Ireland August 2020: Kia (+69.6%) shows off, Hyundai Kona roars to first win in improving market (-4.2%)

The facelifted model (pictured) should help the Hyundai Kona improve further in Ireland.

Unlike most European marker so far, Ireland continues to slow down its fall in August at just -4.2% year-on-year to 4.875 registrations vs. -14.1% in July. The year-to-date tally is now down -28.6% to 78.920. Volkswagen (-5.4%) matches the market evolution to remain in the lead with 12.9% share, while Kia (+69.6%) shoots up 6 spots on last month to land in 2nd place overall with a stunning 9.7% share vs. 6% so far this year (#7). Hyundai (+10%) leaps up to #3 but Skoda (-7.4%), Ford (-15.5%) and Toyota (-23.1%) all fall faster than the market. Mercedes (+14.9%) and Peugeot (+10.1%) also stand out with year-on-year upticks in the remainder of the Top 10 just as Audi (-45.7%) implodes.

Model-wise, the Hyundai Kona (+84.6%) roars to its first ever Irish victory, just as the facelifted model was unveiled. It distances the VW Tiguan (+20%) and Kia Sportage (+78.2%) is an all-positive podium. Below the Hyundai Tucson (-11.8%) straggling at #4, the Kia Niro (+150%) shoots up 30 spots on July to land at #5, distancing the VW Polo (+4.3%) and Skoda Octavia (-17.8%) both also rallying back up from outside the July Top 10. The Ford Puma (#21) tops recent launches above the Skoda Kamiq (#43), Tesla Model 3 (#55) and Mercedes GLB (#73).

Previous month: Ireland July 2020: Ford (+14.4%) places Kuga at #5 in market down -14%
