Belgium October 2019: Volkswagen (+25.6%), Peugeot (+29.9%) top market up 15.8%

Volkswagen and Peugeot post the largest gains in the Top 5.

2/12 update: Now with the Top 10 models.

The Belgian new car market continues to benefit from particularly low year-ago post-WLTP volumes with October registrations up 15.8% year-on-year to 42.713 units, yet the year-to-date tally remains in negative at -2.2% to 481.968. Volkswagen (+25.6%) reclaims the brands top spot off Peugeot (+29.9%), both brands frankly outpacing the market and delivering the largest gains in a Top 5 completed by BMW (-5.8%), Mercedes (+9.2%) and Renault (-4.1%) all under-performing. Audi (+160.5%), Citroen (+61.4%) and Hyundai (+30.2%) also beat the market growth in the remainder of the Top 10 while further down, Porsche (+375.4%), Tesla (+368%), Ferrari (+114.3%), Jeep (+79.1%), Lexus (+59.4%), Seat (+53.8%), Alfa Romeo (+47.6%), Fiat (+43.9%), Mazda (+31.5%) and Land Rover (+27.4%) all impress. Model-wise, the VW Golf (-4.1%) reclaims the top spot it holds YTD, distancing the Renault Clio (+0.2%), Hyundai Tucson (+32.3%) and Renault Captur (+75.7%), replicating the YTD Top 4. The VW Polo (+14.4%) is up 4 spots on last month to #5.

  1. How does Peugeot manage to sell 3840 cars in a month, when none are in the top 10? If you divide 3840 by 420 (that would be the 11th spot), they would need at least 10 models to sell that many cars. I tried by using the whole Peugeot range: 108, 208, new 208, 2008, 308, 3008, 508, 5008, Partner, Expert and Boxer. That’s 10 cars in total. And they would have to be in position 11 to 21 and all sell 420 cars… Something seems off with these numbers!

    1. Hi Vavon as always for Belgium the Top 10 models displayed are the year-to-date models, simply ordered based on their October sales. Some Peugeot models not in the YTD Top 10 may have sold enough to be in the October Top 10 but won’t appear here.
      All the best,
      Matt
