Murcia (+17.9%), Galicia (+17.5%) and Comunidad Valenciana (+17.4%) also impress.

In the brands aisle, Peugeot (+7.1%) scores the pole position for the first time since December 2021 and compared to #5 in January and #6 over the Full Year 2023. The French carmaker topples Toyota (+0.8%) bumped down to #2. Volkswagen (+8.7%) almost matches the market and rallies back up five spots to #3 overall.
