The Honda HR-V is inside the Brazilian Top 10 in August.

Fiat (+2.8%) doubles the market growth to easily remain in the lead of the brands charts with a splendid 23.1% share (vs. 10.7% at home in Italy). Chevrolet (-3%) is back above Volkswagen (-11.7%) but the latter is still ahead year-to-date for just 428 sales. Toyota (+17.3%) reclaims the 4th spot it holds year-to-date off Hyundai (-11.7%), in difficulty. Jeep (-0.1%) is stable and gains one rank on July to #6 ahead of a freefalling Renault (-23.5%).
