Croatia September 2021: Kia scores first win, Dacia Sandero and Duster top market down -10.3%

The Dacia Sandero is the best-selling vehicle in Croatia in September.

The Croatian new car market is down -10.3% year-on-year in September to 2.773 units, meaning the year-to-date tally is now up 32.3% to 37.392. We have a completely reshuffled brands ranking this month, with Kia (+66%) shooting up to its very first monthly win in Croatia (previous best was #2 in August 2013) with 9% share. Sister brand Hyundai (+5.1%) is up three spots on August to land in 2nd place overall, both Korean carmakers toppling year-to-date leader Volkswagen (-62.3%) in dire straits this month. Renault (+4.4%) is back up 6 ranks to #4 ahead of a struggling Skoda (-52.1%), while Dacia (+19.3%) advances one spot to #6. Mazda (+131.4%) and Suzuki (+26.2%) also impress in the remainder of the Top 10, while further down Tesla (+540%), Subaru (+250%), Jeep (+240%), Mini (+53.8%), Volvo (+50%) and Ford (+50%) stand out.

Model-wise, Dacia manages a fantastic 1-2 with the Sandero (+37.2%) best-seller and the Duster (+31.9%) at #2. The Kia Stonic (+50.9%) is up five spots on August to land on the third step of the podium ahead of the Suzuki Vitara (+72.3%) and last month’s leader the Jeep Compass. The Opel Crossland (+30.9%) and Hyundai Tucson (+13.8%) close out a very dynamic top of the charts. Among models punching above their weight this month, notice the Renault Twingo at #8, the Kia Sportage at #10, the Hyundai Kona at #11, Renault Megane at #12, Toyota Corolla at #19 – the first Top 20 finish for this generation – and the Mazda CX-30 at #20.
