Spain October 2023: Dacia Sandero reclaims top spot off MG ZS

The Dacia Sandero is the most popular vehicle in Spain in October.

77,892 new cars found a Spanish buyer in October, a 18.1% year-on-year improvement leading to a year-to-date cume up 18.5% to 789,272. An encouraging sign, private sales are the most dynamic this month at +22.2% to 38,110. Company sales advance 14.7% to 33,942 while sales to rental companies climb 12.7% to 5,840. Year-to-date, this time rental sales fare best at +42.8% to 123,934 followed by private sales up 15.4% to 340,196 and company sales up 14.3% to 325,142. Castilla la Mancha (+61.1%) is the best performing region this month ahead of Canarias (+37.9%), Aragon (+26.6%) and Cataluña (+22.9%).

Toyota (+18.4%) follows the market to remain dominant at 9% share vs. 7.2% for 2nd placed Kia (+1.9%) a lot more timid. Hyundai (+4.6%) is up four spots on September to #3 but only manages marginal year-on-year growth. In contrast Dacia (+83%) sports a fantastic gain and is up seven ranks on last month to end the month at #4 with 6.2% share, its best result since last January (#4 and 6.6%). Volkswagen (+8.6%), Renault (+12.2%) and Peugeot (+16.6%) can’t keep up with the market growth, Mercedes (+20.2%) edges past it and local fare Seat (+14.6%) is weak and stuck at a paltry 9th place. MG (+159.5%) continues to impress at #12. This month we welcome 3 Chinese carmakers: Omoda (#42), Yudo (#52) and Voyah (#53).

Over in the models ranking, the Dacia Sandero (+80.4%) reclaims the top spot it holds year-to-date with 3.9% share, a full percentage point above its YTD level of 2.9%. This is the Sandero’s 8th win in the past 13 months. Leader for the past two months, the MG ZS (+129.3%) retrogrades to 2nd place and advances to #7 in the year-to-date charts. The Toyota Yaris Cross (+93.9%) is up 18 spots on September to #3, its best ranking since hitting #2 in November 2022. Five of the next six models easily beat the market, with the Peugeot 2008 (+139.1%) the most dynamic above the Nissan Qashqai (+77.6%), Fiat 500 (+42.4%), Toyota Corolla (+39%) and C-HR (+27.7%).
