The Polish new car market ends a dreadful streak of 8 consecutive months of double-digit year-on-year falls in September at +7.6% to 37.419 units, leading to a year-to-date tally down -28.1% to 289.298 sales. Toyota (+38%) posts the largest gain in the Top 10 to reach 16% share vs. 14.3% so far this year, keeping Skoda (+18.5%) at a distance at 14% vs. 13.9%. Volkswagen (+3.9%) and Ford (+3.3%) are both back up one spot on last month to #3 and #4 respectively despite trailing the market, while Mercedes (+23.1%) soars to 5th overall above Kia (-19.4%) and Hyundai (+19.5%). Audi (+79.7%), Fiat (+9.6%) and Renault (+8.7%) also outpace the market in the remainder of the Top 15.

Model-wise, the Top 5 returns to its YTD order with the Skoda Octavia (+49.4%) surging in pole position above the Toyota Corolla (+8.2%), Yaris (+55.8%), Skoda Fabia (+3.5%) and Dacia Duster (-7%). The Toyota C-HR (+86.7%), Renault Clio (+47.8%), VW Tiguan (+31.2%) and Ford Focus (+13.9%) also post spectacular upticks in the remainder of the Top 10. Further down, the Toyota Camry (+78.3%) reappears in the Polish Top 50 and breaks its ranking record at #19 vs. #20 last May.

      1. Hi Maciek – living locally (?) would you say the success of the Camry in Poland is due to private sales or do you see lots of Camry taxis for example? Would be interesting to know.

      2. Hi. Yes, I live in Poland.
        I think the sales is generated mainly by private persons.

        I dont see Camry as a Taxi very often.

        I think the popularity of this models is due to:
        1. Strong popularity of Toyota cars in Poland generally.
        2. IT is quite common to import US used cars here in Poland and looking back in the past we have imported many exemplars of previous generations of Camry from USA. So Polish people are very familiar with this car and like Camry.
        3. Camry is the succesor of Toyota Avensis in Europe. Avensis was also quite popular among Poles.

        Greetings from Poland and sorry for my English;)

      3. The Camry is a great car, much more reliable than german cars, Polish people seem to be very expert in vehicles. Greetings!
