The Opel Crossland is the best-selling vehicle in Croatia for the first time.
3,320 new cars hit Croatian roads in August, a splendid 16.9% jump on August 2021. The year-to-date tally is now down -6.9% to 32,245. Opel (+145.9%) is the runaway leader this month with a gargantuan 21.8% share, which should be a new record for the brand with a previous best of 16.9% in May 2014. Volkswagen (-8%) suffers with a negative result at #2 whereas Toyota (+97%), Dacia (+72.5%), Renault (+43.2%) and Skoda (+35%) all shine below. Suzuki (+18.8%) is the only additional Top 10 brand to beat the market. Further down, Mercedes (+185.3%), Volvo (+52.4%), Ford (+44.4%), Mitsubishi (+100%) and Porsche (+75%) stand out.
Model-wise, the Opel Crossland (+277.8%) is up four-fold year-on-year to easily snap the pole position with a mammoth 12.3% share, obviously a new record. It is the first time the Crossland ends the month in 1st place in Croatia, with a previous best of #2 hit in July 2021. Justifying Opel’s domination this month, the Corsa (+37.1%) ranks #2 with 5.5% share vs. #10 and 2% year-to-date. The Skoda Octavia (+17.4%), leader last month, evolves roughly like the market at #3, while the Dacia Duster (+227%) spots a stellar year-on-year gain at #4. Below the Dacia Sandero (-6.3%), the rest of the Top 10 all spectacularly more than double their sales year-on-year: the Opel Mokka is up 623.1%, the Renault Captur up 315%, the Toyota Yaris up 190.9%, the Hyundai Tucson up 160.7% and the VW Tiguan up 147.1%.
