New vehicle sales in Argentina register a second straight annual positive result and climb 6.7% year-on-year to 407,532 units. Toyota (+16.2%) more than doubles the market growth to cement its domination at 20.9%. In the space of a couple of years, Toyota has imposed itself as the main force in the Argentinean market. Fiat (+10.6%) is also very dynamic and lodges a second consecutive year of double digit gains to step up to 2nd place overall with 13.7% share. Volkswagen (-14.8%) goes against the positive market and drops to #3 whereas it led the way in 2020. Renault (+26.5%) and Peugeot (+31.2%) both soar and make it four double-digit gainers in the Top 5. Citroen (+11.3%) also shines at #9 in a year benefitting French carmakers.

Model-wise, strict restrictions on imported vehicles have continued to impact the local market, with 6 out of the 10 best-sellers locally produced, including the market leader: the Fiat Cronos (+3.6%). The Cronos widens the gap with the #2, going from 10,362 units in 2021 to 13,120 this year. The Peugeot 208 (+62.2%) is up two spots on last year to step up to 2nd place overall, dislodging the Toyota Hilux (-9%) and VW Amarok (+13.9%). The Toyota Etios (+29%) is in great shape despite of its age, and the same can be said of the Renault Sandero/Stepway (+96.7%) up 7 ranks to #6. The Chevrolet Cruze (+79.5%), Renault Kangoo (+67.1%) and Toyota Yaris (+21.5%) also beat the market in the remainder of the Top 10. Below, the VW Taos (+227.1%), Toyota Corolla Cross (+174.1%) and VW Polo (+137.9%) stand out. The Fiat Pulse (#31) and Ford Maverick (#38) are the most successful 2021 launches.
