Latvia August 2019: VW Golf regains top spot in market edging up 0.8%

The VW Golf is the most popular vehicle in Latvia in August.

The Latvian new car market edges up 0.8% year-on-year in August, a fine performance given year-ago volumes were artificially boosted by pre-WLTP stock clearances. The year-to-date tally is now up 6.2% to 12.826. This month the VW Golf (-12.3%) soars 4 spots on July to land in pole position for the first time since last March, followed by the Skoda Octavia (+110.8%) and VW Passat (+27.7%) regaining a spot inside the YTD Top 10 at #8. The Toyota Corolla (+321.4%) holds onto the YTD top ranking ahead of the Toyota RAV4 (+10.4%) but they fall to #4 and #5 respectively in August. The Skoda Kodiaq (+191.7%) and Toyota Yaris (+169.2%) also impress in the remainder of the Top 10.
