Croatia September 2020: Kia (+59.6%), Dacia (+24.8%), Opel (+18.3%) can’t prevent 6th straight double-digit market drop (-13%)

Opel sales are up 18.3% and the Corsa up 219%.

The Croatian new car market endures a 6th consecutive double-digit year-on-year decline in September, albeit the smallest one to-date at -13% to 3.090 units. The year-to-date tally now stands at 28.257, off -44.9% over the same period in 2019. Volkswagen (-4.2%) resists markedly better than the market and shoots up to 18.6% share vs. 15.9% so far this year, but Skoda (+19.9%) and Hyundai (+18.6%) fare even better on the podium. In fact, Kia (+59.6%), Dacia (+24.8%) and Opel (+18.3%) make it five double-digit gainers in the September Top 7, at odds with the overall evolution of the market. That’s because Ford (-65.2%), Mazda (-60.8%), Renault (-48.5%), Suzuki (-46.6%), Seat (-37%), Jeep (-35.9%) and BMW (-32.6%) take harsh blows.

In the models ranking, the Skoda Octavia (+35.3%) remains the best-seller distancing the VW Polo (+137.7%) and T-Cross (+30.7%) in a high-performing podium. The Golf (-53.4%) is back up 3 spots on August to make it 3 Volkswagens in the September Top 4. The Dacia Sandero (+39.3%) brilliantly rounds out the Top 5, while the Fiat Panda (-11.5%) is up 3 spots to #6 even though it doesn’t rank inside the YTD Top 20. The Opel Corsa (+219%), Kia Stonic (+96.4%), Dacia Duster (+56.8%), Opel Crossland X (+48.6%), Toyota Yaris (+34%), Hyundai Tucson (#12) and Peugeot 2008 (#16) also impress.
