The Skoda Octavia is the best-selling vehicle in Slovakia in September.
The Slovak new car market falls -9.7% year-on-year in September to 5,237 registrations, meaning the year-to-date volume is now off -1% to 58,106. Skoda (-6.7%) manage to keep its fall below the market rate to remain in first place with 16.8% share, Toyota (+5.5%) ignores the negative context to climb to second place with 10.3% share, whereas Hyundai (-28.2%), Kia (-23.5%) and Volkswagen (-18.7%) are all hit very hard. In contrast, Dacia (+62.4%), Suzuki (+48.2%), Peugeot (+47.6%) and to a lesser extent Opel (+12.6%) all post fantastic year-on-year gains.
Over in the models ranking, the Skoda Octavia (+87%) surges to first place with 4.1% share vs. 3.3% year-to-date, with the Skoda Fabia (-15.9%) also up two spots to #2. Leader for the past two months, the Kia Sportage (+28.6%) drops to #3 despite a very strong year-on-year uptick. The Dacia Duster (+187.7%) sports the largest gain in the Top 10, leaping up to #4 overall. The Toyota Corolla (+24.6%) also evolves markedly above its year-ago level and soars 8 ranks on last month to #5. Best-seller year-to-date, the Hyundai i30 (-38.9%) craters as does the #2 year-to-date, the Kia Ceed (-47.3%). There are no other gainers in the Top 10, with the Toyota RAV4 (-4.6%) resisting best.
