The VW Taigo breaks into the Croatian Top 20 in January.
New car sales in Croatia edge up 1.9% year-on-year in January to 2,971 units. Skoda (-1.9%) takes the lead this month with 12.3% share vs. 10.1% over the Full Year 2021. It distances 2021’s leader Volkswagen (-46.5%) in complete freefall this month. In contrast Kia (+126.3%) storms onto the podium, scoring the largest gain in the Top 5 just above Hyundai (+119.1%) while last month’s leader Dacia (+61.7%) is also in outstanding shape. In the remainder of the Top 10, Ford (+135.8%), Mercedes (+63.8%) and Toyota (+61.2%) also show explosive growth while Renault (+25.9%) is also very dynamic. Below, notice Cupra (+240%), Jeep (+113.6%), Porsche (+105.6%) and Mazda (+92%) all posting superb gains.
Model-wise, the Skoda Octavia (+27.6%) is up one spot on December to easily land in pole position with 6.2% share. It distances last month’s leader the Dacia Duster (+67.6%) also showing tremendous health. The VW T-Roc is up 7 ranks to round out the podium above a Jeep Compass (+184.8%) probably helped by rental sales. The Kia Xceed (+666.7%), Ford Focus (+358.8%), Mazda CX-30 (+307.7%) and Hyundai i20 (+241.1%) all score surreal upticks in the remainder of the Top 20. We have three recent launches in the Top 20: the Opel Mokka at #15, the VW Taigo at #16 for its first ever Top 20 finish in the world and the Toyota Yaris Cross at #17.
