The Mazda CX-30 is the best-selling vehicle in Colombia in August and year-to-date.
The Colombian new car market continues to evolve at markedly higher levels than last year with August volumes up 59.5% year-on-year to 21.099, leading to a year-to-date tally up 55.2% to 155.398.

Nissan (+89.6%) also vastly outpaces the market at #4 but Chevrolet (-29.6%) is hit full frontal by the microchip crisis and falls three spots on July to #5 with just 8.7%. Hyundai (+236.5%), Suzuki (+214.4%), Toyota (+77.9%) and Volkswagen (+63.7%) also post fantastic gains in the remainder of the Top 10.
