Greece May 2024: Suzuki Ignis scores first win

The Suzuki Ignis is the best-selling vehicle in Greece in May.

The Greek new car market is up 6.2% year-on-year in May to 13,760 sales. This way, the year-to-date tally is up 12.1% to 63,873. Toyota (+34.8%) sports another fantastic month at 16.2% share vs. 15.6% so far this year. But it is the following two brands that really impress: Suzuki is up 223.3% year-on-year to 13.7% share vs. 8.5% year-to-date and now ranks #3 YTD, and Fiat does even better at +457.7% to 7.1% share vs. 4.7% YTD. Peugeot (+17.5%) completes a Top 4 entirely beating the market. Hyundai (-12%) is in a rut at #4 while Citroen (+41.9%) and BMW (+13.9%) are both solid. Further down, Skoda (+347.9%) and Mitsubishi (+186.7%) stand out.

Over in the models lane, the Suzuki Ignis (+435.3%) spectacularly takes the lead with 6.5% share whereas it only rated #39 last month. It’s the first monthly win in Greece for the Ignis which is now #9 year-to-date. It is fair to assume this is the result of large rebates and strong sales to rental companies in preparation for the summer. It’s simple: the Top 8 models all vastly outrun the market with at lease double-digit gains. The Fiat Panda (+3840%!) is the most dynamic with a surreal lift, with the Citroen C3 (+856%), Suzuki Vitara (+636.9%) and Peugeot 2008 (+172.9%) also shooting up. The Toyota Yaris Cross (+93.2%), Toyota Yaris (+56.9%) – now #1 year-to-date – and the Suzuki Swift (+42.8%) also impress.
