The Toyota Corolla is the best-selling vehicle in Finland in July.
Even though it remains in negative, the Finnish new car market slows down its decline further in July to just -4.6% to 9.018 registrations, meaning the year-to-date volume is now down -12.5% to 68.250. Toyota (+27.9%) is completely and spectacularly oblivious to the depleted context, improving its share to 18.3% vs. just 10.9% for #2 Volkswagen (-16.4%) now only 8 sales below Skoda (-3.6%) so far in 2019. Only Hyundai (+58.3%) and Kia (+11.5%) also manage double-digit gains in the Top 10, wheat Opel (-53.1%), Nissan (-15.7%), Mercedes (-12.1%) and further down Dacia (-60.3%), BMW (-46.3%), Honda (-43.2%), Subaru (-40.6%), Mazda (-35.9%), Suzuki (-27.3%) and Audi (-19.4%) are in complete freefall. Strong gains are more frequents down the ranking with Tesla (+466.7%), Jaguar (+83.3%), Mitsubishi (+83%), Seat (+34.6%), Citroen (+27.7%) and Renault (+10.5%) showing great resolve.
The Toyota Corolla (+2633.3%) is boosted to #1 by the new generation hatch, sedan and station wagon for the 2nd time in the past 3 months, with the Toyota Yaris (+44.5%) taking 2nd spot in July. The Skoda Octavia (+13.4%), although very solid also, is knocked down to #3 but remains #1 YTD for now. The Nissan Qashqai (-16.7%) and VW Polo (+8.6%) round up the Top 5, with the Hyundai i20 (+1045.5%), Volvo V60 (+169.6%), Ford Focus (+152.7%), Renault Clio (+114.8%), Volvo XC40 (+45.6%) and Citroen C3 (+44.4%) the most dynamic in the remainder of the Top 30.
