The best performer atop the charts is without contest Hyundai (+30.4%) managing a spectacular gain to step up to #4 above Peugeot (-21%). Toyota (+3.1%) and Citroen (+2.7%) also secure meagre upticks at #8 and #6 respectively but it’s Opel (+99.3%) that once again posts the largest gain in the Top 10 with sales almost doubling on August 2018.
