The Greek new car market starts the new year in a paltry way: down -28.9% to 5,521 registrations, while January 2021 was already down -20.6% on the year prior. Toyota (-21.7%) is the runaway leader with 18% share vs. 13% over the Full Year 2021 while Hyundai (-0.4%) climbs to 2nd place with 9.9% share vs. 8.7% over FY2021. Opel (+12.8%) rallies back up 12 spots on December to #3, distancing Peugeot (-62.5%) completely imploding. Jeep (+277.5%) and Dacia (+153.2%) defy the negative market with sensational gains, Audi (-0.9%) is stable and Nissan (-10.2%) outpaces the market even though it is in negative by the double-digits.
Over in the models ranking, the Toyota Yaris (-42.8%) reclaims the overall leadership as it has for the past 9 consecutive years, albeit with a ghastly year-on-year loss. It is followed by the Opel Corsa (+8%) up two spots from its FY2021 ranking. The Toyota Yaris Cross is the hero of the month, gaining 10 spots on December to land on the third step of the podium. It distances the Toyota Corolla (+5.7%), Dacia Duster (+123.9%) and Jeep Renegade (+603.8%) all vastly outpacing the market. The Audi Q3 (+409.4%) and Opel Crossland (+69.1%) also do extremely well in the remainder of the Top 10. Below the Yaris Cross, the Opel Mokka (#18) is the 2nd best-selling recent launch ahead of the Hyundai Bayon (#30).
