The Peugeot 208 climbs onto the Argentinean podium in October.
The Argentinean new vehicle market is down -26% year-on-year in October to just 27.513 units, leading to a year-to-date tally up 16.2% to 330.883. Toyota (+15.2%) swims upstream to reach 19.2% share, cementing its new status as the favourite brand in Argentina. Fiat (-3%) edges down but Volkswagen (-44.4%) crumbles. Peugeot (+15.3%), Nissan (+5.1%) and Citroen (+1.9%) also post year-on-year gains in the remainder of the Top 10, while Jeep (-6.5%) contains its fall. Chevrolet (-62.6%), Renault (-53.1%) and Ford (-27.6%) on the other hand would rather forget this month. Further down the charts, Mercedes (+49.1%), Iveco (+71.4%), Agrale (+1062.5%) and BMW (+225.9%) stand out.
Model-wise, the Fiat Cronos (-1%) celebrates 14 consecutive months in pole position, distancing the Toyota Hilux (+22.2%) like it does year-to-date. The Peugeot 208 (+38.2%) leaps up five spots on September to end the month on the third step of the podium while the VW Amarok (-15.7%) remains in third place and the Ford Ranger (-0.3%) is down two to #5. The Toyota Corolla (+39%) and Jeep Renegade (+15.1%) also gain ground year-on-year in the remainder of the Top 10. Reversely, the VW Gol (-47.6%) and Renault Kangoo (-26.3%) both struggle. Below, notice the Peugeot Partner (+105.4%), Fiat Toro (+12.2%), Nissan Frontier (+14.1%) and Citroen Berlingo (+188.9%) all in positive inside the Top 20. The Toyota Corolla Cross (#16) is the best-selling recent launch (<12 months) above the VW Taos (#18) and Renault Alaskan (#20).
