The Toyota C-HR is up to a record 2nd place in Poland in May.
34,942 new cars hit Polish roads in May, a -13.2% year-on-year decline that brings the year-to-date tally down -13.7% to 168,850. Toyota (17%) remains ultra dominant yet slightly below its YTD level of 18.4%. Volkswagen surges five spots on last month to land at #2 overall with 8.8% share, distancing Kia up one rank to #3 and 8.7% of the market. Reversely, Skoda (8.5%) is down two to #4 and Hyundai (7.4%) also down 2 spots to #5. BMW (5.6%) and Mercedes (5.4%) return to their YTD rankings at #6 and #7 respectively, both down one spot on April. Ford, Audi and Dacia round out the Top 10 like last month, with Fiat (#14) and Nissan (#15) inviting themselves inside the Top 15.
Over in the models aisle, the Toyota Corolla is the best-seller but at 4.4% it is almost one percentage point below its YTD level of 5.3%. The Toyota C-HR is up two spots on last month to #2, a new record eclipsing its previous best of #3 reached last December. The Kia Sportage is knocked down to #3 ahead of the Toyota RAV4 (+3) and Hyundai i30 staying at #5. The VW T-Roc is up four ranks on April to #7, the Kia Ceed up five to #8, the Ford Kuga up 15 to #10 and the Fiat 500 up 13 to #11. The Cupra Formentor rallies back from outside the April Top 50 directly to #18, a personal best, with the Toyota Yaris Cross down 10 ranks to #19 and the Toyota Aygo X making its debut in the Polish Top 50 directly at #20. We have another newcomer in the Top 50: the VW Taigo at #50.
