Excellent start of the year for the Estonian new car market, up 16% year-on-year to 1,713 registrations. Toyota keeps the lead of the brands ranking with 210 sales and 12.3% share, but Honda climbs onto an outstanding 2nd place at 153 units and 8.9% and is followed by Volkswagen (8.2%) and Skoda (7.4%). Hyundai is up to #5 at 7.4% vs. #10 and 4.6% in 2012, Volvo is up to #11 vs. #17 and Mazda up to #15 vs. #21.
Expectedly given the size of the Estonian market, the models ranking is a lot more volatile and see the Honda CR-V brilliantly grab the pole position this month thanks to 113 sales and 6.6% ahead of the Hyundai i30 at 57 units and 3.3%. Leader in 2012, the Toyota Avensis now shares the third spot with the Subaru Legacy with 54 sales and 3.2% while the Toyota Auris is up to #5 followed by the Nissan Qashqai, VW Golf and Skoda Octavia.
Other great performers this month in Estonia include the Toyota Land Cruiser 150 up to #9 vs. #15 over the FY2012, the Hyundai ix35 up to #10 vs. #24, Mazda6 up to #12 vs. #33, Kia Cee’d up to #14 vs. #23, Peugeot Partner at #15 vs. #42, the Peugeot 3008 up to #19, Skoda Rapid at #38, Porsche Cayenne at #39, Citroen C-Elysee at #41 and Dacia Lodgy at #45.
