The Ford Puma signs a second ever Top 10 finish in Hungary.
New car sales in Hungary are stuck in a rut at -21.2% year-on-year in July to 12.045 units, meaning the year-to-date tally is now down -24.6% to 67.715. When including Light Commercials these figures are 13.672 for July and 79.488 YTD. Suzuki (-64.2%) retains the brands top spot but endures a devastating drop, going from a record 25.8% share a year ago in July 2019 to just 11.7% this month. Ford (+23.6%) bucks the negative trend to step up to #2 with 9.9% share, a far cry above its YTD level of #6 and 8%. Skoda (+10.4%) is also up year-on-year and gains 3 spots on June to #3, distancing Toyota (+2.8%) still #1 YTD and Volkswagen (-11.4%).
Model-wise, the Suzuki Vitara (-60%) remains the bets-seller and is now back to #1 YTD, the Fiat 500 (+75.6%) climbs to #2 for the month above the Skoda Octavia (-3.7%), both nameplates toppling the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross (-64.8%) from the 2nd spot it held last month. The Dacia Duster (+14.3%) rallies back up to #5 ahead of the Toyota Corolla and Yaris while at #8 the Ford Puma signs its second ever Hungarian Top 10 finish after last February (#7). Leader year-to-date up to last month thanks to generous tax rebates for 7-seaters, the Dacia Lodgy is down to #9 in July while the Kia Ceed closes the Top 10 just above the Skoda Kodiaq.
