Toyota (+9.8%) also trails the market but lodges a market share identical to its YTD level at 14.8%. Kia (+418.5%) catches up on a particularly low year-ago score and remains in third place with 9.9% of the market vs. 7.9% so far this year. Mitsubishi (+62.9%), Nissan (+58.7%) and Skoda (+49%) all post fantastic gains in the remainder of the Top 6, unlike Volkswagen (-33.9%) while Chery (+151.4%) is also extremely dynamic in 8th place. Lada (+400%), Opel (+248.4%) and Land Rover (+93.6%) also shine further down.

Model-wise, the Kia Sportage (+1407.5%) surges to the lead wth 7.1% share, distancing the Renault Duster (-18.5%) and Toyota RAV4 (-17.2%) both in difficulty. The RAV4 remains the best-seller year-to-date above the Sportage and Duster, ensuring the podium is 100% SUV both for the month and YTD. The Renault Sandero (+68.1%) and Mitsubishi Outlander (+123.5%) rounds out the Top 5 ahead of the Renault Logan (-34.6%) and Toyota Prado (+34.7%). The Toyota Camry (+37.5%) and Nissan Qashqai (+31%) also impress in the remainder of the Top 10 while the Hyundai Tucson (-5.4%) makes it 7 SUVs in the August Top 10. The Peugeot 308 (+7250%), Chery Tiggo 4 (+1337.5%) and Nissan X-Trail (+218.6%) deliver sensational gains just outside the Top 10. The Kia Rio X (#28), Chery Jetour X70 (#34) and Chery Tiggo 7 Pro (#37) top recent launches.
