is the best-selling recent launch (<12 months) above the BMW X2 (#62).
