Volkswagen (+134.3%) and Toyota (+104%) are also a little shy in context, whereas Hyundai (+209%), Honda (+207.5%), Kia (+206.8%) and Suzuki (+196.1%) are strong in the remainder of the Top 10.

Still #3 year-to-date which makes the podium 100% Nissan, the Nissan March (+107.2%) is down two ranks on last month to #6. The Nissan Sentra (+367.2%) packs a formidable punch at #8 but isn’t as spectacular as the Hyundai Grand i10 (+1678.4%) up to #10. The VW Taos becomes the best-selling recent launch (<12 months), stepping up three spots on March to #12 overall. It topples the Chevrolet Tracker (#16).
