Skoda (-9.1%) remains in 2nd place overall, with Volkswagen (-31.8%) in great difficulty but still rounding out the podium.

Model-wise, the Toyota Corolla (+126.4%) secures a 10th consecutive monthly win ahead of the Skoda Octavia (+9%) and Fabia (-25.9%), both overtaking the Toyota Yaris (-6.5%) which ranked #2 last month. The Toyota C-HR (+25.2%) slices its Polish ranking record in two and breaks into the Top 5 for the very first time at #5, eclipsing its previous best of #10 hit in February 2018, December 2018, April 2019 and January 2020. The Toyota RAV4 is down two spots on its record #5 last month to a still fantastic 7th place, ranking record-breakers include the Skoda Kamiq (#14), Kia Stonic (+58.6%) at #26, Volvo XC40 (#31), Seat Arona (#37), Kia Xceed (#42) and Hyundai Kona (#44). The Top of the ranking doesn’t change when only taking into account passenger cars, but ranking record breakers do even better, to the Skoda Kamiq (#13), Kia Stonic (#23), Volvo XC40 (#28), Seat Arona (#34), Kia Xceed (#39) and Hyundai Kona (#40) is added the Mercedes CLA (#49).
