Slovenia March 2022: VW Tiguan snaps first win in freefalling market (-34.5%)

The VW Tiguan is the best-selling vehicle in Slovenia in March.

The Slovenian new car market freefalls -34.5% year-on-year in March to just 4,627 units, leading to a year-to-date tally down a hefty -21.7% to 12,752. Volkswagen (-35.2%) remains in first place in the brands ranking while Skoda (-44.4%) and Renault (-43.9%) exchange positions to #2 and #3 respectively. Kia (-1.7%) resists very well to stay in the 4th spot while Toyota (46.8%) soars year-on-year and gains one spot on February to #5 overall. Only Opel (-12.3%) and Hyundai (-33%) beat the market in the remainder of the Top 10, with Dacia (-68.7%), Ford (-49.8%) and Peugeot (-48.2%) hit hard. Below, Mercedes (+73.9%), Tesla (+70.4%), Cupra (+27.6%) and Mitsubishi (+3.4%) defy the gloom in the remainder of the Top 25. 

Model-wise, the VW Tiguan (stable) is up 29 spots on February to snap its very first monthly win in Slovenia, with its previous best being #2 in January 2020. It distances the Kia Sportage (+43.2%) staying at #2 with the Renault Megane (+58%) surging 34 ranks on last month to #3. The Skoda Octavia (-44.5%) and Jeep Compass (+80%) round out the Top 5 with widely different fortunes. The Skoda Kodiaq (-6.7%) is the only additional nameplate to beat the market among the 10 best-sellers, while the new Toyota Yaris Cross at #8 (-3) remains by far the most popular recent launch. Notice also the VW Golf (-28%) rallying back up 16 spots on last month to #10. The Kia Xceed (+111.6%), Toyota Corolla (+6.9%) and Peugeot 3008 (+9.6%) also impress further down. Among recent launches the VW Taigo (#21), Opel Mokka (#28), Tesla Model Y (#35) and Hyundai Bayon (#50) slide into the Top 50.
