New car sales in Denmark edge up 1.6% year-on-year in July to 16.713 registrations, keeping the YTD tally in positive at +1.3% to 138.954 and now just 17 units below the all-time high mark of 2017.

All remaining Top 6 brands outpace the market, with Audi (+55.1%), Skoda (+18.5%), Citroen (+9.4%) and Peugeot (+9.3%) particularly strong. In the tail end of the Top 10, BMW (+29.3%) and Mercedes (+17.9%) impress.
Model-wise, despite a steep fall the Nissan Qashqai (-17.3%) reclaims the pole position it holds YTD but it was tight: only 3 sales separate it from the #2, the Citroen C3 (+23.3%) in great shape and distancing two other falling nameplates: the VW Polo (-17.5%) and Peugeot 208 (-13.6%). The VW T-Cross advances two spots on June to break into the Danish Top 5 for the first time. For its part the new Toyota Corolla breaks into the Top 10.
